Beginning with WordPress, A wordpress tutorial

WordPress is like the best blogging software, If you want to do it the easy way, you can always start a blog by going to WordPress.com
and signing up.

The other option is actually purchasing web-space, installing WordPress in the purchased web space, and setting up your “self-hosted” WordPress blog.

Either way you choose to go, if you are new to WordPress, you have some things to learn before getting too far. For instance, what are widgets? Sidebars? Headers and footers? For veteran bloggers, these terms are second nature but for a newbie (please don’t be offended at the term), they have to learn.

Enter video WordPress tutorials! I love being able to help people get started with new technology. I just recently helped out a few friends with WordPress sites and it was a blast. I did a video tutorial or two but what I found out was that much of my work wasn’t really needed! When I ran into WordPress.tv, a site with some of the best WordPress tutorials out there, I almost fell over!

is a very well-done site full of tutorials showing you how to do everything from managing widgets to adding Twitter updates to your sidebar to adding a Paypal button to you blog! Now if I want to show someone how to do something, I can either record a screencast for them and figure out how to share it with them OR I can head over to WordPress.tv and see if it’s something that’s already covered, saving me much time and effort!

It’s really that easy. As you’ll be able to tell when you browse the site, they have tutorials for novices and the more experienced. I think you’ll be pleased by what you find at WordPress.tv.
