WordPress is a great CMS that started out as a humble blogging tool. This session will go "back to the roots" and focus on using WordPress to write a great blog.
You don't need any blogging experience to attend, but you should have a WordPress blog set up somewhere. We'll be actually doing stuff, it's not just show&tell time.
What we will cover:
- why blog? about what? what will it achieve?
- using WordPress to blog (technicalities): posting an article, managing comments, settings and stuff
- how to write when you're blogging
- advanced topics: multi-author blogs, scheduling articles, multiple languages, and promoting your blog.
