This quick and dirty course will get you up and running using WordPress in under an hour.

These clear and easy-to-follow lessons are ideal for complete beginners, anyone who has a WordPress hosted website that someone else made for them, or for someone tasked with having to edit and contribute to their organization’s WordPress website who has no idea where to begin.

I start from the very beginning and show you the most essential and important features of the WordPress dashboard and interface.

I’ll show you how to get started making posts, pages, and managing all aspects of your WordPress hosted website so that by the end of the day today you can already add a new skill to your CV or resume and be contributing or editing your WordPress site at home or at work.

These powerful, bite-sized lessons come directly from my larger (8+ hours long) Web Snax: Super Simple Recipes for Easy Website Design course which is a full web design foundations class that not only gets into WordPress, but also how to plan and organize websites, create online graphics and animations, HTML and CSS, adding Javascript, and making beautiful websites from scratch in a variety of ways using an intuitive right-brained method that requires little to no coding ability.
