Wordpress & Technology

LEARNING TO USE WORDPRESS

WordPress is the only platform I recommend for blogging. There’s so much research and data that Wordpress has better SEO, functionality that allows you to customize and create a better reader experience and overall leads to more traffic, profit and growth.

The Tech Library

A lot of students find the tech of Wordpress intimidating (this used to be me, by the way!) which is why I created the Tech Library. These in-depth video trainings walk you through step by step of how to use Wordpress and set-up your blog. 

This is a great resource for brand new bloggers and established bloggers who are currently on Squarespace, Wix or another platform. 

WEBSITE HOSTING

The best, cheapest and easiest website hosting option for beginning bloggers is Bluehost. They’ve got a few different plans, but I recommend just starting with the Basic Plan for just $2.95/month (this is a special deal just for my readers; normally it’s $7.99/month). You’ll also receive a free domain name and Wordpress installation! *Note, since my page views have surpassed 50,000 per month, I’ve upgraded my hosting service to Cloudways, but until you need the upgrade Bluehost is the best place to get started.
