How to Build Websites with WordPress

People often ask me what software I use to build websites, expecting to hear something like “Dreamweaver” or “XSitePro” and they’re usually surprised to learn that all new sites that I build are now done with WordPress!

In this video, I walk you through the simple process of setting up a WordPress site to be used as a regular website.

    [..YouTube..] Um… I’m guessing since you use it, than it doesn’t give viruses or anything like that, right? Because I’ve used Webstarts, and someone hacked into my e-mail. I’ve been kind of scared to go to another one of these sites ever since…

    [..YouTube..] @The2012girl Any site can get hacked, but WordPress is kept up to date pretty often so security holes are plugged quickly.

    Hope that helps! ๐Ÿ™‚

    [..YouTube..] Hi, if you could post how to progress to building basic things into the site like coloured text boxes that are links etc. Another thing is inserting feature photos – something so simple yet a challenge for a beginner wordpress user.

    If you could highlight some things that are so easy in Apples’s iweb (pity iweb works so badly when you eventually publish what initially appears to be a great site) yet seemingly so hard with wordpress when you are a beginner – that would be great.
