Come join us for our November presentation meeting! We’ll be meeting on November 5th for our monthly presentation meeting at the Ocala CEP’s main facility on Osceola Avenue in Ocala. You can register on Meetup.com for directions and more information.

For the November meeting, I’ll be talking about the basics  of WordPress, the blogging platform and content management system used by more than 600 million websites around the world, including:

WordPress is my go-to solution for new websites, especially those I’m doing for clients. It’s fast, easy to use and enables the user to focus on content rather than the technology itself but still allows advanced users to have a lot of control behind-the-scenes. I currently operate three WordPress sites, including this one!

During this meeting, we’ll be talking about how to get started with a new WordPress site including:

  • Choosing a web hosting service and domain name
  • The famous WordPress 5-minute setup
  • Choosing a theme for your site
  • An overview of the WordPress dashboard
  • Adding blog posts and site pages

With any time left, I’ll get into a few of my favorite free WordPress plugins, the add-ons that enable a sitemaster to quickly add functionality on demand.

Whether you are a current WordPress user or have never operated a website before, I’d encourage you to attend this meetup. Input and questions for both new and experienced users are always welcome!

ADDED BONUS!!

We have TWO tickets to give away for the 2014 Orlando WordCamp being held at the Rosen School of Hospitality on Universal Boulevard in Orlando, FL!
