Book Review: How To WordPress

 How to WordPress is 10 easy steps to creating a killer website using wordpress by Ciprian Chergheschu.  While I do have several blogs through wordpress, I am by no means an expert but was hoping that this e-book would teach me a new tip or trick to help with my blogging, even though this book is more geared for those who want to start a blog and know absolutely nothing about WordPress.

If you are looking to start a blog, this is definitely the guide for you.  I jumped in to WordPress not having a clue how it worked and I basically taught myself everything (by way of googling random things I wanted to try to do and problems I was having).  This book explains a lot of the problems I had in the beginning, and then some.  I certainly recommend being prepared when starting your blog and not just jumping in the deep end and trying to swim like I did.  Wordpress can be a bit overwhelming, but I assure you once you get the basics figured out it isn’t difficult to use at all! This guide will certainly get you off on the right foot.

As I had hoped – I did learn from the book on Step 10 – Optimize and promote your website with SEO & SEM.  This is something I have been struggling to understand and there was a lot of information that I had not found before in my searches.  SEO helps get your site placed on search engines to help more traffic come to it.  You want traffic, so you want to make sure your site is out there enough and has the right keywords to get the visitors you want to your site.  This chapter has a lot of websites to help you out in this aspect and I will be looking in to it more in the upcoming weeks!

Even though this book is only 28 pages, I have to say that it is a MUST HAVE guidebook for anyone looking to go in to blogging on the WordPress platform. (Which I certainly recommend over the competitors.)
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
