So here I am, day two of the course, 4 days after completing day one, and well, it took me two minutes. Changing the title and identity of the site. I actually did it last time but even if I hadn’t, it would have taken me a few more minutes than two.
Here’s hoping the rest of the course goes like this as school holidays with two incredibly competitive boys doesn’t leave much time for anything.
I must also give a piece of great feedback about WordPress help. Getting myself all confused last time I contacted help. They, Matt Reynolds, to be more precise, was friendly, responsive, and even told me of another course with Udemy, The Complete Web Developer Course 2.0. I had to pay for this course but it was discounted by 90% and cost USD 10. I’m not necessarily skeptical of nature, so am taking this to be good luck and a sign that I’m doing the right thing. I’ll get back to you on that one.
So here I am, sick 8 year old next to me, myself sick needing the toilet every two minutes, trying to start something serious and fulfilling, on the way to building a business, to build an income for my family. Me thinks I might be trying to achieve the impossible today.
After consulting with my trusted Monday to Sundays friends, a term we use for our closest and oldest of friends, I’ve finally succumbed to the TV babysitter so I can finish this.
I’ve joined the WordPress Blogging Fundamentals course and it’s day one, writing a post, which of course this is. This is actually my second blog post so let’s see if it’s better than the first where I had no tips from WordPress.
The advice is be specific, or general. Now my mates have always said that I’m pretty good at sitting on the fence, but this takes the biscuit.
So while writing my post I get referred back to all the things you should have done before this Get Going Quick.
Steps I suggest:
- Follow the Get Going Quick
- Then create the About pages
- Then start the WordPress Blogging Fundamentals course
Or ultimately, in the very near future, come to me and I’ll do it for you.
