During my first 100 posts, I have been getting used to the routine of blogging. I have been mainly focused on the content and not worrying about the presentation. I have been kind of taken for granted the software called WordPress. WordPress provides a consistent and feature rich user experience for bloggers and blog readers.
I just finished reading a book titled “WordPress for Dummies by Lisa Sabin-Wilson.” The first half of this book was mostly a review for me. It covered many things I had discovered the hard way. It was good to read another point of view on WordPress. It reinforced what I had already learned, plus I picked up some new tidbits along the journey. The second half of WordPress for Dummies covers all the stuff under the hood; the details of WordPress themes and Plug-ins and how to customize the user experience. This was the main reason I bought the book and wasn’t disappointed. I have already learned many new things I plan to utilize in the future.
One of my goals for the next 100 is to focus on the user experience.
With my website I plan to:
- Learn how WordPress themes work
- Learn how WordPress Plug-ins work
- Customize a WordPress them with my own style and photos
- Develop a WordPress plug-in or two that has a great feature everybody wants and needs
