Here at WordPress Building Blocks, we’ll start at ground zero and help you build a WordPress site from the ground up — one building block at a time.
If you’re already pretty comfortable with site building, HTML, CSS, PHP and all those other acronyms, this might be a little too fundamental for you. But if words like “hosting,” “theme” and “plugin” make your palms sweat, stick around.
You’ll be glad you did.
Why I Started WordPress Building Blocks
I’m Susanna Perkins.
In 2008, I switched from building websites the traditional way to building beautiful sites using WordPress. I was thrilled with how easy it was compared to HTML coding with CSS and lots of other acronyms.
During this time I’ve helped quite a few others to set up their own websites with WordPress. Some of them didn’t have any previous background with site building, and they were pretty nervous about the whole thing.
That’s when I realized there was a real need for a place to learn the basics. (Think about the classic Vince Lombardi quote, “Gentlemen, this is a football.”)
And not the basics the way a guy with an IT degree wants it, but basics for us non-technical people. (Yes, I consider myself a non-technical person. I’ve learned it all by hard slogging.)
Start Learning About WordPress Here
A good way to get started is to request the free WordPress Beginner’s Blueprint. You’ll have access right away to this helpful tool which will help you get your WordPress site started the right way.
After that, you’ll receive a few emails to help you get started, and then an occasional informative email from me.
And by “informative email,” I don’t mean something like, “oh, look at my latest post and here’s a link.”
No, I actually give my best stuff to my email subscribers first. Recent emails included some new information about site security, changes to themes, updates on plugins, and links to articles on choosing a domain name and adding e-commerce to your WordPress site.
Already Have a Site and Want to Improve It?
If you’re already built a site and it’s not performing as well as you’d like, I can help.
There are a lot of reasons you might not be getting the results you want. I can perform a 7-point site analysis and show you exactly what’s working and what could be working better.
