Meet the Author

Heather Wright-Porto holds a master s degree in computer information systems and has had her own computer consulting company, Premier Computer Solutions, since 1995. She has trained clients on Microsoft Office, as well as Photoshop, Illustrator, Quark, and other graphic design applications, in addition to developing databases (using Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle), programming in Visual Basic, and creating websites (using ColdFusion, HTML, and JavaScript). She also worked at New York University's School of Medicine as a senior database developer for more than nine years. In November 2009, her focus shifted to expanding and building her Blogs by Heather business (BlogsByHeather.com). In July 2010, she published her first book, Beginning Google Blogger, and in the fall of 2010 began writing her second, Creative Blogging.

Heather enjoys writing and sharing her blogging knowledge and experience with her readers. She hopes to continue writing technical books and maybe will even write a children's book someday. Her days are also filled with raising her young family, Luke and Michaela.

As a creative outlet and for her love of art, she became a Stampin Up! Demonstrator in October 2006. She is what is considered a hobby demonstrator, but enjoys making and selling cards at local shops, holding child and adult craft programs at local libraries, as well as workshops at her home with customers, friends and family.

Heather is easygoing, but very ambitious and detailed-oriented (how does that combination work?). She gets great enjoyment in helping others and more so in making people smile. She is blessed and fortunate to have the life she has, and to be surrounded by a loving family and wonderful people.

    I like it!

    Blogger isn't hard but this book makes it fun. Sample is rather useless though.
