Overview

Having your own blog isn’t just for the nerdy anymore. Today, it seems everyone—from multinational corporations to a neighbor up the street—has a blog. They all have one, in part, because the folks at WordPress make it easy to have one. But to actually build a good blog—to create a blog people want to read—takes thought, planning, and some effort. From picking a theme and using tags to choosing widgets and building a community, creating your blog really starts after you’ve set it up. In Building a WordPress Blog People Want to Read by blogger extraordinaire Scott McNulty, you’ll learn how to:

• Install and get your WordPress site running. • Set up your site to ensure it can easily grow with you and your readers. • Be the master of user accounts. • Manage your site with the WordPress Dashboard and extend its capabilities with plug-ins. • Make the most of images. • Work with pages, templates, and links and—of course—publish your posts. • Use custom post types and taxonomies to bend WordPress to your will. • Deal with comments—if you even want readers commenting at all. • Find a theme and make it your own.
