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.

Rapid WordPress Websites A visual step-by-step guide to building WordPress websites fast! Updated 8th October to Cover WordPress version 4
Did you ever wish there was a tutorial that would show you just what you needed to know to create your first WordPress website, without having to wade through stuff you'll never use?
Well this book is that tutorial. It teaches you on a strictly "need-to-know" basis, and will have you building your own website in hours. And I don't leave you stranded either. I created a companion website for readers of this book, with tutorials and help to take your WordPress skills to the next level, when, and only when, YOU are ready.
What's in this book?
We start at the very beginning by getting good, reliable web hosting and choosing a domain name. I actually walk you through every step, so there will be no confusion. Once you have your domain, we'll install WordPress and have a look around the WordPress Dashboard – think of this as your mission control.
After planning what we want to do, we'll actually build the companion site as we work through the book. We cover the essential settings in WordPress that you need to know, how to use the editor, the difference between pages and post, categories and tags, etc.
We'll set up custom navigation so your visitors can find their way around your WordPress site, and carefully use widgets to enhance the design and user experience. Once the site is built, we'll play around with customizing the look and feel using themes, and I'll point you in the direction of some interesting plugins you might like to look at. These will be covered in more depth on the companion website. The book will take you from nothing to a complete website in hours, and I'll point out a number of beginner mistakes and things to avoid.
Who am I?
My name is Andy Williams and I am a WordPress-a-holic. I've been using WordPress for nearly 10 years to build sites for myself, and my clients. I run a newsletter over at ezseonews.com.
