Buy the book!

WordPress 2
This is not a paid solicitation.

 

I do not work for WordPress and am not being paid by them to encourage you to purchase this book.

 

But as someone who has been playing around with the platform for a few months now with the launch of the n10ah Online Music Network, I must say that only a few days after I received my copy as a Christmas gift I began to learn a few things.

 

Not that the WordPress platform is the only one I’ve used or would recommend. Far from it.

 

The current bootstrap entrepreneurial blog I edit for the Creative Weblogging network, for example, is a modified TypePad platform and

 

The Upstart Entrepreneur, my very first business blog, was created on Blogger, a platform I still like because of the easy access to the document code.

 

There is also Blogtronix, a very cool platform I would describe as blogging plus with Wikis, message boards and other functions thrown in. I was given a chance to test drive that platform back in mid-December.

 

But few other blog platforms that I know of have taken the time and energy to publish a how-to manual to help with operation.

 

The book, WordPress 2 Visual Quickstart Guide, by Maria Langer and Mariz Jordan, covers basics like setting blog options, adding content and working with accounts that anyone can probably figure out just by sitting down with the platform.

 

But there are also sections on customizing themes, using plug-ins and advanced tasks that are likely to prove useful in enhancing your blog’a appearance.

The book is $17.24 from Amazon and well worth the investment.
