Best Way To Learn About Wordpress

Last Update: June 21, 2016

Hi Everyone

Did you ever try to use Wordpress before joining Wealthy Affiliate? If so, how did you get on? If you were a total beginner. like I was. Wordpress was like a foreign country! There are tutorials on there, but I did not find them at all easy to follow, and my whole experience with it was little short of a disaster - at best, a complete waste of time!

I needed proper help badly!!

Then I was lucky enough to find Wealthy Affiliate! Weren't we all?!?

When I followed Kyle's brilliant training I gradually began to learn the language of Wordpress, as it were. As I'm sure you know, there are trainings on every aspect of Wordpress, ranging from how to build your site and how to use it, to how to use SEO to make your site work properly for you, how to monetise your site, and much much more.

And whenever you meet a difficulty to which you can't find the answer in the trainings, then you only have to ask your question, and the brilliant community at WA will go out of their way to come to your help. There are so many members who are experts in their own right - Marion Black, for example, knows about just about everything to do with Wordpress, and is always generous with her help.

There was even was one occasion where I simply could not find an answer that I needed. So what happened. One of WA'S amazing members, PJGermain, created a training which showed me in detail exactly what I needed to do to solve the problem, and I am sure that that helped many other people too.

Where else could you possibly find help like this? The simple answer is nowhere! Wealthy Affiliate is unique in the help and support which is available for all members, and I, for one, bless the day I found it! We are all so incredible lucky to have these amazing resources which will help us to learn exactly what we need to do to create a successful Online Business.

So I just want to say a great big to Kyle and Carson and all the incredibly helpful members of WA for everything that we have here!

Wealthy Affiliate really is the very best way to learn about Wordpress and every other aspect of Online Marketing!

Very many thanks for reading this, and may you all have another great, positive and productive day here at WA:)

You're absolutely right, Chrissie! It was hit-and-miss experience even when I read the tutorials from everywhere. This is where I found the best instruction manual for building a functional website. I have to go over my ePortfolio which I made in WordPress to make sure that I worked on it properly.

Before I joined WA, I started a website on Wordpress by myself!! I was supposed to get help from a 'certain expert', but her directions were TERRIBLE and I was totally lost! Starting here was a whole different ball game. WA made things SO easy to get a website up and running the same day!! I was amazed and I have come a long way thanks to WA :-)

It is so much better when we are shown how to use WP and not have someone do it for us!

I couldn't agree more Chrissie... I have a great reference book, which did help get me started, I've watched countless Youtube tutorials and how-to videos, BUT - I really didn't begin to grasp the power and functionality of WordPress until I joined WA. And the hosting here provides more themes, more security and more support than you can find anywhere else for the money - even if you took away all the training!

All true and all helpful Chrissie! Thank you VERY much.

PS - IT is best to follow Chrissie's advice. I can attest to the fact that sleeping with the book "All About Wordpress" under your pillow for a week will do nothing except give you a sore neck!

Happy Tuesday!
