Website Development

All the websites I develop now are in WordPress, because it allows me to create sites that non-techie people can manage and update on their own, without needing to learn html or hire a webmaster. Besides that, WordPress offers built-in search engine optimization and content management functionality. (If you’re technically inclined, you’ll realize how important that is. If you’re not, you’ll be glad it’s built in.)

I can help you:

  • Decide between using WordPress.com and WordPress.org
  • Get your new site up and running
  • Convert an existing site to WordPress
  • Understand WordPress and general blogging terminology
  • Learn WordPress structural basics: themes, pages, posts, and categories
  • Choose an appropriate theme from among the thousands that are available
  • Customize or fine-tune a theme so it meets your functional and aesthetic needs
  • Learn formatting basics: bold, italics, indents, quotes, centering, text justification, colored text, heading styles
  • Understand linking: adding links, which text to link to, using a blogroll
  • Crop, size, and upload photos; use post image and thumbnail image features

If you’re new to WordPress, you might want to have a look at this series of five short WordPress orientation posts I wrote for Likoma.com. Or head over to WordPress.com for a look at WP’s features or to use their support documentation to get started.
