Follow-Up: WordPress Webinar Part 2: Dissecting the Dashboard

Last night we had another great webinar on WordPress! We had around 75 attendees or so as I checked throughout the session.  While last week we introduced everyone to WordPress and looked at the .com hompage, this time we really spent time going through most of the features of the Dashboard.

We covered a lot, and I still didn’t’ get to go through all I wanted to! Then, Myrt continued to work on Myrt’s site, this time with an emphasis on the Appearance options. 

Here are my slides from last night.  Keep in mind that these are demo/workshop sessions, so there are not many slides here, but you can have them for reference.  See my previous blog post for slides from Session 1

Follow-Up: WordPress Webinar Part 1

Tonight was a great night! I completed my very first full webinar and had the opportunity to start teaching how to use WordPress!  Many thanks to DearMyrtle for offering it and extending the invitation to me to teach it.

During tonight’s webinar, I shared information on the history of WordPress, it’s overall philosphy and gave an introduction on how to get started using WordPress.com – the easiest way to get started with it.  You can view the slides below, or check back in a few days for the link to the archived version of the webinar.

The feedback from everyone was great so that was motivating. Not bad for my first full-length webinar huh? :-)

Next week, we will go into more detail with the Dashboard, play around with choosing Themes, and start to make the transition to the .org version of WordPress.  Check slide #43 for resources. Join us!
