I’ve been fortunate to do a lot of speaking lately, and I’ll be slowly getting those presentations online, but I wanted to share this one presentation I did for the Stampa all’Estera, the Foreign Press in Milan.
They specifically asked me to speak about using WordPress as a website, instead of a blog, as many journalists are now interested in maintaining personal websites as well as continuing to create all the content they do for external publications.
I really only needed one slide to explain how to do that – it’s very easy! I’ll let you discover how via the slides.
The presentation is geared at those very new to WordPress – so new, in fact, that I included a little bit about WordPress’ history and its community which I think are strong points in choosing to use it (awesome people are making an awesome product).
We spent a lot of time in questions after the presentation, many of which would have been answered by articles I’ve already written on this site, like:
- What is DNS? DNS in Plain English
- How to Choose Web Hosting for your Website or Blog
- Ask the Geek: How Do I Find and Install a WordPress theme?
- The Quick and Dirty Guide to Getting Started with WordPress
The slides aren’t actually meant to be self-explanatory – I went in-depth into most of the concepts and screenshots in person, and don’t like to put much content in my slides, so if you have questions, be sure to let me know!
