About This Class

If you're an intermediate/advanced user of WordPress, this is not the class for you

If you're considering using WordPress for your blog or business and are super new to the technology, you're the person who I created this class for.

We'll walk through:

  • Why WordPress? 
  • Basic WordPress terminology
  • Basics regarding editing appearance
  • Basic settings to configure from the onset
  • Top plugins to add functionality to your WordPress website

It would be helpful to have a WordPress website in order to follow along but isn't necessary. You can download my slides and resources below:

Why I'm qualified to teach this class: I'm very deeply involved in the WordPress community: writing for the #2 WordPress blog (WPMU DEV), being an organizer/speaker/attendee at multiple WordCamp events, and using the content management system for clients and my own projects!

Hey all! I'm Maddy Osman, or as my clients know me, The Blogsmith. I write for high-authority publications like Search Engine Journal, GoDaddy, WPMU Dev, and Sprout Social.

It's hard for me to sit still, and I'm the co-organizer of WordCamp Denver and the Denver chapter of Freelancers Union. I'm also on the board for BMA Colorado in charge of social media.

After a few years in sales, I was feeling unfulfilled and decided to go out on my own. Thanks to many years of blogging...
