Project Description

Launch A New Wordpress Blog or Website!

Assignment: Launch that next big idea that you've been thinking about. Your assignment is to install a Wordpress website or blog using the cheat sheet as your resource guide.  Please share your url and a screen grab of your new website in the Project Gallery and help inspire others in the class to launch.

Free Downloads: Download the PDF Cheatsheet and follow along to launch your next website. Also included is a Photoshop template to create a child theme thumbnail.

The hardest part about starting a new website or business is taking the first step. I know. I am the king of paralysis analysis, so I created this class to motivate and simplify the process of starting a new website or blog. It's easy and you can repeat it over and over.

The PDF Wordpress Install Checklist should be a handy resource so you can create as many sites as you need without ever worrying about missing a step.

While this part of the class does not cover customizing or design, setting up a new site should give you the motivation to get your business off to the races. Installing is the boring technical part that confuses many, but customizing is the fun part, so after your site is installed, go exploring and create something amazing! (Or wait for Part II about customizing your Wordpress install :D.

I can't wait to hear your success stories! If you get stuck, just let me know in the discussion.
