I wrote a couple of months ago I was planning on setting out freelancing full-time after my graduation (and a trip to Japan). This has now all happened and I’m entering my third week working for myself 100% of the time.
I’m excited to be writing regularly again, and over the next couple of weeks I’ll be transitioning some content from BlogBettr to here and publishing a new post every fortnight. You can grab a newsletter subscription if you’d like to stay updated.
One of the first projects I’ve been working on is a free course for WordPress users to become WordPress masters and do everything they want, themselves.
There are a ton of WordPress courses for beginners and a second ton for experts, but nothing that bridges the gap – and that’s where MasterWP comes in.
I’m producing the course with Ben Gillbanks. Ben and I have worked together for years and have eighteen years of working with WordPress between us (me as a power user, Ben as a developer), so we cover all aspects of the WordPress spectrum.
The free course runs for a week and empowers you with the skills to set up sites how you want, manage sites for clients and vastly increase the value of your WordPress skills.
The full lesson breakdown looks like this:
- How to choose the perfect WordPress theme
- Get the most from theme support
- Theme customization basics (+ helpful plugins)
- Make your site load really quickly
- Using CDNs for extra speed
- Integrating email marketing with WordPress
- Keeping your WordPress site secure
The lessons are thoroughly detailed and packed with quick tips and convenient takeaways, so it’s worth grabbing the course even as a refresher. After all, it’s free 😁
The course starts next Monday (12th September) and signups are only open until then, so signup for free here.
We’re hoping to follow-up with a more detailed advanced course, so would love to help develop your skills and hear your thoughts. Let me know on Twitter.
