Introduction to WordPress ScreenCasts

I talk a lot about WordPress. I’ve developed websites since 1994, and WordPress is the single best tool for websites that I’ve found. The reasons are subtle and non-obvious; While it’s easy for people to learn (relatively), and thereby gives a small business a great way to communicate via the web without having a dedicated HTML jockey on staff, that’s not the main impact. The main impact is that it is Search Engine Catnip!

This first series of ScreenCasts I’ve made are a simple introduction to WordPress. Each is only 5 minutes, and they are just me voicing-over a tour of WordPress in a web browser. They’re bite-size and painless.

The second series will actually guide you into creating Posts and Pages, placing photos, embedding content from sites like YouTube, and so on.
