Build a Blog Workshops

What are you waiting for?

It is so easy to get on the web today!

A blog is fast, easy to learn and affordable…sometimes even FREE!

We can walk you through the process of starting a blog, creating a look and feel and teach you how to make the images of your artwork so irresistible that people will beg to own a piece!

Blogging is the single best way of reaching your audience and creating a following of fans and collectors. Every artist needs a blog today! Trust me, Leonardo DaVinci would have a blog today!

Please create your first site on WordPress. It can grow and flex with you, and there are thousands of talented designers who can help you with it. Please do NOT create your first site on Godaddy or some other web host site. It  looks clunky, and you are going to have to move it to a more elegant site later. -Pamela Slim, Escape from Cubicle Nation

Build a Blog Workshops

Like Pamela Slim advises above I beg you, please create your first site on WordPress! We believe in the WordPress Blogging platform. We use it, we teach it, we recommend it and we love it! Don’t be hog-tied by your pricey webmaster any longer. We have 3 levels of WordPress Blogging Training plus we also can customize your blog on any platform. ..no project is too small or large.

WordPress Expert

Once installed on your web hosting platform, WordPress is pretty easy to use. However, if you’re new to WordPress, installing and configuring your site to look and work the way you want it to often takes a bit of learning and direction. That is what I do best…hold you hand as we create your site together.

We love what we do. And it shows! We offer a variety of technical support and services for the artisan blogger – from 1st timer to experienced, from casual blogger to pro blogger. We can help you set up your site, teach you how to use WordPress and/or a custom theme, design a look and feel for your blog, teach you to use PhotoShop for blogging, plus we can arrange for you to Fire Your WebMaster and take control of your website with the powerful WordPress Content Management System (CMS). If you don’t see what you need below, just contact Rebecca with a request.
