Presented by Tom Catalini • Beginner Track
Two years ago Tom Catalini launched three properties on the self-hosted version of WordPress—a professional association website, a cycling hobbyists site, and a personal blog—taking him on a journey of trial and error in everything from tweaking the platform to integrating it with other platforms to developing an effective blog writing style.
Come get a head start on your own blog (or take it to the next level) by learning Tom’s Best Tips, which are specifically geared toward anyone running on or planning to launch a site on the self-hosted WordPress.org platform.
Topics covered will include specific WordPress settings, the best plug-ins and widgets, and ways to organize posts. Tom will also talk about developing a content strategy and schedule, how to find and use Creative Commons images for your posts (and why images matter), and making your posts easily shareable on other social media platforms. He’ll even share his best tips on coming up with ideas for posts, blog writing style and formatting, and finding your blogging voice.
The session will be fast-paced and interactive.
