What to expect from WordPress Made Easy

WordPress Made Easy is all about teaching beginners, newbies and non-techies how to use WordPress to build and manage websites and blogs without writing or editing code.

You can expect our tutorials to be written with the absolute beginner in mind.

We try to stay away from using jargon as much as possible, but inevitably, you will need to learn WordPress terminology to know and understand how to use it.

But don’t fret. You will pick it up.

WordPress used to be an easy platform to use to build websites and blogs.

I don’t think that’s the case anymore.

Especially for absolute beginners. The learning curve is steeper than ever before and there are hundreds of tools and add-ons fighting for your attention.

Once you have the WordPress skills you need up your sleeve, you can go on to build websites for other people, offer technical support services or create your own portfolio of websites. If you don’t like the idea of setting up on your own, there are plenty of WordPress-related jobs around. And the number will only increase as the platform grows in popularity.

The WordPress editing interface (aka Block Editor)

In recent years, the editing interface of WordPress has changed a lot. It’s adopted a more intuitive way of adding elements to a page or a post. It’s now more of a website builder than a blogging platform.

The new WordPress block-building interface, which is called Gutenberg, is still developing. With each new version of WordPress comes an updated version of Gutenberg, which is a good thing and a bad thing.

It’s great for users like you and me because our options get better with each iteration. But it’s a bad thing for tutorial creators as processes change all the time. For this reason, you won’t find many tutorials on the Gutenberg editor here.

I might change my mind over time, but if you do need help with using the WordPress block editor, I’m happy to provide one-to-one tutorials over a video call or face to face in a public place.
