Event Details

WordPress Series
Set up your own web pages!

Instructor Carolyn Erickson is a freelance writer and blogger who has built several sites using WordPress. In 2009, she founded Wichita on the Cheap, a website devoted to the best deals, discounts and bargains in Wichita.

WordPress tools make it easier for anyone to set up and maintain their own basic websites.

So if you know you need a website, and haven't gotten one yet; or if WordPressyou've paid someone else to make one and aren't happy with the results;  if you don't like waiting for your web person to make updates for you, or if you just don't feel you can justify the expenditure on a web developer --THIS is the class for you!

Sign up for just one class, or save by signing up for the entire series.  Choose the series ticket to purchase all the classes for $190 (equal to getting one class free).
