Event Details

You want a website, but you’re not a web designer, and you don’t want to be.

You just want to blog. Or you just want to put up a website for your church, your non profit, your club, your family re-union, your new business. Or you own a small business and every time you want to change something on your website your web designer holds your website hostage (that’ll be $100, every time, thank you)..

And all you need is something that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg and looks exciting,  reflects your style, and oh please, let it be easy to maintain!

You should take this class.

In this lively hands-on 5 session class learn WordPress, the free software that millions of people use  to share interesting and fresh ideas for both blogging or to create professional looking websites. With this popular content management system  the days of boring, outdated and static content websites are over. And you’ll get found, because search engines love Wordpress.

You can succeed in finally creating the blog or website you want - even if you’ve never before managed your own site, because it’s so easy to use.

This class starts Tuesday May 31, 2012 and meets from 6:30pm  to 8:30pm.

Every session you’ll also take home lots of Internet resources to investigate and apply to your site, and ideas for creating content for your site - so that you will know exactly what you want to write about for your topic to keep it interactive, well organized and fun.
