Welcome to the WordPress Unraveled course.
WordPress is one of the most powerful tools for running an online website or blog.
But you and I both know it can get tricky at times.
Especially if you’re new to this and don’t consider yourself a technical mastermind.
In this course, we’ll unravel the knot that is WordPress.
And we’ll do it in a casual, step-by-step manner.
No fancy graphics. Just me, and you, having a chat.
