WordPress Tutorials for WordPress 3.0 – Mark McLaren Recommends WP101

Results are in from my survey regarding what free easy WordPress tutorials you would like to see next on Business Blogging 101, and they are strongly in favor of an Introduction to WordPress 3.0.

While I’m working on a WordPress 3.0 tutorial, I want to bring to your attention another really outstanding resource for WordPress Tutorials: the “WordPress 101” site created and maintained by Shawn Hesketh.

I just signed up for WordPress 101 myself to see what’s covered. I was familiar with these tutorials already. Now they have been updated to cover WordPress version 3.0. And you can “Pay What You Wish”, meaning you pay what you feel is appropriate / what you can afford.

Shawn’s video tutorial style is exemplary. Unlike some other WordPress video tutorial makers I know 🙂 , Shawn does not shoot from the hip. His presentations are polished and precise. Think about the time and care taken to make these tutorials – and how much you will gain by following them – when you decide on an amount you want to pay. (Not to mention the fact that Shawn donates half to charity!) Paying a few dollars does not get much easier – and more win-win-win – than this!

So check out WordPress 101 Tutorials, and let me – and Shawn, of course – know what you think! After you have done that, I’m sure you’ll have some ideas about other things you would like to know about WordPress 3.0 – and Free, Easy WordPress Tutorials on Business Blogging 101 will be happy to deliver.

Free Easy WordPress Tutorials: Vote For a WordPress Tutorial Topic

Free WordPress Tutorials: Business Blogging 101 is getting more visitors than ever. WordPress 3.0 is out and flourishing (because it ROCKS). The new default WordPress theme, Twenty Ten, is more WordPressy AWESOMENESS. There has even been a recent resolution to an ongoing disagreement about the General Public License and Thesis WordPress theme.

With all this going on, I feel a need to create some more easy WordPress Tutorials that will add to the growing list and help more people discover and learn to use WordPress.

Use the Poll above to vote or nominate your own WordPress tutorial topic. I haven’t tried this kind of WordPress/Polldaddy poll  before, but I’ll add your suggestions if several people list the same one or something similar.

Feel free to include your own ideas for WordPress tutorials in more detail using the comment form.

UPDATE: Votes for the next easy WordPress Tutorial topic are already coming in. Thanks, everyone!
I need more votes, so tell a friend!

I’m using a PollDaddy poll, which is really easy to do on WordPress.com. There’s also a PollDaddy plugin you can use to create polls and surveys on a self-hosted WordPress site. My poll has an option for “Other” so you can write in your own topic if none of my suggestions sounds good. Here’s how the poll results look when you view them in the WordPress Dashboard. Pretty darn cool!
