Business Blogging 101 — Free WordPress Tutorials — New to This Site? Start Here:

Welcome to Free WordPress Tutorials – Business Blogging 101! This video is an introduction to the Business Blogging 101 website, a site dedicated to free tutorials and support for WordPress created by Mark McLaren of McBuzz Communications.

Free, Easy WordPress Tutorials

These are all easy WordPress tutorials and they are all free! Whether you have a WordPress blog or a WordPress website, most of the tutorials are for beginners, but there are intermediate-level tutorials and discussion about advanced techniques for WordPress including how to customize a WordPress theme, recommendations about the best WordPress plugins and themes, hacks and workarounds for WordPress using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), PHP and HTML – and much, much more! 😉

There are a few advanced tutorials. The tutorials’ degree of difficulty is determined by the amount of skill and experience you need with HTML, CSS and in some cases PHP code. If you don’t have experience with these, don’t worry! That’s the beauty of WordPress.

On this site, you will learn about WordPress, Blogging and Online Marketing, including Search Engine Optimization. Ask questions, comment and connect with other WordPress users.

The first installment of Business Blogging 101’s Answers to General Questions About WordPress has gotten rather long – 65+ entries and counting, including questions and replies – so here’s another post for Questions About WordPress. Keep ’em coming!

Questions About Online Marketing, Websites, Search Engine Optimization? Ask Them Here

A few months ago, I created a post where people can ask general questions about WordPress. The response has been terrific! Since I also get questions about online marketing, website design, search engine optimization, and other things of a more general nature, I thought it would be a good idea to create a post to accommodate those, as well. So here it is!

Thanks, everyone, for your continued interest in WordPress, online marketing and Business Blogging 101 tutorials!

Add a Photo Slideshow to WordPress with Slide.com

It is truly amazing how many resources and tools are available online these days – absolutely free. Here’s one more example. You can create a slideshow on Slide.com and easily embed it into a WordPress page or post. I made the slideshow below by importing images from my Flickr account directly into Slide.com. You can do the same, or upload images from your computer, or get them from any number of other sources.

Choose from prefab themes and custom colors, add captions and a title, give Slide your email address, choose a username/account URL (mine is mcbuzz.slide.com) and password, click Save. Then click on the WordPress option to embed the slideshow. Copy the code for WordPress. Paste that into the HTML editing window of your WordPress editor. Preview or Publish, and BOOM, you’re done.

Using a Free Blogging Service vs. Blogging on Your Own Hosted Site

Using a Free Blogging Service vs. Blogging on Your Own Hosted Site is a slideshow from a July, 2008, presentation by Mark McLaren of McBuzz Communications.

Who can learn from this presentation? Anyone who is new to blogging or at a beginner level of blogging.

Topics covered: Free blog services like WordPress.com and Blogger.com; Third-party hosted blogging; How to decide which of these is best for you; What is a Plugin? What is a Theme? And what is a Widget?

First used as part of a live presentation at Social Media Camp Seattle 2008, these slides have been modified to include much of the spoken component given by Mark McLaren at Social Media Camp.
