Last year, my father asked my brother and I if either of us were interested in taking over LAFFhouse for him. At the time, I told him that my main obstacle is time. It still is!
But last week I figured it was worth looking into and I browsed various free software for making web pages. I am so glad that I didn’t stop there! AFTER downloading some nice software which would certainly give me the functionality I require, I decided it would probably be too much work.
I don’t recall how I stumbled into
WordPress, but somewhere I did and here we are! WordPress is a free content management system. It allows me to choose (and fine tune) a theme for the site but then not have to worry about it!
I already had a subscription to Lynda.com — a company (now owned by Linked In) that provides subscribers with access to hundreds of training videos and courses. I did a search for WordPress training and found a ton of classes.
Over a threeish day period, I took the
WordPress Fundamentals course by Morten Rand-Hendriksen and here we are! This site is a dual testimonial to the ease of WordPress and the well-presented training from Mor10.
