Not about what the title says - basic intro
, January 12, 2010
This book is deceptively titled: there is not a single word in it about what differentiates a blog people want to read from one that people don't want to read. It makes no mention of content, design, or promotion of a blog at all. It is a basic introduction to installing wordpress and using the wordpress software - how to post, use themes, etc.
As a walk-through instroduction for someone's first encounter with blogging software, this book may be fine. If you're familiar with other blogging software, or fairly computer savvy, there's little or nothing in this book you won't figure out yourself by exploring the software a little. And if you're interested in blog content or promotion, this book has nothing in it for you at all, despite the title.
A more accurate title would be something like 'a beginner's guide to using the wordpress software.'
