Video Website all about WordPress

I’ve found a great resource for you in the WordPress arena, it’s called and they have loads and loads of detailed videos all about using WordPress.

I am a converted user of WordPress because it is so damn fast to build a website and get it found by loads of folks looking for the type of content you write about or deliver in many different ways. This website is just the help some people are looking for to show them how to do the things they see on other websites using the WordPress platform, I’ve just read somewhere that WordPress 3.1 is being downloaded at a rate of about 4 downloads / second!

As you can see hopefully, from the video I’ve placed above, you can embed these videos directly into your own website to help your visitors better understand the discussion you are presenting or if you want to show them easily how-to do a specific thing with WordPress.

This is more or less the same as copying a video from YouTube and embedding it in your website, but with a little different sharing choices.

This video website will be extremely useful for those who are just starting out with WordPress and also those more familiar with it too.

Take a look for yourself, you may be pleasantly surprised by what you find there!

Joining The Internet Revolution Can Be Done At Any Age

One of the really great things about the internet is that age really is no barrier. People of all ages are setting up their own websites or blogs and there are even eighty and ninety year olds who spend time online on a regular basis. This type of technology does not exclude anyone and the great thing is that it has given a voice to people who previously were never heard. As long as you can provide entertainment, there is no factor with what age you are as the internet is the ideal equaliser. People who were adults when Andy Warhol claimed that everyone would be famous for five minutes are now finding the truth in this.

But for many older people, technology is not exactly something they are comfortable with. Because a lot of them hear about things such as viruses or identity theft, they feel that they don’t want to venture into this world as they are too old to get to grips with it. However, for those of us who do use this technology, we know that these risks are often exaggerated by the media and the benefits far outweigh any of these risks. Some people just won’t be convinced that the internet can be used by anyone even though it is true. But those who do give it a go will discover a whole new world.

The online revolution is claiming more and more senior citizens and this is putting a whole new spin on how we view growing old. We can now see that it is possible to be productive for years longer than we ever imagined. There are actually many sixty year olds who are only just beginning to discover their creative side. The internet becomes the best place for them to display their talents once they have discovered their flair. The internet really gives so many people pleasure these days especially as age is no barrier.

As more and more homes today are becoming more computer orientated, many people often find they need some sort of help when issues may arise, for example printer help. And these are not the only issues as network problems can also be a major issue. PC security can also be a headache for some home pc users.

WordPress has evolved

WordPress has evolved and is now in 3.0 for 2010 and is called “Thelonious”, there are many changes to be looked at, especially if you are already a WordPress User! If not, then see why you should be using it.

The most important change that you will want to know about is that of the default theme. It has been redesigned and it’s not some plain old design like the previous Kubrick Theme, no this new theme looks and feels new and that’s probably why it’s called 2010 and also to keep the design fresh it will be more imbarassing to have the 2010 Theme running on a blog when it is 2015. There should be a new default theme every year from now on.

You can now run one blog with WordPress or 100 or 1000 or as many as you wish from this one interface, because of the integration of WordPress and MU or multi-user, it is commonly used for where it serves many millions of hits on many millions of blogs every day, previously a plugin, it is now built-in.

They have integrated the custom header to work on each post or page, so that now you can have a new and different header image on every post or page that you create, cool! Your background can now be customised to have an image or plain colour and also have it centered or tiled.

Menus have been redesigned and now actually dropdown, the no.1 requested feature for a CMS theme. The menus are also able to be moved around where you want them to be with the introduction of the Menu Editor.

Another New feature is they have added custom post tables, introduced to let users create custom elements for each post like, Podcasts, Chats, Video and of course Photos and maybe Quotes; see – to find the lowdown on this cool feature.

Inside the post editor there is the added feature of Shortlink editor, so that all you need to do is connect with your shortlink site, click a button and create your shortlinks on the fly within the post editor.

There is also something called Custom Taxonomies, what are they? They are a way to group things together like; posts, tags, names, categories, etc…

Finally, You can now Post by eMail which was only available on before. So, loaded with this cool information I have resolved to “Upgrade to WordPress 3.0” and with a little determination and available time I should have the

upgrade completed within a week. I must make sure that I have the time to complete the change-over and make all my BACKUPS, so just in case I make a blunder or my browser crashes or some other unexpected bug comes along, I’ll have time to deal with it there and then.

Watch the videos below to get a better understanding and more detailed look at what WP3.0 has to offer,

the first video is just over 3 min. and the second is the 2010 State of the Word speech at WordCamp San Francisco featuring Matt Mullenweg and is almost 1:15 min.,  so you can just let it load and then skip through if you are short on time or play it and listen to it while you are browsing.

Thelonious is what I’ve been waiting for, it encompasses all that I could have asked for in a Blog/CMS platform and more. See what you think and let me know your comments on weather or not you agree.

How to Blog So Your Internet Marketing Business Brings in More Money

If you incorporate blogging into your business you will benefit from it. There are a lot of bloggers but they donâ€t know how to explain it to the average person. They canâ€t break it down to the average person because they donâ€t know how to teach. At first, you will be intimidated and want to give up or donâ€t even start at all. The good news is that, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. Here are some tips to use along with your blogging that will make your business strategy even more powerful.

Interact with your blogging community. Readers pay attention to things like how much you interact on your own blog. People are looking for useful information and entertainment while on the internet so donâ€t expect them to contribute to your blog if you wonâ€t even acknowledge them. You do not have to respond to each comment as it is left on your site but it is important that you participate in any conversation that happens in your comments section. Regular participation will show even the quickest passer-by that you are involved in your site and that you care about the people who take the time to contribute.

Allowing your visitors to sign-up to receive your blog posts by email is another way to keep in touch. This is similar to the process of collecting email addresses in order to send out a newsletter. This is much simpler than a newsletter; the only thing that you will be doing is delivering your new posts to their email address. This technique will make it seem like you are going out of your way to accommodate to your readers.

Send an email to visitors that left a comment on your blog. The easiest way to do this is to have a service or program that does it automatically after a comment is posted to your blog. Incorporating a small touch of personalization will work wonders. A You get to flex your creativity when itâ€s time to choose a theme for your blog. If you want a custom theme for your blog, there are plenty of companies happy to charge you a fee to create one for you. If you prefer to get your blog started completely free, youâ€re able to choose between millions of free themes available for download.

Itâ€s easy to find a free template or theme to suit you with so many of them available. If you want a custom built blog, but donâ€t want to pay for it, why not download a free theme and tweak the code a little so it appears unique?

Put up an Opt-In form that your readers can use to give you their e-mail addresses. This is a different technique than sending posts you add to your blog to them: this one allows you to contact them directly and provide useful information or ideas, to survey them, give advice , and a lot more.

You must understand that there are millions of people who turn to the internet in search of answers that they want for whatever reason; you can be the one that helps them solve their problem or answer their question. Furthermore, email marketing can help you grow your business faster than almost anything else available.

There is an infinite amount of ways to sell products and services over the internet. Blogging is just one medium through which you can endear yourself to your prospective buyers and turn a casual viewer into a regular purchaser of your products. Blogging is one of the easiest methods to use to sell online. By following the few tips we provided your blog will be on its way to seeing more profits.Additional Resources:

3 simple steps to install WordPress

Would you like to have your very own profitable blog? How about a blog that only takes 3 simple steps to install, requires No Technical Knowledge and once you done with your clicks – fully configured and customized!?

I’m going to show you how to get this set-up in a very short time frame using an installer made for you that is even easier than using the cpanel install method on most servers.   Do you have 4 minutes to install a fully customized and Web 2.0 enabled WordPress blog? If the answer is yes and you especially don’t want to pay someone to do it for you then keep reading…

I was a bit skeptical myself until I had a chance to try it out personally. It is really a no-sweat process of uploading one file, editing one file and then filling a few blanks on a web form and choosing What Niche you would like to Dominate! But don’t be put off by what may end up sounding a little hyped, it just appears that way on the surface and when you see for yourself when you watch the short video below, it really is that easy!

Get Your Free Installer Here

This entire product is based on the  knowledge and experience of a very successful blogger who is been holding almost the entire first page of Google results for his chosen (and very competitive) keywords for over a year!
All his knowledge and experience were turned into complete Video Tutorials where he guides you step-by-step and makes it a complete no-brainer to install, even if you never created a single page on the Internet!
Add to the fact that a custom script does the full blog configuration and customization based on a few answers you provide on web page and you got a clear winner. You will see in the video how easy it is to create your own database for the blog, even if have NEVER done it before, simple!

But you really must watch the video above that shows you the entire process to understand just how simple it is, I suggest you do it now and make taking action a quality you keep using over and over. Get Your Free Installer Here

Donâ€t forget this one important thing – it is very affordable. I was floored when I saw the upgrade price and my finger was clicking that order button before I even knew it!
And here is the catch (I MUST share it with you, itâ€s that important) – on your first login ONLY you will be provided with an option to upgrade. Please, do not blindly click “no thanks” as it is truly the only time you will see this incredible deal. This step is Totally your choice, but by upgrading you will gain many extras.

If by chance you don’t yet have a host for a website, then there are loads of choices out there to choose from and if you have no experience of website hosting then you may be tempted to go down the route of the FREE HOSTS, and you are again provided with loads of choice here. There is one Major Problem with Free Hosts and that is I have not found one that offers free databases with the hosting. You will need to use a database to set-up any WordPress blog.

I will not go into the debate of which host is better than the others, only to say that the one I use is better than any other I have EVER used and this is the fourth host I have used since starting online in 1998. That said, Hosting have Always answered every single support question that I have had within minutes of my asking and not just to say “Hi, we got your request for support…”, but actually had some concrete action to take to resolve my problem or query! You can even get a great discount by using my special Coupon Code: 7thDwarf when you sign-up!

The people at Expert WordPress suggest using Hostgator and you can as I said before choose which host you like, but I cannot give you a review of them personally.

So, if you have been bitten by the Blog Bug and you can see how easy and fast you can be up and running, just download the Expert WordPress Installer then watch the video again to be able to follow along while you go through the set-up, stopping at each step and maybe rewinding to make sure you’ve done it right (like me!) and before you know it You’re Done!
