Earlier this month, I wrote a post about the birth of my blog. Well, since then I’ve been doing some thinking—and I remembered when I first started to blog for another online project 18 months ago. Back then, I knew nothing about how to set up a blog, customize it and even competently write a post!
Over time, I learned the skills necessary to hand-code CSS, and read a great deal about many aspects of blogging. One thing I can tell you is this—there was a lot of research involved—and I had to trawl many sites to get the information I required.
I always thought how great it would be if there was a series of blog posts, or tutorials, to give me an example of how another blogger set up their site. Sure, there are many articles out there on the web, but none of which were both a personal example of someone else’s experience.
For me, learning by an example is a great way to learn. Rather then reading tutorials regarding how things could be done—I love to read articles outlining real examples and techniques.
So, what I am aiming to do in this series of blog posts in to write the process of setting up my blog from scratch. I’m going to write them in a way that I would personally like to read a ‘tutorial’ myself. I invite you to travel on this journey with me—and I hope that I can either inspire you in some way or provide a good informative read.
I don’t know yet how many parts there will be in this series about WordPress customization, maybe it will go on and on, evolving with my site. Please let me know your thoughts about this series along the way…
