If you’ve ever wanted to start a blog and don’t know where to start, I’ve got a solution for you. My podcasting co-host, Kreg Steppe, and I have just completed work on “Sams Teach Yourself WordPress in 10 Minutes“. Look for it on store shelves in March (2010). However, you can order it today.
I feel truly blessed to have been given an opportunity to write this book. It was challenging from the get-go. Having experienced a re-write (on a generous schedule) two years ago, this was challenging from a shorter time line. We had six weeks to get the original content completed, then quick turnaround on the author edits. Once those were done we still had to review the PDFs for final markup. To say I’m familiar with the material would be a bit of an understatement.
Having done this book from scratch has certainly helped me with my writing. Already I’m noticing a greater challenge producing the Gmail Podcast. I hope it reflects in the quality of the content in the latest shows.
So what’s next? A companion podcast. Kreg and I are working on the setup (using WordPress of course). Kreg and I will get in to more topics that we couldn’t delve in to in the book (new and useful plugins, latest news, in-depth topics, and more.) Watch this space for more information on the upcoming “WordPress in 10 Minutes in 10 Minutes Podcast“.
