I’m not kidding. Blame the wine for the direction my life has taken because without it I would not be a WordPress Consultant today.
In 2007, after 15 years of print writing and publishing, I launched Tasting Room Confidential on Blogspot.com. Blogger.com is like training wheels for blogging and fills a lot of needs, but eventually I grew out of it. I just wanted more. More variety, more functionality and more control.
I wanted WordPress
In early 2010 – while working on a Master Certificate of Internet Marketing through the University of San Francisco – I took the plunge into WordPress. I can’t say it was always easy, teaching myself the way I did, but it was ultimately satisfying.
Learning more about WordPress made me want to do more.
I realized that WordPress is a lot like wine: you can never know everything because everything changes constantly. You could learn something new everyday - forever.
My first WordPress blog !
The designer in me
In 2011, I went pro by blogging here about blogging and designing sites for other people. Since then, I've created dozens of sites, and each one has taught me something new about WordPress
The biggest thing I learned is that WordPress is so intuitive and user friendly that people naturally want to play with it themselves. I realized what users need is someone to coach them on WordPress.
I became a WordPress Consultant and Tutor
I taught WordPress to some of my writer friends and discovered that I had a knack for training.
So I started a Meetup.com account called WordPress Workshop.
I work privately as a WordPress Consultant and tutor, helping business owners develop the techniques they need to build and manage their sites. And I love to evangelize!
