I want to recommend to young bloggers not to buy a wordpress how-to book. It’s a waste of money. I bought a wordpress book and a movable type book back in July of 2007 and the only timed i thumbed through it was at Borders. It’s much easier to learn wordpress by doing, and by searching on the internet for questions you may have. The wordpress support forum is good but sometimes the answers aren’t there. You just need to learn how to search for your answers. It might take 10 mins to find the answer. The book is too general anyway. If you can’t find the answer on the World Wide Web, you certain won’t find the answer in a 300 page book. I wished i still had my $60.99. I could start 6 more blogs with that money. Or i could get some more stocking stuffer for Christmas.
If you’ve already bought a how to book,(its ok rookie mistake-i did the same thing) go to half dot com Click here
and sell it. At least get half of your money back. Don’t leave it on your shelf to collect dust. Honestly, you’re not going to read it.
