WordPress School with Lorelle VanFossen
Since January 2015, I’ve joined the WordPress School run by Lorelle VanFossen, a WordPress enthusiast / evangelist / expert. Lorelle is the best WordPress teacher, the most altruistic, and the most empathetic to the needs of learners of all levels.
I hope you could join Lorelle’s WordPress School, so that we could all learn together to blog better with WordPress. Lorelle will be teaching WordPress from the inside out.
Lorelle on WordPress
When I’m stuck on WordPress, or when I want to improve on my blogging knowledge and writing skills, I would consult Lorelle on WordPress. Lorelle is my fairy blogmother, and Queen on WordPress. Her advice and tips are always useful. Her posts are insightful and thought provoking. She educates me how to use WordPress effectively and to challenge myself, in words and in my thinking. Lorelle makes WordPress a wonderful place to be.
Check out Lorelle’s Blog Exercises. She sets out small tasks for you to achieve regularly. Some tasks are more challenging than others, but they prepare you to be a more rounded, well-equipped blogger.
Lorelle wrote passionately how WordPress has changed her life, and our lives.
I love Lorelle. Lorelle changes my life. She makes me work pretty hard. In Lorelle’s word, “The world favors persistence”. Her passion for blogging shines through. You should read her post, Keep the Faith.
One Cool Site Blogging Tips
Through Lorelle on WordPress, I got to know One Cool Site, with a cool username called timethief. timethief is passionate about sharing WordPress blogging tips. She makes you realise that you and I can always improve a little bit everyday with our blogging. Blogging is a journey; it’s not static. Her bite-size writing is very accessible.
Every time when I find a tip or two from timethief, I’ll smile. Each tiny self-improvement reminds me of Neil Armstrong’s saying, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” I know it’s a cliché, and I’m exaggerating quite a bit, but you get my feeling.
I also love using these tools
1) Tagxedo, word cloud with style: It’s simply the best.
2) Wordle: Beautiful and powerful.
4) Creating Print & PDF button through Printfriendly.
“PrintFriendly cleans and formats web pages for perfect print experience. PrintFriendly removes Ads, Navigation and web page junk, so you save paper and ink when you print. It’s free and easy to use. Perfect to use at home, the office, or whenever you need to print a web page.” From Printfriendly website.
5) I created an ebook with the help from PDF Converter. It converted my Word document into a professional looking pdf format. More importantly, it has kept all my hyperlinks.
