Back in 2007, when I started blogging, we all had to learn some technical things along the way. It was all brand new to me and I stumbled through it, learning as I went. Fast forward to today, 2016, and needless to say, everything has changed since then. I never did learn a lot about html. Only enough to make me dangerous, but I never really had the time or interest in delving into all things technical in blogging. If something breaks on my blog, then I hire a technical person with the know-how to fix it. I certainly don’t rely on my skills. And I really don’t want to learn all of that. I’d rather concentrate on the more fun and creative aspects of blogging.
But, learning about technical issues is certainly a good thing if you are a new blogger and want to know more about html, setting up a WordPress blog, coding, plugins, and more. My friend, Lesley, with Chaotically Creative has written an in-depth ebook about working on the technical side, called What the Tech. It’s a comprehensive look at behind the scenes of blogging and if you are new to this world, you may want to order this book, just to get an idea of what all blogging entails.
Lesley has it all covered in this 281 page ebook. I went through the book, all the way to the bottom, with much of it totally over my head. As I said, I know enough to be dangerous, but not enough to fix things. And my ole’ brain really doesn’t want to learn all this stuff, although it’s great to get into some of it if you are blogging.
I get many questions from folks wanting to start a blog, so I would totally recommend this to someone starting out who knows nothing about setting up a blog, or WordPress, or any of the technical things behind blogging. You definitely have to have some know-how of technical issues to blog and to run your blog from the backend of WordPress. I’m not a genius with this stuff, but know enough to do what I need to do to write and run my blog. The rest….I hire it out!
