Help From WordPress

Dr. Tanya(Salted Caramel) is back with the next installment in all things blogging with Blogging Insights #39

In this installment, she asks our experience(s) using WordPress tutorials or help from WordPress whe getting started back in the beginning.

Once you make a WordPress account and launch your blog, you become entitled to some WordPress features. Some of these work on the free plan while others can only be accessed on the paid WordPress plans. Today we discuss their usefulness or otherwise.

TODAY’S QUESTIONS

How helpful did you find the WordPress tutorials on blogging?

Did you contact the WordPress support staff (Happiness Engineers), if that was included in your plan, and what was your experience with them?

Here’s what I remember..

How helpful did you find the WordPress tutorials on blogging?

When I signed up back in the summer of 2016, I got started using the free plam.

I remember signing up for some weekly email things in kind of a online class format. But, since that was over fours years ago, remembering what they were on has sadly slipped away from the recesses of my past memories.

Overall, I do think they were helpful at that time.

Like many, I came into the WordPress world with no knowledge at all on how to set a blog or the finer details of working with the various blog attributes contained in the WordPress platform.

So, they did help to some degree.

Did you contact the WordPress support staff (Happiness Engineers), if that was included in your plan, and what was your experience with them?

Nope. Don’t think so.

Never heard of the phrase “Happiness Engineers” until now.

As I mentioned in Blogging Insights #38(To Tech or Not To Tech), I found the overall process of setting up my blog reasonably straightforward and now four years later running and maintaining it on a daily basis, pretty much the same – straightforward.

I don’t make many changes to the format or look of it, other than changing and mixing up the gallery of pictures on the sidebar from time to time. As well, I may change up the header photo, if and when I remember. Which happens perhaps two or three times a year.

A continued big shoutout and thanks to Dr. Tanya(Salted Caramel) for her neverending work on this “Blogging Insights Series” and specifically looking at “WordPress tutorials and WordPress support.”
