Event: WordPress 101 Workshop (7/15/17)

Grow Local is hosting a special workshop outlining the basics of WordPress, a free and easy-to-use blog and website-building service. This will take place at MatchBOX Coworking Studio, on Saturday, July 15, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

This workshop will cover the basics of setting up a WordPress site and uploading/managing content. We will go over how to:

  • Set up an account
  • Choose a useful design template
  • Upload documents and photos
  • Create pages and posts for content
  • Manage and edit content

We are making this available to members of GrowLocal for free and for non-members for only $10. Any money we make on the workshop will go toward paying the annual fee for our own WordPress website.

NOTE: Please bring a laptop to this workshop so that you can work through each of these tasks and receive individualized help (if you have questions) at the end of the session.

RSVP: Please RSVP to as soon as possible: slots are limited to 25 participants!
