The 'Dirty Secret' of book publishing is "It's Book Publishing, not Book Promoting". Your publisher, if you have one, prints your book,makes sure it meets certain publishing standards, gets it into book stores and onto a few online ecommerce sites, but they do very little in promoting your book, unless you are extremely popular and famous.

This means you have to do the heavy lifting of making your book popular.

    • Planning Your Site

      Before you begin the process of creating your blog or website, there are a number of things you need to consider. Things like your purpose, your message, your content, your customer, etc. This Lecture details all the things you should consider before you begin.

    • Hosting & Domain Considerations

      Before you can create a blog or website, you must decide where to host your site and what domain name would be best suited for your. There are free WordPress hosting options out there, but most lack support and don’t give you the array of options you get with a professionally hosted WordPress system, which you can get for just a few dollars a month. This lecture will walk you through the things you should consider before registering a domain name and choosing a host for your site.

    • Bluehost Account Setup

      As mentioned in the previous video, you can host your WordPress blog wherever you like. I personally use and recommend Bluehost (I’m a customer and an affiliate). This lecture details setting up a new Bluehost hosting account. If you are not using Bluehost to host your WordPress blog, you can proceed to the lecture “Login To WordPress” now.

    • Bluehost WordPress Installation

      This video details installing WordPress in a Bluehost account. If you are not using Bluehost to host your WordPress blog, please refer to your hosting system’s help files to install WordPress. The process should be very similar to what’s shown here.

    • Login To WordPress

      Once you have your hosting account established and WordPress installed, login to your WordPress system using the user name and password you established at sign up. Your hosting company should have sent you an email with this information. If not, contact them directly.

    • Posts vs Pages

      There are two ways to add content to your new blog or website. You can add Posts or Pages. This lecture explains the similarities and differences between the two.

    • Posts - Part 1

      One of the great things about WordPress is how easy you can add new content to your blog or website. If you’re doing a blog with regular updates, you will do so by adding a new Post. This lecture teaches you how to add, edit, and delete Posts
