Happy to announce the release of my latest project for Wiley Publishing. The For Dummies division is launching a new series called “…In A Day For Dummies” which are short e-books geared toward helping you learn a new skill “in a day”. Wiley Publishing decided to pilot this new series with books on WordPress since it’s such a damn popular service (can ya blame them??) and because the WordPress service seems to lend itself to this type of publication.
Launch a WordPress.Com Blog In A Day For Dummies is a 96-page e-book with the goal of getting you from start to launch on the WordPress.com hosted service. WordPress is among the most popular blogging platforms. If you’re ready to start your WordPress blog, this handy e-book will get you going. It gets right to the point, showing you how to create a WordPress.com account, navigate WordPress.com and use the Dashboard, customize blog settings, use themes, organize your blog, and dress it up with widgets and upgrades. A special link to dummies.com provides additional information, including video tutorials that boost your blog IQ. Read it today and have your blog up and running tomorrow!
This highly focused e-book gives you the straight line on setting up a blog using WordPress.com
- Walks you through creating your account, navigating WordPress.com and using the Dashboard, choosing a theme for your blog, customizing settings, and organizing your blog by categories

Just a fun little project to do in between complete re-writes of my WordPress For Dummies for its 5th Edition (due out in November) and my WordPress All In One for its 2nd edition (due out in Jan 2013). Writing on those two books commences this summer – so if you see me scowling, throw me a smile!
