Creating a Blog with John Thornhill
How Not to create a Blog-See Below!
I’m taking a 16 week course from John Thornhill learning how to really set up a WordPress “Blog”.
This was originally written on Sept 15, 2011, It is now October 7, 2012 and I’m Starting Over!!!!
I’m now on week two, setting up a Blog and I ‘m having a problem.
Update…over a year has gone by. Must admit I got distracted with the “Push Button Junk”….my computer hard drive is overloaded with JUNK.
So I stopped following my plan…got into buying those Make $5,000 a day in 30 minutes a week on your laptop at the beach! Ha!
My Complaint above on week two was not the reason I quit!
John’s videos shows WordPress the way it was about two years ago.. There is an update with the video that explains that WordPress moved the menu to scroll down the left side of the page instead of across the top….not a biggie, the inside workings are still the same….I’m working through it.
Learning some things I never knew about WordPress.
We are now into setting up and using categories.
I have about ten sites and not one of them have anything in the categories other than the WordPress links mostly because I was afraid to try.
The setting up the Blog with links etc. is interesting. Not sure yet how it works. I set up some links in the blog rather than using the menu on the left and amazingly some appeared on the page when I clicked preview to look.
Hmmmm….wonder where those other two went? I’m still at it.
See comments below…Michael Slater another of those Knowledgeable Sharing Whizzes came by and told me, Categories don’t show up until they have something in them…so there!
Visited the self help and coaching blog which is like the break room at work…everybody puts in their two cents right or wrong.
I still have two categories I set up that don’t appear when I “visit” the site.
They are there in the dashboard, but not on the page. Well, I don’t really have a page yet…this is it, still being worked on. I’ll publish now, can change it later or make a post to continue this conversation… (I pulled this off and put it in Drafts so I could Update things a little.)
Well, I’m published, but still at it. This is the most helpful course I have ever lucked on even if some of the videos have a different looking WordPress.
I go and read in the coaching help forum where other students are also working through the program. A real community for a change.
This really nice guy Sergio Felix who has an awesome blog at Marketing With Sergio came by and made a comment on the another post I made about this class!
He is also taking this course and likes to check out what other members are doing!
Bet if he had it to do over, he would just LOOK and leave. I bug him endlessly for information and help…which he ALWAYS graciously gives. If you go, read his about page…his mind is an encyclopedia filled with all that techie stuff that for me is hard to understand!
Some of the members in the Coaching Class already have nice blogs and sites but say they feel the need for more understanding of WordPress and how to really use it.
If you would like to join me you can click on the link below and get a great bargain….John Thornhill’s $497.00 16 weeks of coaching for an unbelievable $19.99. I checked several other places and it is still listed at a much higher price.
No links below or above, (not true Sergio said leave a link to John ) but for the rest, I am creating a Resource page and putting all the commercials there…so if you find something interesting navigate over there and find it.
I’m behind in my lessons.
Life sometimes interferes, guess I’m like most people, it is more fun to post what you want, instead of posting what you should.
I Have a lot of gaudy stuff added on here, but I’m more conservative at my other site.
This one is sort of FUN! Come have fun and Learn what you need to know to be able to Really set up a Blog to earn Money and help others at the same time by giving out some good information they can use!
One thing I didn’t mention is how you end up learning about Marketing John’s way…it is included not as “Module” but more as a moral principle..be honest, be helpful and you can succeed.

Not. Links are gone, except the one above to John Thornhill, for anything else go to the Resource Page that I am creating.
There is another post that came after this one that I need to update. Think I’d better go do my Resource page next, plus go back to school and learn to spell!
I Keep leaving that second C out of encyclopedia and making the c in resource into an s…
I love comments…good or bad (mostly good!) so take a second and do a LIKE or Comment.
