Blogging lessons & Consultations

I offer WordPress blog lessons and consultations in the Cape Town area and online, via skype as well. I started blogging in 2009 and have a wealth of blogging experience. I started off using Blogger but now specialise in WordPress.

I have designed many WordPress blogs and websites so I also have an in depth knowledge of what goes into setting up a blog and how to make it look unique.

If you want all the no-nonsense, essential information delivered straight to you, then please get in touch for a one-on-one lesson.

Myself and Kathryn from Becoming You host Blog Boot Camp Workshops from time to time. View more info here.
