Find Your Writing Niche: WordPress and Patrick “Pat” Haggerty

Patrick “Pat” Haggerty, Teacher and Workshop Leader

WordPress makes sense when Patrick “Pat” Haggerty explains it.

This teacher/workshop leader knows the details, understands the nuances and helps students problem-solve.  He starts from the beginning and assists students in choosing a theme, working out the kinks and streamlining the final result.

I hired a firm to set the basics for my Web site using WordPress, but I had control of the design, wrote all the copy and provided all the pictures. Still there were gaps, features I didn’t understand, so I took the four-week online course Pat Haggerty teaches, WordPress 101, through Heart of Carolina Romance Writers.

Pat is a friendly sort, responds to inquiries and gets the answers to questions you ask. The class was worth the time and money because what I learned is invaluable: the facets of this fascinating “content management system” and what it entails.  I schedule blog posts, add to the media library, answer comments readers leave and feel comfortable doing it.

Pat also teaches “Writing with Scrivener” and is doing a four-article blog series on WordPress at You’ll get them when you type his name in the search box.

You can contact him for his teaching schedule at and learn more about him at his Facebook page:

I published three ebooks in 2020: Women and Adversity, Honoring 23 Black Women; Women and Adversity, Recognizing 23 Notable Mothers; and Women and Adversity, Saluting 23 Faithful Suffragists to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. These books are meant to be study guides for all students from grade school through college to help in choosing topics for assignments and to learn more about these noteworthy women. Go to, and to learn more.
