Find Your Writing Niche: WordPress and Patrick “Pat” Haggerty
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 http://romanceuniversity.org. You’ll get them when you type his name in the search box.
