Building an Author Website Step Six: Video Review

Building an Author WebsiteFor a super quick review of what we’ve covered so far in “Building an Author Website” steps one through five, here’s a video created by Daniel Piechnick, a professional web designer and trainer.

In less than ten minutes, he’ll explain

  • Domain Name
  • Web Hosting
  • WordPress

He’ll then take you step-by-step from purchasing your domain name through installing and logging in to your WordPress website.

The only difference between  Daniel’s steps and mine is that he uses Fat Cow instead of Blue Host as a web host and he uses one of the free WordPress.org themes called Bold R Lite instead of BookSnapper, which, for a small fee, is customized especially for authors.

He also gets a bit ahead of what I’ve covered so far by taking you through a few steps in customizing your site. Don’t worry, we’ll get to selecting your theme, customizing your site, and writing your first blog post later. Plus much more.

I suspect that Daniel’s video reinforced all the steps and decisions you’ve made so far.

If not, watch the video a second time and a third. It’s only 6.4 minutes after all.

Another video you might find helpful is WordPress for Beginners. In ten minutes, it will explain everything you need to know about WordPress.
