As an independent publisher, it’s not easy to compete with the giant chains and commercial big-budget names, so I try to get creative and post about my work wherever it makes sense to do so. And my Tumblr account certainly qualifies for this, so without further ado..
I’m stoked to announce my 3rd book, The Tao of WordPress, which is a complete guide for beginners, students, admins, and basically anyone who uses WordPress and wants to learn how to get the most from it. The book starts at the beginning with choosing the right software, hosting, and domain, and then proceeds through installation, configuration, and customization. The book also includes chapters on Plugins, Themes, Security, SEO, and optimizing performance. There’s also a meaty chapter packed full of sweet WP techniques, plus a starter template theme that’s used in examples throughout the book.
The Tao of WordPress is basically the sum of my 8+ years working with WordPress all boiled down and streamlined into a beautiful, simplified guide that focuses on exactly what you need to know to build awesome sites and succeed on the Web.
