More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog

Both my husband and I read this book to get different opinions. My husband is a very technical software product manager and I am a photographer. So you have a more savvy technical-oriented reader and a complete neophyte.

I had used Wordpress to set up a blogsite for my company earlier in the year. As easy as Wordpress is, it can still be challenging and so I was hoping this book will make the next update project easier

Lots of little tweaks to my blog even though it was already self-hosted and I learned how to fix somethings if they broke and enjoy some other perks. Learning tricks I never thought possible was fantastic was an added bonus. Playing along with the online DVD made this book not only a great read but interactive so I didn't need to practice on my own blog with the possibility of breaking it.

It would be worth adding to my shelf if I wasn't afraid information changes so fast.
Overall, this is an okay guide on how to use WordPress, but there were specific things I was looking for that this book was not able to answer. It's fine for those seeking an introduction to WordPress, but not for those who are looking for a reference book on WP. ...more

The books is not for me right now. Instead, I am checking out Typepad online for a way to write blogs in the future and have them published online.

DO NOT expect to be able to set up WordPress self-install with this book. I was disappointed about that, but the rest of the information in here is really valuable.
