The narrator was very clear and easy to understand

The author guides you through the ins and outs of using Wordpress.
He goes into the subject of blog hosting and delves into:
How to build your Blog
Several different blog platforms
How to purchase a domain
How to understand hosting
And many other hints to help you ease into blogging.
He lets you know how to install Wordpress (best of all it's free) and informs you about the word press community, in case you need any help.
He gives you a lot of information on how to create a blog store, membership gallery, and photography.
His advice on Wordpress is that it's the easiest platform to use and it secures high-quality websites. He then gives you two options for Wordpress explaining the pros and cons of each so that you can decide which one would benefit you.
The author goes into how to purchase a domain and hosting and how to protect your domain and hosting. I wish he was less pushy on hosting and more informative on other companies equally. (it felt a bit one sided) Also, the chapters do not match the audio.

This audio is full of a lot of good information for those that are interested in starting a blog/site. Best idea is to purchase the book for your home library since you will need to refresh your memory from time to time. (there is a lot to cover on blogging)
Whispersync would come in super handy with this book.
The narrator was a good choice for this book. He was clear, easy to follow and sounds like someone who is well versed on the subject.
