Event Space Video: WordPress for Photographers


Blogging is a very popular pastime. It can be a purely personal method of digital communication, or it can be a powerful tool for promoting one’s business. And just as sophisticated as the whole concept of social media has become, so have the tools for creating the content. One of these is WordPress, a feature rich blog creation tool that is of particular interest to the photographer who wishes to share or promote their work.

In the almost two hour presentation, Chris Gampat takes us through the processing of creating a blog. From initially setting up WordPress, to creating a first post, creating categories and tags, through adjusting themes and customizing the appearance of the blog, the video is an excellent how-to tutorial. Later on he goes on to show how to make minor tweaks, how to link to other social media, and the setting up of discussion protocols.
