Stuck Trying to Learn WordPress? WPBeginner Offers Tutorials and Tips

At BlogWorld and New Media Expo 2012 I had the opportunity to interview one of the speakers, Syed Balkhi, President of Awesome Motive Inc., about the importance of having a blog. His company owns WPBeginner, a free WordPress resource site, providing tips and tutorials for users of the WordPress content management platform. In my last post, I discussed the offerings of several exhibitors at BlogWorld.  This video of our conversation was taped at the SocialChorus Interview Lounge in the exhibit area. Below the video is a follow-up interview I conducted with Syed by email.

A Review of BlogWorld 2012 Exhibitors

I visited the second annual BlogWorld and New Media Expo when it was held earlier this month New York’s Javits Center

"Chris Brogan Copyblogger "

Jeannette and Chris Brogan

I registered for the Exhibits, as I did last year, to learn what’s new and helpful for bloggers or anyone interested in social media. As an extra bonus I had my photo taken with one of my heroes, Chris Brogan, founder of Human Business Works.

I also bought his book Google+ for Business. He deserves my support for all that I’ve learned from his posts.

These are reviews of only a few exhibitors. I hope you find the information useful and suggest you do your own research. (BTW, I am not an affiliate of any of these companies). Click on the company name to visit their websites for more information. Here they are in alphabetical order: Read More→
