    Looking for advice.

    I use Bluehost and have a domain name. I did the easy install for WordPress, but didn’t get to see any of those questions on Jaime’s video (other than adds for Mojo themes). When I go to my WordPress.org site, there is no website, only the WordPress blog. I was not presented with a simple website template like the one in the video.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks very much.

    Ok that all looks fine, that’s how the latest version of wordpress looks when you first install it.

    your login is http://www.alexisbonavitacola.com/wp-admin

    Let me know if that makes sense,

    Thanks for checking. But, I was confused by the fact this is a blog not a website and what I want to create is a website. In your first video, you show a simple website that, I assumed, is what I should be looking for as well. But, that’s not what my page looks like at all. How do I switch from a blog format to a website?

    Or, should I just proceed with the videos?

    Hi Alexis,

    Yep just go through the WordPress Essentials videos. These show you how to turn wordpress from a blog into a website :)

    We are just about to update the Essential video tutorial to WordPress 4.0 so don’t worry if the interface looks slightly different in the videos. The core functionality is the same.

    Any problems, let me know,

    Great!!!! Whew – I feel so much better now :). And I appreciate the personalized service. I just wish that I didn’t live in the US and that I had the opportunity to attend one of your one-day trainings.

    Ever think of videoing one of those trainings so we could see this process? Just an idea.

    Jaime,

    I’ve been in education for 18 years – I always think like a teacher! How could we help others learn is always my motto.
