Reference material and guides
The session held at the Courtauld was constructed around WordPress’ own guide to blogging, which may be found here. It covers all the steps including: registering your blog, using the dashboard, moderating comments, themes and widgets and mobile blogging.
WordPress also run a support site here.
There are lots of guides to blogging available online or in print or eBook form. Blogging for Creatives is a personal favourite, and might help you decide whether your work is best served through WordPress or another blogging medium such as Tumblr.
We also presented some research-related blogs in the first session by way of inspiration:
The Hans Ewoth Research Project (a research-related blog created by Hope Walker, a current Courtauld MPhil / PhD student)
