Thank you for taking my ‘Manage your own WordPress Website’ class and working with me to create your own site, it has been such a pleasure! Remember to take your time and be patient with yourself. I find taking a short walk or going out for a latte goes a long way in helping your brain focus on new skills. Creating a website is an artistic endeavor and requires a bit of time to learn. Hopefully, I have given you what you need to begin, but don’t be afraid to email with a question.
