AlbumArt-BuildingAWebsitePro-1400x1400-full-rezPodcast Episode Overview

In this episode of Building a Website Pro, we get to the core of WordPress plugins. With over 27,000+ plugins in the WordPress.org database alone (and growing), it’s easy to get lost in analysis paralysis in terms of what to actually install in your WordPress website.

AlbumArt-BuildingAWebsitePro-1400x1400-full-rezPodcast Episode Overview

In this second episode of the Building a Website Pro podcast, I start our journey together in building a website. And where does that journey begin? It begins with being certain with yourself what the purpose is for your website and then choosing a domain name (e.g. YourWebsiteDomain.com).

You might love kitty cats and decide to start a website about them… but what is your goal for that website? Will it just be a hobby website with a glutinous array of pictures of you with your cats?
