WordPress Track

Hi, my goal is to setup a blog which is quite detailed. I am giving myself two three months to complete it which i think is reasonable time frame. I would like to know which is the best way to go. WordPress track or one of the modules from the library.

I have a fair amonth HTML, CSS, experience alreaday. I also am quite handy with Gimp image editor. But zero PHP experience.

I would love to learn from ground up, but also like to get hit the ground running.

I appreciate your answers.

Slavash, if this is your goal:

"to setup a blog which is quite detailed"

Then the WordPress track is what you're looking for.

Do the "How to make a Wordpress Blog" course

With your previous knowledge and this course you can easily create a blog in much less than 3 months

Then you can complete the track if you want but with those things you are good to go!


Thank you to Franco and James for your answers.

I agree with the other guys. Go with WordPress. With your HTML and CSS experience you should be able to create a theme to your liking and get any widgets/plugins up and running pretty quickly.

Three months should be plenty of time. IMO you can get a pretty robust WordPress site up in less than a week if you have to.
