An increasing number of teens and businesses run blogs on several social media websites. In fact, some of the webs most influential voices now belong to bloggers as young as 13.
Blogs created by teenagers come from all over the world and can attract hundreds, or even thousands of readers a day. They can generate advertising revenue through sponsorship, and their creators become stars when they are brought to attention by the mainstream media. Both adults and businesses are desperate to view inside perspectives from teenagers. Somewhere out there could be the new big thing, and its almost certainly being dreamed up by a bunch of teenagers.
Furthermore, there might only be a few web design tutorials only using outdated techniques. There are few thorough classes on web design that are taught at schools and it seems impossible to start blogs without reading thousands of code snippets on hundreds of websites. In short, many think that starting a website is very intimidating and time consuming due to the immense coding and web designing skills needed.
In addition, the process seems confusing due to there being so many options available. Although these worries may have been true back in the early 2000s, in recent years, things have significantly changed, and starting a blog isn’t as complicated or expensive as one may think. Many Content Management Systems, or CMS’s, have already started to dominate the entire web development industry because they run websites without the need for hand coding.
One CMS platform, called WordPress, runs over 75 million websites, making up around 20% of all websites and over 60% of all CMS-related websites. With WordPress, one does not need to know programming at all to start a blog. Thus, more and more people with only basic computer skills are starting their own blog webpages and becoming famous in their respective fields, even having life changing stories to tell.This easy to follow, step-by-step guide is written to help users by getting rid of any confusion, providing crucial information, and best of all, eliminating the need for coding skills.
Only very basic and well-known computer skills are required. Our underlying goal is to help you easily build a blog and have it ready to go in under 30 minutes.Be aware that WordPress does not allow children under 13 to use their program for strict safety and security concerns. Be sure to consult a parent and exercise safety and security.We started a charitable youth organization called CodeBytes recently (see our website: www.code-usa.org), which we use to reach out to less fortunate children through computer science education.
Our rationale is to not just teach coding skills, but to also interest children in pursuing knowledge and learning skills. Thus, we may help them do better in school and have a better future. We believe we can change people’s lives little by little by working together. In order to further teach kids coding and web design in a simple and quick fashion, we have developed this easy to follow, step-by-step guide. The basic goal of writing this book was to raise money so that we could buy more computers and devices for more kids. We want to thank you for purchasing our book and helping these kids have a better future.
