Coming soon: first subscriber bonus!

I am working on this site’s first subscriber bonus, which should be finished this week. It’s going to be a complete guide to setting up your own website with WordPress and will include all the steps from getting your own domain name to customizing your WordPress installation.

Many of the ebooks on Amazon with this information sell in the $8-10 range, but this guide will be absolutely FREE! All you have to do is enter your email address into the “Subscribe” widget, and you’ll be the first to get it when it comes out!

Also, if there’s a particular topic you’d like to see covered in this guide or you have suggestions for future material, let me know in the comments! After all, this guide is for you, not me.
