Building a WordPress Blog People Want to Read

At the most recent Seattle WordPress Meetup, I won a door prize — this book, Building a WordPress Blog People Want to Read by Scott McNulty.

The title of this book made me believe that this would be a book about creating more interesting and valuable content for WordPress Blogs. However, the real focus of this book is how to set up and manage a WordPress site. The book covers how to install WordPress; using the dashboard for basic site maintenance; creating blog posts and pages; using links, categories and tags; and working with plugins, widgets and themes.

Overall, Building a WordPress Blog People Want to Read is a good introduction to WordPress. For someone who is starting their first WordPress blog/site and wants to become more familiar with the various features that WordPress offers, this would be a good book to start with. I know a few of my clients may want to read this book.
