WordPress is the blogging software that I use for both my free blogs hosted on WordPress.com, and several self-hosted blogs that I own and maintain including this TechnoMaria blog.
Last September 2, 2008, I spoke at the Philippine Youth Congress for IT (Y4IT) 2008 about WordPress. Noting that my audience would be mostly college students who are non-bloggers, and have probably never heard of WordPress, I took the introduction route and decided to take the Introduction route so the students would not be intimidated by WordPress.
Sooo, you’re wondering why a Not So Techie Girl like me has decided to start a blog giving techie tips and advice? Why? Because I want to share what little techie skills and knowledge I have to encourage non-techies that they too can survive in the techie world.
In this blog, I will share some practical tips on
Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and Access
Windows Movie Maker
ULead Video Studio
Google Mail, You Tube, and other Google Apps
Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Messenger
Basic SEO for non-SEO professionals
WordPress and Blogger
Picasa, Photobucket, Flickr
Canon Ixus 70 (that’s my cam)
Adobe Image Ready
And other such programs, applications, and software.
Expect that my demos, tutorials, and advice will be using layman’s terms and not-so-technical jargon that may or may not be easily understood by everybody. Please be patient. 🙂
Comment, suggestions, and violent reactions are very much welcome. 🙂
