Since I’ve started blogging using WordPress CMS , I have had more than a few people ask me how they too can make money from  blogging. It’s easy to look at people who have risen to fame and prominence by building a high-profile, money-making blog and think “Hey, I can do that, too. PerezHilton has done it and so can you.If you play your cards right, you can start to pulling in an income from your blog. You can make anywhere from  $ 100 per month to a few thousand dollars depending on what your topic is all about.

These are the topics that I will cover in the 5 hour workshop : Blogging for profit

  • How to select the right domain for your blog.
  • How to register your domain and find a good hosting account to park your website.
  • Content strategy – Decide on what topics to write about and how to find your target audience

memberships to your website.People can pay a yearly or monthly amount to gain access to exclusive content on your blog, to participate in forums, or to receive a monthly newsletter from you.

How to boost your Google rankings seminar.

Search can be classified as either organic (natural) or paid. Organic results are those that occur
naturally in search engine results pages ( SERPS ) and high results depend on the natural
construction of your site and the content within it. Paid result often referred to as pay per click or PPC, are the results owners pay for and which usually surrounds the organic listings. Research shows web user prefer organic listings. For example my webdesignworkshop-usa.com is less than a year
old and I get a lot of leads from my organic listing. I have never ever done PPC like most new
business owners.
The goal then of SEO ( Search Engine Optimization ) is to improve your organic listings performance, which in turn should boost traffic to your site. You can then used Google Analytics to track this kind of traffic.

LA WordPress Developers & Educators – I need your help to create a curriculum and teach WordPress & programming to homeless youths. http://www.webdesignworkshops-usa.com/2014/09/11/la-wordpress-developers-educators-i-need-your-help-to-create-a-curriculum-and-teach-wordpress-programming-for-a-teenage-shelter/ http://www.webdesignworkshops-usa.com/2014/09/11/la-wordpress-developers-educators-i-need-your-help-to-create-a-curriculum-and-teach-wordpress-programming-for-a-teenage-shelter/#comments Thu, 11 Sep 2014 09:42:51 +0000 http://www.webdesignworkshops-usa.com/?p=3429 To my new friends at LA and San Francisco Wordcamp & Matt Mullenweg,

Hey guys ! How y’all doing ? I need your advice and help in setting up WordPress and coding training classes for Teenproject.com at their new facility in Sunland, California. I need to find guests and regular web instructors who can commit 12 hours per month or less depending on your availabilty. I have already met with Lauri Burns and we’re in the process of creating a new web curriculum for these homeless youth. I have to remind everyone that this is all volunteer work. I will add more details on this posts later. Hope you guys could all help me in this worthwhile venture.

Teen Project Ad by sarah Bates & Spencer Canon of DDB LA

Thank you. I found your information online. Two objectives.

1. For me to learn wordpress. It is taking me hours what should
be minutes since I am just hunting around.
2. We are hoping to create a ongoing workshops at our kids facility for a small class
of kids. Our class sizes will be limited to 5-7 youth. Classes will occur on rotating
schedule allowing a minimum of 30 youth to become proficient in web development and design.

I don’t know if you are familiar with HOMEBOYS INDUSTRY. They are x-gang members that now make and sell homeboys tortilla chips. It supports their large shelter and gives them all jobs. We will be similar to that with web design. The students will create websites for the community as reduced rate. Each site created will have a link back to the student’s bios. This will bring about awareness that we “the community” can change the lives of our most vulnerable youth by giving them the support they need to succeed. The money raised from the websites will go directly back to the organization to help
additional young ladies. The Teen Project will place each of the students in a job internship and eventually a full time job in their field.
The outcome:

· Provide 30 unduplicated young ladies a year that were homeless with life sustaining careers
· Provide 30 young ladies with training in web development and web design
· Provide 30 homeless young ladies with the skills they need to maintain a full time job
that pays enough to ensure they are never homeless again.

To provide young ladies that are currently homeless and have not completed high school and have no job skills with life sustaining careers in web development
