Who has the time to read boring tech books? Stop spending countless hours not knowing how to get the most out of your WordPress website. Tutorial videos can teach you how to use WordPress to build and manage your own website or blog in very little time.

Here is a collection of my favorite beginner resources for learning WordPress online:

Remember that often the best way to learn is simple trial and error.  Try playing around with WordPress, if you can already manage your Facebook, LinkedIn, or other social media sites, you are already more than capable to use WordPress.
