For anyone who is familiar with WordPress, they know that it is a user-friendly platform to build a website without having to know code. The reason for this is because developers from around the world create “themes” which are a set of templates that make up the layout, styling and over appearance of the website.
For the general lay-person, this is of great value because they can pick and choose from among thousands of themes to meet their needs. And if you pick a quality theme that continually keeps up to date with WordPress updates, you will have a functioning website for many years to come.
However, for authors who have little or no web-building skills, even these templates can be challenging. For example, many paid themes and some free themes have a backend administrative area that has so many options that it can be overwhelming to the beginner. If you want to customize these themes to brand yourself, you can be in for many weeks of learning.
What I have found with most writers is that they would rather spend their time writing instead of learning all the nuances of web design. The best solution for this type of person is to find an author website pre-built template.
They are hard to find because, as mentioned a moment ago, most templates still require the user to download, install, configure and customize the theme. But the pre-built author templates available here at WordsandWriters.com do not require any of that work. Here are a few templates as examples. All of them come to you already installed and pre-built with even the plugins installed and configured. All you have to do is add your content and you’re done!
Here are a few example sites of authors using these templates:
So say goodbye to a huge learning curve. You can build (complete) your site yourself with the help of our 32 step-by-step videos or the team at WordsandWriters can complete it for you along with any further customization you may want.
We hope you take advantage of this unique opportunity to get building your “author platform.” And please share with your writer friends.
