For next week: Kill “hello world” with REAL content

leave a comment »

So you’ve all been given the keys to the WordPress car, and just enough gas to get you rolling. So roll! You need to accomplish a few things next week:

1) Kill the default settings: get a theme that works for your site installed, kill the “just another wordpress blog,” switch the view over to a static page if that makes more sense for your content (it probably does), install plugins that flesh out your page. Tweak CSS. Make things happen.

2) Kill the default content with REAL CONTENT for your site. Starting this week and rolling through the next few weeks, you’re required to produce FOUR pieces of content for your site a week (that’s for groups of 3… our lone group of 4, you needs FIVE pieces).
