About the WordPress Gal
My name is Ursula, but my nickname is the WordPress Gal for obvious reasons, or if they’re not that obvious, I’ll be blunt: I love WordPress!
I am a self-taught web designer, working exclusively with WordPress since 2008 from a need to design my own website to showcase my music at Tathiana.com. At that time, I had spent years paying too much for basic HTML templates, and I enjoyed the process of designing my own site so much that I started learning more and more, and eventually my hobby grew into a skill with which I could earn a living.
My services are offered at UCWebCreations.com, and I created this site simply to share some of the knowledge I’ve gained with others to help them out. The WordPress community is an amazing one to be a part of, as it is an open-source (ie. FREE) CMS (Content Management System) that, as of 2012, powers over 17% over the world’s top one million websites, and over 22% of all new websites. It is extremely easy to use for non-techie or geeky people, hence why it is so popular! I always say, if you can edit a Word document, you can use WordPress!
If you’re a beginner looking for some help in familiarizing yourself with the WordPress dashboard, how to create/edit posts, pages, images, and everything else related to the built-in options that WordPress provides, head over to the WordPress Video Tutorials and you’ll learn a lot! There are over 30 videos that will help you get going!
I hope you enjoy the helpful tips I provide on this site. If you’d like to contact me, please don’t hesitate to use my contact form located on the Contact page.
