#15 Sams Teach Yourself Wordpress 3 in 10 minutes
Chuck Tomasi, fellow Friends in Tech member and co-author of Podcasting for Dummies, along with another Friends in Tech member and podcasting partner, Kreg Steppe, have a new book out that would be a great gift for anyone interested in blogging and New Media.
Wordpress is my first recommendation when someone wants to get started with blogging, but it can be a little intimidating. It is very powerful and with power comes complexity. That said, this book can help to jumpstart your Wordpress knowledge and help you be productive.
There is also a companion podcast to the book, Wordpress in 10, available from the author's web site.
"Sams Teach Yourself WordPress in 10 Minutes gives you straightforward, practical answers when you need fast results. By working through its 10-minute lessons, you’ll learn everything you need to build great blogs with WordPress and WordPress.org, and reach any audience by web browser, RSS, or cell phone!"
