This is a full length video tutorial that walks you through creating a website and or blog with the Hueman theme from Alxmedia.se. The Hueman theme is a great theme to use for having a full fledged blog on your site. I also really like the modern look and feel that you get with Hueman and the ability to customize the color scheme. You can see the exact website I show you how to make here: http://cities.quickwebsitecreation.com/
Watch the video on YouTube to get the table of contents/time stamps in the video description beneath the video by clicking on “show more”. That will make it easier to skip around.
Be sure and download the theme from Alxmedia.se and not from the WordPress Theme Directory. The two versions are slightly different and you won’t be able to use shortcodes with the version from the WordPress directory.
The Origami theme from siteorigin.com is a great theme to use if you are looking for something simple and effective. Site Origin also has a plugin called Page Builder that allows you to customize the layout of your site on any page which enables you to have even more control over your content. For example, if you want to have 1 row with 3 columns and 1 column with 1 row below that, no problem. The Site Origin Page Builder plugin makes this possible.

In this video tutorial, I demonstrate step by step exactly how to install a WordPress social media plugin called social media feather.
You will learn how to easily integrate your social media pages like Facebook, twitter, Google Plus, YouTube, LinkedIn, and more with your WordPress website. This plugin comes with social media icons that can display as a widget in any widgetized area of your WordPress website.
Also, this plugin is light-weight which means it won’t cause your pages to load slowly. This plugin also has great reviews so it should be compatible with most WordPress themes.
This is a great way to grow your blog through your existing readers as it enables them to easily share your blog post content with their followers!
The plugin has two main features:
1) Social Sharing – you can choose to enable the social sharing functionality of the plugin at the end of every blog post so that users can click on the social media platform of their choice and share a URL of your content with their own followers. The URL is generated automatically which is a great feature of the plugin.
2) Social Following – you can easily build up your own social following through the different social media platforms by choosing which social media icons you want to appear in your sidebar or any widgetized part of your site. You can easily link your social media pages to these icons so that when users click on the icons that are on display as a widget, they will be directed to your social media pages.
