Abbot Village Press

Books and blogs with purpose

Your WordPress Blog/Website

WordPress is one of the most popular free and open source blogging and website publishing platforms available today. In this “user friendly” and hands-on course you’ll learn the basics of building a blog or website for your business or pleasure—in fact, you’ll have your site up and running by the end of the class. Depending on enrollment and interest, this may become an ongoing course. You should have some basic computer skills and a basic understanding of the Internet.  The class is not designed for advanced users!

Tuesday, February 4 and Tuesday February 11 (two sessions) at PVAEC in Dover Foxcroft from 6:30 PM until 9:00 PM

Taught by Walter Boomsma. Contact PVAEC at 564-6525 or visit the PVAEC website for more information or to register.


Is There A Book In You?

Book LogoPublishing technology and the industry has changed dramatically in recent years. It’s no longer impossible or expensive for new authors to get published thanks to “Indie Publishing” and POD (print on demand) technology. Join local author “Mr. Boomsma” to learn how he published and distributes his recent book “Small People — Big Brains” using readily available resources.
