Hi, I’m Jessica.

And here is my website story.

Back in 2009 when I worked at a university, I’d come home at night and refinish small furniture pieces in my apartment. One day I found a blog about someone who did something similar and thought – “I can do that. I WANT to do that.” and so began my home decor blog and online business journey.

Now, 100s of thousands of pageviews, 425+ blog posts, several brand partnerships, two more websites, and my own design business later, these sites have been a constant for me ever since. Having your own website is a way to share your talent, earn an income, and pursue a business that will allow you to grow personally and professionally.

Frequently Asked Questions

The course include lessons on clarifying your business goals and planning your website, getting a domain and hosting, creating content, and setting up your theme and pages on your website. It also has many resources to enhance and develop your site or blog. Including: Themes I love and use, legal pages to use on your site, where to get stock photography, Canva tips, and more.

This course is exactly for the person who does not already have a website and wants walk-through easy-to-follow lessons on how to do so on the self-hosted WordPress platform.

First – there are two different WordPress platforms with the same name but they are different. The WordPress.org platform allows you to have your own website, where you pay for hosting and a domain, and the WordPress part is free. This allows you to “own” the site, meaning it is not on a platform where you pay for it monthly, or with a service that you do not have content ownership over. WordPress is the most commonly used content management system worldwide because of its ease of use, functionality, options, design, and more.

Absolutely. This your first step in setting up a website and then developing it to grow as you and your business grows. There is information on setting up and formatting blog posts in the course.

Two additional expenses you would pay for are your domain (usually around $20 USD a year) and WordPress hosting (starts around $2.99 a month, for $35.88 USD annually – at the time of writing this). The WordPress platform and theme I recommend are free (and have tons of design options). Other expenses might be optional plugins for website functionality, custom fonts, or licensing for photos (also optional – and I show you how to get free stock photos).

I’ve had my own website since 2009, when I began my online business as a home decor blogger. Since 2020, I’ve been a website designer for clients and have created and/or worked on more than 25 websites. I currently manage the websites for my own three businesses.

Yes and no. This course will show you how to: Get a domain; Get website hosting; Install WordPress; Decide on a theme; Set up website pages; and more. It will walk through INTRODUCTORY lessons in setting up a home page, about page, blog, and ecommerce shop on your website.

This course is specifically to set up a self-hosted website on the WordPress.org platform with your own hosting services and domain/URL. This is not to set up a website on Wix, Shopify, Squarespace, Showit or any other platform.

As long as you have completed payment for the course you get lifetime access to any future updates or additions made to the course material, so you can stay current with the latest WordPress and website trends and strategies.

This information is very straightforward and would take about 2-4 days to work through at a couple hours a day. Mainly because of the video lessons to watch, information to read, and steps to implement.

The lessons in the course are pre-recorded, but the kick off session will be live, as are the office hours sessions, if you received access to those.

Good question. There is a lot of information available these days on how to set up a website. However I find there are only about one specific topic like creating a blog, or the tech parts of using WordPress, and not comprehensive enough to help you see the big picture on why you are creating this site, what your options are for websites these days, and how to create something that is sustainable yet will grow and adapt with you and your business.

This is a self study course, however there is email support for questions, a kick off call for all new students, and office hours if you received access to those when you enrolled.
