Rrochelle-glamochelle Parry will present “Website 101” and “Optimizing you Presence Online” at Chanticleer Authors Conference 2014.


“Website 101 (for the computer-challenged author)” will be an introductory overview of the various forms of websites available. We will look at the difference between blogs, hosted sites, free software and subscription software. You will learn the advantages and disadvantages to each solution. We will have a Q&A session.

Who Should Attend: Those who have thought about getting online but just aren’t sure yet; those who have a web presence but want to explore more options; those who just want a better grasp on websites in general.

Rochelle’s second workshop, “Optimizing your Presence Online” will focus mainly on using hosted WordPress software. We will also cover domain names, site setup, choosing a theme, what info you should have on your site, search engine optimization, file management, image optimization, spam control, integrating social media, selling online, and follow up with a Q&A session. She will demonstrate installing a new WordPress site live.

Who Should Attend: Those who are interested in the nuts and bolts of setting up and maintaining their own website, and learn some tips and tricks. If you have a blog on WordPress.com or blogger, and want more control, find out what is involved in having your own web site.

Rochelle Parry has been working with websites since 1998 when she created Megabite Design. She has worked at Microsoft designing software help systems, and at Western Washington University creating and managing websites.
