Ycademy Online Seminar: WordPress for Authors
Author Blogs are in the trend namely in connection with Social Networks. The Goal is to provide visitors with a representative, empathic impression about who we are, what we are, where we come from and where we are heading to.
People wish to find out more about us, beyond the short profiles published on social networks (which should mainly consist in a link to your full online profile, such as the CashflowIn profile and your personal website).
The Internet is about people, and it’s not just about other people, but it’s about you. Whether you want it or not, your name will sooner or later hit the net and it’s up to you to get in control of your image.
The Model: Semiomantics Author
Above: customized version of the new Semiomantics Author Blog. The site can be found HERE.
The theme is flexible and can be used with 1 or 2 sidebars of either 360 px or 180 px wide. The layout can be set as traditional blog layout or in magazine style. The fully widgetized theme allows to display content from different sources and in different formats.
The present example mixes content linked to multiple topics (keywords) with the presentation of personal products or services and access to the shopping pipeline. Design elements are style sheet based and the only graphics used are a background and a header image.

Limited Number of Participants
Because of the huge work load we have scheduled for this Seminar, as well as the personal attention we want to extend to each participant’s needs and preferences, namely in relation to customization, we have to limit the number of participants to 10.
Cost: The Tickets are sold at $50, with the usual discounts for Ycademy Pros. You will get a special invitation mail for the pre-seminar calls directly from Bianca Gubalke.
Tickets are available HERE.
This Seminar is a major event in multiple respects.
First of all, Participants get the latest Semiomantics Theme for free, a $138 value
Site Customization is an expensive issue if you have to out-source the work. High Quality Graphics cost a fortune, not to talk about style sheet editing and page creation where designers charge per hour or per page. We will provide you with Photoshop quality headers and backgrounds and show you how to modify and adapt them for your needs. Photoshop graphics usually are charged between $50 and $100 per piece!
