Our WordPress.com customer service team, we call them Happiness Engineers, are experts in helping new users get up and running on their new websites. Across each week of webinars we’ll cover questions about the basics of setting up your website, handling simple and recurring payments, blogging best practices, and adding in eCommerce capabilities. Come with questions as you’ll be able to submit them beforehand—in the registration form—and during the live webinar.

Everyone is welcome, even if you already have a site set up. We know you’re busy, so if you can’t make the live event, you’ll be able to watch a recording of the webinar on our YouTube channel.

Live attendance is limited, so be sure to register early. We look forward to seeing you on the webinar!

    Hey what a kind offer for WordPress bloggers and newbie site builders!
    Going to see if I can find some time during COVID19 lockdown to join a few of those Webinars.

    Register doesn’t have field for inserting email, etc. Just jumps farther down the page.

      Hi there!

      When you press “Register for Free” it will take you to the schedule of webinars, for each day you will see “Register Now” text. Once you click on that for the day you would like to attend, it will take you to the registration page for that day’s webinar.

      Hope this helps!

    I’m trying to understand. WP is free, but to write, I have to purchase a domain. Is this correct?

      Hi there!

      Yes, if you would like a unique domain name, you will have to purchase the domain. Otherwise, for the free plan, you will have a domain name that looks something like websitename.wordpress.com as your domain name.

      Hope this helps!

    This is exciting! After not having the courage to share my blog for 11 months (since initially creating it) I finally added content and made it go live last night. Feels like I gained a limb! I’m looking forward to the webinar at noon — thanks WordPress!
