Since I haven’t ventured off into the world of WordPress MU yet, I was quite anxious to get my hands on Lesley A. Harrison’s WordPress MU 2.8 (Beginner’s Guide) book. I have finished reading this book and I would like to share some of my thoughts about the book.
This isn’t much of an introduction to WordPress MU, but more so a guide on how to build your own blog network, social network, or community using WordPress MU. There are also chapters with good techniques that can also be used on any other platforms (in other words, non-WordPress-MU-specific tips).
The book walks you step-by-step through how to create a mythical community site called “SlayerCafe”. During the process, it shows you everything from finding the right host, installing/customizing WordPress MU to driving traffic to your site and monetizing your site.
