it's missing a simple guide for beginners.

for you. WordPress for Beginners covers all the basics you need to get started right now!

About the author
Hi, my name is Nico Julius (@NicoJulius) and I've been creating websites for over 13 years now.
I studied to become a teacher and graduated in 2002. After my graduation, I started working in a
bank where I wrote applications in MS Access and MS Excel.
After 3 years I quit my job to start at a university college where I helped developing the digital learning
environment and training the staff. In this period, I also started to create PHP-MySQL applications.
I've worked there for 4 years.
Today, I'm a full time web developer, developing PHP-MySQL applications. I also run a small company
that creates websites running on WordPress. In the free time that's left I'm sharing my thoughts and
experiences about WordPress and blogging on my blog wpbrix.com.
