Eli is back and better in 2015

@corksredfm

Eli Etherton — the self-styled “Computer Guy” whose YouTube videos and websiteare meant to teach “people how we get paid” — has one message for Baltimore’s tech community.

“We don’t push ourselves … and if they don’t start treating this like a business, then we don’t have a tech scene,” he said. Etherton has been pushing, particularly of late. But is it for better or worse?

Name: Eli the Computer Guy

State: Maryland

With CBT Nuggets since: 2012

IT background: MCSE, MCP+I and 1600+ hours of formal training… Worked in the military, corporate world and built my own tech support business to 9 full-time employees.  I currently have over 200 videos, 21,000 subscribers, and 1.8 million video views on my YouTube channel.

When I’m not making MicroNuggets videos, you’ll find me…  Practicing Kenpo, traveling, or watching my Koi.

The best part about making IT videos is… I don’t have to deal with clients anymore…

I’m passionate about IT training because… I believe that technology genuinely makes our lives better, and installing and supporting advanced systems is not nearly as complicated as many people think.

Eli will be making MicroNuggets!

Why Should You Build Your Website With WordPress?

Because you can build a website fast, and you can easily change the way it looks whenever you get the urge. There are thousands of free WordPress templates that you can use, or you can use the new default template that comes with the WordPress installation. It’s a huge improvement over the default template they used to have. Or, if you really get into designing your own look and feel a theme can take you anywhere.maze

Many people think that a WordPress site is “just a blog,” and that you have to write every day to keep it going. You can use it that way – WordPress makes it easy to build an online journal, or “blog”.
But if you prefer,  you can make all static pages, like this site you’re on now. Build a few pages with photos of your artwork or product or hobby, write a bit about yourself and your business or interests, and make it easy for people to find you if you want to be found. Just like a “real” website.
