The other day I wrote a post about developers leaving money on the table by not learning a little more about mobile and creating mobile solutions using AppPresser. In case you didn’t know, AppPresser makes mobile development easy for WordPress developers.

One developer read my post and sent me a pretty long email about how what I had written was silly because all he needed to do was create a responsive theme and it would look great on a mobile phone.

He was right if that had been what I was saying. But let me clarify that I wasn’t suggesting that at all. I was giving him a way to make a lot more money than just designing a nice theme. I shared with him a single example. And now I thought I would share it with you (in the video below).

Welcome to the Date My Single Daughter website. This is a mock-up of a dating website whose target market is the tens of millions of parents of single women.

These parents know that it’s often difficult for Mr. Right and Ms. Right to find each other in the real world, and that the time-tested “Jewish Mother” method of matchmaking actually works. After all, who knows a young woman better than the parents who have lived with her for over a decade?

The goal of this website is to bring parental assistance and the power of social networking to the single daughter looking to marry a good husband.

This domain is registered at GoDaddy.com so it’s easy and fast to transfer from my account to yours, and it is up for auction at eBay.

Here's where I talk about creating a dating site with WordPress.. all he needed to do was create a responsive. dating website with WordPress ?

Y ou might find building your own website fulfilling, but unless you know a lot of code, you’ll probably find publishing much on the web frustrating if not impossible. Even if you have advanced coding skills, you’ll find that building your own website and content management system will take a quite a long time.

Thankfully, there’s a completely free open source publishing system you can use to power a website or blog: WordPress. Its usability, and being free, make it the most popular content management system on the web, powering over 75 million websites. It’s also very easy to install - you don’t need to know anything about web coding.

There are really two options for using WordPress - create a website on WordPress.com , or self host a website. It’s really very easy to create a website on WordPress.com, as there are step by step instructions, but the downside is there will be limits on flexibility and how much you can upload. This tutorial is about how to host your own installation of WordPress, as it’ll give you much more freedom to scale and customise your website later on.
