These are in no particular order…

1. WP Beginner

WP beginner WordPress blog

If you’ve Googled anything about WordPress, you’ve probably come across WP Beginner because it ranks near the top of many WordPress queries.

It’s been around for about 10 years and still going strong with tons of fresh content. You’ll find plenty of tutorials, list posts, and other resources.

One of my favorite parts of WP Beginner is that they have lots of more niche tutorials for smaller topics that you won’t find on other WordPress blogs.
