About us & contact

Hi, my name is Julie Sebode, I offer general WordPress Starter and Advanced Courses and Customised WordPress Training in Dublin, Limerick and Cork since 2010.

You can contact me at julie@wp-training.ie – or give us a call on +353 (0)86 775 2457.

Previously I worked in international tourism for 10 years, I lived in different parts of the world and came to Ireland in 2009. I have created and administered WordPress blogs for private use, non-profit organisations, SMEs and international companies since 2007. I also have 5 years teaching experience and hold a Train the Trainer QQI level 6 certificate. I have occasionally facilitated Worksearch2.0 in Dublin and have attended various networking groups, social media in business and start-up events, where I met a lot of people who were very interested in using WordPress as their website or blog to promote themselves, stand out from the crowd, build a reputation and get feedback from their clients. WordPress is a fantastic Content Management System (CMS) with endless options and worldwide support. You can find all the instructions on the internet, but it will take time to get your head around them because there is such a myriad of choices and possibilities.

That’s why I decided to offer a Starter and Advanced Course in WordPress, to give you a good overview and a starting structure for your new website or blog, which you will be able to administer by yourself as and when you want. I also offer staff training customised to websites built in WordPress.org, the training can be held in one of our conference or computer rooms in Dublin 18 or at your company premises, please email me for more information.

  1. Hi,

    I am interested in doing your starter wordpress blog course. When and where is the next class?

    I can’t seem to send an email to your julie@wp-courses-ireland.com. address as gmail says it is not recognized. Has your email changed?

    Many thanks,

    • Hi Hilary,
      Thanks for your comment. Our email has not changed and I received emails yesterday and today without any problems, so not sure why you couldn’t contact us. I will send you an email with information about upcoming courses.

      Kind Regards,

    • Hi Caroline,

      Thank you very much for your feedback – greatly appreciated!

      In regards to your question, you can’t convert the site but you can move your WordPress.com blog to a self-hosted blog using the WordPress.org software. You have the option to purchase a Guided Transfer (one-time fee of $119.00 per blog). One of the WordPress engineers will transfer over all your content, install and configure plugins to support features you have used on WordPress.com, switch your domain(s) over, and provide support on your new WordPress.org install for a two-week period.

      If you are technically minded and your site is quite simple, you might just want to set up your WordPress.org account yourself and then transfer the content.

      To transfer the content, just go in your old blog to Tools → Export and download the XML (WXR) file to your computer.

      Then go to your new blog, go to Tools → Import → WordPress and upload the file you downloaded in step 1. Make sure that you choose the option to Download & import file attachments. (This option will be available after you upload the file).

      I hope that helps, I look forward to seeing you at the Advanced Course.

      Kind Regards,
