#asktwitter: Advice For New WordPress Users

Posted 25th March, 2014 by Aliysa

We often post WordPress tips, guides and articles on twitter and our blog - you can find all our WordPress blog posts here - so we thought, why don’t we ask our twitter following for their wisdom? After all, we have thousands of customers who use WordPress everyday and have amassed a wealth of experience and knowledge about the CMS!

Our question to the twitterverse:

> What is your no.1 tip / best piece of advice for a new [#WordPress](https://twitter.com/search?q=%23WordPress&src=hash) user? [#asktwitter](https://twitter.com/search?q=%23asktwitter&src=hash) > > — Tsohost (@tsohost) [March 17, 2014](https://twitter.com/tsohost/statuses/445567877899628544)

Thanks to everyone who got involved with this weeks #asktwitter. We received some really fantastic tips, with the following tweets just a sample of the feedback:
