Caro Bégin

Hi, I’m Caro Bégin.

I write fiction under two pen names, and I’ve been a self-employed WordPress developer for well over ten years.

In 2019, I started as a platform where I offer custom websites for authors.

Before that, I had various careers, including two years overseas, teaching English as a second language. The two years prior to that were spent teaching various subjects at a naval engineering school. Based on the feedback I got, I’m pretty good at simplifying complex things and providing clear instructions. I’ll let you be the judge of that.

If you attend writers’ conferences, you may have met me (most likely while hanging out at the bar). I’m in my early forties, I have long, curly brown hair, and I speak with a faint French-Canadian accent.

how to migrate/import content

Important notes...

This course requires that you OVERWRITE your WordPress site when you install the theme files and plugins that are included, so it's perfect for those who don't have an author website yet.

If you already have a website, the "Migrate/Import Module" (included in the course) will show how to export your current content and re-import it AFTER you install the theme files included in the course.

The theme REQUIRES a premium plugin that cannot be included or resold as part of the course, but you can hire me (as a paid add-on service) to help you license it and/or migrate your current site. When you do so, you become my client, and I can then legally use my own plugin license on your website (saving you the purchase and renewal fee of the Elementor Pro plugin. Email [email protected] for more information.

You can purchase the add-on service anytime, but that premium plugin is required to install the theme and get started. As such, most authors will want it right after purchasing the course.

What students say:

"Caro's Elementor for Writers DYI Course is broken into the perfect sized pieces so that even this techno-challenged senior could accomplish the task. And the results are professional. Caro is available to help/guide with clear instructions--and in my case, encouragement. If you are in the market to update or even start your website, I cannot recommend this course enough."
