AN AVERAGE DUDE LEARNING DIVI JUST LIKE YOU.
I made this Divi tutorials website because I’ve been designing websites off and on since 2001. I started with HTML and then PHP and then Flash until the iPhone came out and pretty much put an end to that. Then CSS for most of my styling. I tried Joomla and failed. Then WordPress, but I never used WordPress themes. I just created my own templates and went from there. Then one day I was perusing the web and found Elegant Themes and they were touting this new product they were about to launch called Divi. To be honest, I wanted to use their MyCuisine theme (until I realized it wasn’t responsive, and I had just started dabbling in making sites that were responsive).
Well, they launched Divi pretty much the same week that I signed up. Since I have a business and I’m used to investing money for long term benefit (don’t ask how much I’ve spent on video and camera equipment), I went ahead and signed up for the lifetime membership. I even became an affiliate marketer, although I think I’ll keep my day job. Read my Divi review for more information on my thoughts on the Elegant Themes WordPress theme. I even wrote about my 10 favorite things about Divi.
Like my headline says, I’m just an average dude. I’m building this Divi tutorials website because hopefully my trials and tribulations are the same ones you’re going through and you can learn from my mistakes and insights. My main job is not as a website designer, it’s as a public relations consultant (read: I can write and communicate clearly) and as a video / advertising guru (read: pretty creative fellow). Therefore I don’t speak in website speak, so hopefully my information will not be confusing to the average Joe and Jane.
Thanks for stopping by.

Divi Tutorials: Stuff I Didn't Know
The more I use Divi, the more I realize I don’t know about Divi. Like most folks, I watched a few Divi tutorials and then dove in. Now, I’m constantly finding new things I didn’t know before. For instance, do you know how long I used Divi before I realized I could customize my color palette? Maybe you didn’t know about the color palette either. Hopefully I taught you something. Something that will save you time.
Divi Tutorials: Just The Facts
Divi has all types of users, from the uber WordPress veteran who eats this stuff in her sleep, to the newbie who’s still not quite sure what Divi is. My Divi tutorials will lean towards the latter, although I hope the veterans will gain some new insights as well. Mostly these tutorials will center around using the different modules in Divi and showcasing how to utilize them and make custom changes, so you can go take Divi to the next level.
Things I Use
As a photographer, web designer, film maker and advertising agency owner, I use a lot of tools. So every now and again I will review one of these tools, or perhaps do a tutorial on best practices for using them. I have a few photography tricks I may want to share, or something in Photoshop that will make life easier. And sometimes I try a new product that I want to share with the world (or warn it against).

This is one of those plugins that’s only going to appeal to a certain number of people. People like me who have a need to add syntax code to websites. But if you’re one of those people, then I recommend you get the plugin — Divi Code Snippet Module — from the creator of Divi Booster. I tried 3 or 4 plugins in WordPress, every one of them …
Here’s the dilemma. When I build websites, I build them primarily for a landscape screen. Most of my photos are optimized for landscape screens. My Facebook and Twitter graphics are for landscape screens. But Pinterest prefers portrait style graphics for its pin boards. See the problem? My website has graphics that are wider than they are long (landscape). Yet, Pinterest wants graphics that are taller than they are wide (portrait).
If you’re like me and are using the sidebar for your blog posts, then you probably would like to add a little more style to the generic sidebar using Divi.
