If you want to , here’s entire process step-by-step:
Sign up for web hosting (we recommend Bluehost).
Pick a domain name for your blog.
Install free WordPress blog software.
Log in and write your first blog post.
Change your blog design by picking a theme.
Install a couple of essential plugins.
Don’t forget marketing
We’re going to cover each of these steps in detail below, but for now, what you need to know is that neither of these steps requires in-depth technical knowledge. Yes, you really can figure out how to set up a blog on your own!
Once you get your free WordPress blog up and running, you’ll probably want to start writing and likely tweak its appearance/functionality. To help you do that, we’ll also show you how to:
Write your first blog post using the WordPress editor
Change how your free WordPress blog looks using a “theme”
Add functionality to your blog using tools called “plugins”
As long as you know how to use sites like Facebook and have an overall confidence when it comes to “web stuff”, you can follow this guide. We promise!
A quick note. This guide is not about using WordPress.com. Instead, we’ll show you how to start your own blog using self-hosted WordPress so that you’re in full control. This is our recommended approach. If you’re not sure what the difference is, you can read this post for more on the differences between WordPress.com and WordPress.org/self-hosted WordPress.
