How to start a WordPress blog

Posted: January 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

It’s not really too difficult. Mostly you just need to jump in (like a dumpster), root around and see what you might find.

  1. Go to the WordPress site and create an account.
  2. Read the welcome blog post and then delete it – otherwise you’ll look like the rookie you are.
  3. Add a post from the dashboard page.
  4. Upload an image  – click on the tiny camera icon above the post edit box
  5. Select an image from your computer, then click on the “include in post” button near the bottom
  6. Add a bunch of words – you can go back and edit your post so don’t get too persnickety about the order.
  7. Hit the publish button over on the right side and presto – you’ve posted to your blog
  8. Every once in a while you can change the appearance of your blog – like changing clothes – try to do this on occasion – click on the Appearance button on the left nav bar and choose a new suit. Some allow you to add an image. Click on “preview” to take it for a spin.
