Are you currently looking for a place to create your own blog? Do you already have a theme in mind that you would want to use in your blog? Have you already decided on who’ll be the target audience of your blog? If your answer to all these 3 questions is yes then it’s time for you to start a blog using WordPress.
Before you could even start with your blog, there’s one thing that you need to do first. You need to determine how much knowledge you have when it comes to web design. This is important because if you only have a bit of knowledge when it comes to web design, there are other websites that you could use like Blogger. WordPress is a bit more complicated than Blogger but that doesn’t mean that you can’t learn how to use it. The point is, Blogger is easier to use since everything is already set up for you and the only thing that you need to do is edit your profile then you could immediately start posting. However, since everything is already set up for you, if you decided to customize your blog, you only have limited sources that you could use unlike in WordPress, which has a wide variety of customization. Not only do you have a wide variety of customization, you also have a wide variety of themes that you could choose from. There are a lot of great themes that you could use for free. Yes, you read it right. For Free.
When you finally determine your knowledge when it comes to web design, you could finally start working on your blog. Do you have any idea how to create one? But before you answer that, do you already have an account in WordPress? If you don’t have one then now is the time for you to sign up. You need an account before you could start a blog.
When everything’s all set, you can now start with your blog.
- Create a new blog. When you log in to WordPress.com, go to the “My Blog” tab located on the top part of the page between “Stats” and “Freshly Pressed” Once you clicked it, you’ll see “Create a New Blog” This is where you need to think of what domain name you want to use for your blog. You could also choose if your blog would be public or private. For free blog, your domain name would include wordpress.com on it but if you want to remove it, you need to pay for it. The good thing about WordPress is that they offer great deals depending on your needs.
- Choose a theme for your blog. Once you finished creating a blog, you would be taken to a page that tells you that you already own the domain name of your blog. You’ll see the words “Change your blog’s theme” at the left side of your screen. Click it and you could immediately start choosing from hundreds of different themes. If you’re using a free blog, you don’t have to worry about the themes that you could use. WordPress offers a wide variety of free themes that you could choose from. All you need is patience to go over all of them.
- Add widgets. When you’re done choosing the theme you like, the next thing you need to do is check out the widgets that you could add to your blog. Some of these widgets are blog stats, calendar, categories, contact info, music player, Facebook like box, Flickr and Twitter.
- Start posting. Once everything is all set with your blog, you can finally start posting. Everyone would love to read something interesting and that’s the kind of content that you should post. It’s easy to write interesting stuff but the hard part is how you will prevent your readers from being bored while reading it. Whether it’s a personal blog or a business blog, it is a must for you to keep the content as clean, informative and interesting as possible. The better content you post the more readers you’ll get.
Besides themes and widgets, WordPress still has a lot to offer like adding another page in your blog. You can add as much pages, as you want as long as it won’t have a negative effect on the overall look of your blog. There are some blogs who added too much pages that it made their blogs look messy.
Be creative and make it simple.
