WordPress_how_to

1-First go to www.wordpress.com – click on sign up.

2-Fill out the form, choose a name for your blog, a username for your WordPress account (you can have many different blogs under this account), create a password and confirm that password – that means retype the same password.

3-Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click – Create Blog.

4-Check your email.  Check the email account you used to activate your new blog.

This means CHECK YOUR EMAIL.

5-Click on activate blog, it will open WordPress in a new browser tab.

6-Go your blog.

Mouse over your user name in the top right corner – you will see your blog title at the bottom of the drop-down menu.

7 – This will take you to your Dashboard.  This is the control panel of your blog.  Here you can add pages to your blog, add posts to your blog, change the settings and the appearance of your blog.

Some more tips:

  • You can always see what the world sees, what your site looks like by clicking on your blog’s name at the top left.
  • To change the look of your blog choose, Appearance – Theme, then select a theme to activate.
  • To edit a post look for the edit button at the bottom of the post.  The same goes for pages.
  • To “save” a new post click – publish.
  • To “save” after you edit a post click – update.

Remember, you can always ask me for help – ANYTIME 🙂
