    Blog with WordPress


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    How can a lone Internet user create plenty of traffic-grabbing content, offer that traffic a Web 2.0 experience and even enjoy interaction with the traffic they bring in? The answer is easy: create a blog. Creating that blog, however, isn’t as easy as snapping your fingers. Want to create a blog? Learn how to get started by blogging with WordPress.

    Huh? WordPress?

    What’s WordPress? It is a blogging Web site to end all blogging Web sites. This site’s existence is about giving those who sign up the opportunity to blog on whatever topics they desire, using incredibly friendly online tools. Think of WordPress as a no-code-required approach to blogging. In other words, all you do is type and click; the site’s program takes care of all the rest.

    You choose the design, you choose the layout, you create the posts -- and that’s how easy it is to blog with WordPress. But how easy is it…really? The following step-by-step tutorial will help you set up a blog with WordPress -- before you’re even finished reading.

    Step 1: Sign Up

    You may think it’s the flashy pictures, the great videos or the myriad of links, but in fact the most valuable thing on the Internet is information. For the most part, you’re required to share yours before you can create anything online. WordPress is no different. When you sign into the site (http://wordpress.com/), you’ll notice a simple page layout with plenty of links, and a sign-in spot on the right side. Those who don’t have an existing WordPress account should click the huge green button that beckons: Sign Up Now!

    This will lead instantly to another very simple page, featuring text boxes for your information. The first prompt encourages you to pick a user name. This is very important, because your user name will determine the Web address of your blog. Move down the list and create a password (then re-type to confirm). The email address follows, then you have to sign off that you read the site’s terms of service (a standard document which protects the materials on the site and software therein).

    WordPress is a completely free service. By signing up, you will not be agreeing to pay for a single thing. WordPress prohibits “spam” (a common term given to messages of marketing or irrelevant content which are needlessly repeated in order to swamp the public with those messages), hate content and the spread of computer viruses.

    When signing up with WordPress, you can create just the username or you can sign up for a blog of your very own. Simply click the radial next to “gimme a blog” and you’re ready to get started.
