Get Started in WordPress

Point your browser to WordPress at https://wordpress.com/. Click on the “Get Started” link.

Fill out the online form. In the last field, type the proposed web address for your blog.
The web hosting will do a quick lookup to see if the name appears on their system already. If your desired name is taken, WordPress.org will display a series of available alternatives. You can choose 1 of those options or try a different domain name until you find something that works. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Create Blog.”

Wait for your confirmation email. When it arrives, click the link and then sign into WordPress with your username and password.

Choose a Theme for your blog. Your Theme determines the layout and appearance of your blog. You can either search for themes after clicking on the “Find a Theme” button or you can browse Themes based on criteria like what’s trending or what’s most popular.

Click on the Theme you want and fill in the fields on the General Settings screen. If you want to, you can upload a photo of yourself by clicking the “Choose File” button in the gray “Blog Picture/Icon” box.

Decide whether you want your blog to be private or public. Do you want any Internet visitor to be able to read your blog, or do you just want your friends and family to be able to read it? Pick the appropriate setting by clicking on the “Reading” link beneath the “Settings” tab.

Write your first post. Click the “New Post” tab and enter your title and the body of your blog. You can also add photos, videos or links by using the appropriate buttons. When you’re done, click “Publish Post.This is your very first post. Click the Edit link to modify or delete it, or start a new post. If you like, use this post to tell readers why you started this blog.
