by braniac

Starting a Wordpress blog is easy and fun. You can create a blog to showcase your work such as photography or writing, or start a blog about a hot topic such as politics or media topics.

Go to Click on the Sign Up Now button at the top of the page.

Enter your email and username that you choose to sign in and out of. Your username can be the name of your blog or some other name.

You have the option to start a blog or just get a user name. Getting a user name allows you to comment on other blogs. Starting a Wordpress blog allows you to blog to your heart's content and comment on other blogs.

Choose a blog domain name. Remember that this name can't be changed. It is your permanent Wordpress web address.

You can choose a blog title. Your blog title can change, unlike your blog domain name. Be sure your blog title is clear and tells the reader what your blog is about immediately.

If you want your blog to appear in search engines, be sure to check off that option.

Fill out your profile. Be sure to add experience that makes you an expert in what your blog is about. If your area of expertise is plumbing and your blog is about plumbing, then be sure to write about your years of experience and companies you worked for. Also write about any awards or special recognition that you recieved for your work.

Start writing! The more you write, the more your blog will be read by others.
