How to Create A Blog/Website With Help of WordPress

I still remember coming across WordPress for the beginning time. I decided I was going to begin a blog – I had rarely read a blog before, let alone write one of my own. Whereas I had some earlier school CSS and HTML knowledge dating back to the late 90s (when I design a website with nothing but a notepad and FTP software), I was way out of my knowledge.

WordPress is our one of the finest and preferred way to start a blog because it is so smooth and easy to work with. But the fact is it’s just as easy to forget how to frighten WordPress as when you first begin a blog. Something that gives so much functionality cannot be done intuitively to a blogging newbie. There’s just so much to think about including themes, settings, plugins, and more.

Here is a list of the various or different steps so if you’ve already completed a step then you can skip right down to the step you are presently on and if you are working through the guide you can always bookmark the current step or point you’re on to come back to it.

  2. Install the WordPress & Configure Settings
  3. Select a WordPress Theme to begin a Blog
  4. Install Some Recommended Plugins
  5. Start Blogging

 

Step 1: Get WordPress Hosting:- Before you begin a blog you need a place to host your blog or content. There are possibly thousands and hundreds of hosting organizations available on the web, but not all hosting is the same. The first rule of pollex is that nothing in life is free – mainly hosting. So if you see an organization advertising completely free, no strings attached hosting don’t purchase it. You’ll be much fine off investing some money per month in a decent hosting plan.

Lot’s of hosting plans and companies available on google, you can check and buy your plans easily. Bluehost gives budget-friendly plans that are more than capable of managing a new blog. Though if you can manage a bit more each month we highly recommend WordPress-specific hosting from WP Engine or Flywheel  (which is what we use) since they fully manage your core updates and server for you. Plus both offer security scanning and backups to help make your website safer.

Step 2: Install WordPress & Configure Settings:-  All hosting plans are fully compatible with WordPress and fine if you want to begin a blog. Once you’ve chosen a plan you’ll need to set up and install WordPress for your website. Depending on your user or host installation of WordPress may different a bit, but no matter which you select your site should be ready and live for blogging in very little time.

Here is the finest and affordable hosting, you can read here and select the plans on google.

Bluehost hosting features a quick one-click set-up when you signup on WordPress. Simply log into your account, and choose the “Install WordPress” option under the website. From there you just simply follow the on-screen guide or prompts to choose your domain name and create your WordPress user or admin login information.

Flywheel comes with the WordPress ready to go and pre-installed. Since Flywheel hosting plans only permit you to install one website per hosting plan you need to either add a migrate or domain a website over with the Flywheel team’s help.

WP Engine is preferred and managed hosting plan as well, so don’t need to install WordPress. You will although still need to add a new migrate or domain to your website (login and go to install >Site domain or migration if you want to move your website, then whether you are starting a website or moving to go to install >) If you choose a higher or Pro plan with WP Engine you can easily install multiple websites on your hosting ideas or plans.

 

  1. Choose a WordPress Theme to Begin a Blog:- This is where most of the beginners and new bloggers get tripped up – they spend hours and days in search of a perfect or suitable theme. So let me take a little load off your brain: your blog theme is not that essential when you are just getting started. Your sole concentrate should be creating some amazing content and getting it out there for people to see. Don’t worry about your site’s creation and design too much until you have a sizable audience to tell you whether or not they love it.

By default, you’ll see the yearly WordPress simple theme active on your website. Automatic releases a new one every year and each one is mainly geared towards bloggers. Each year this new WordPress theme is more than suitable for those just getting to begin with WordPress to begin a blog.

But at some of the main points, you will probably want to change to a theme with more amazing features for your growing website. Making the switch is easier- all you have to do is install a simple new theme. Just navigate to appearance > then Themes > Add new theme via your sidebar. Click on the button to upload or select your theme. Then choose your theme zip file to upload, and then install the theme and activate it.

However there are some premium and free themes to choose and pick from, you really can’t beat the quality of the themes made here at WPExplorer.

 

Step 4: Install Recommended Plugins:- If themes are the beginning stumbling blocks for the beginners for new bloggers then plugins have to take a second place. It is all too easy to wait and spend hours installing some number of plugins before you get anything done in terms of some amazing content creation. It’s a huge time inhale.

In reality, you do not want any plugins to begin as bloggers. WordPress is well-managed out of the box. Although, there are some main and important plugins that I would recommend activate and install to get the most out of your blog.

When you’ve found the beneficial and useful plugin you want, click on the “Install now” link once the plugin has been easily installed you’ll find and given an option to activate your plugin. That’s it! The plugin is now activated and installed. Setup for each of these suggest plugins should be pretty straightforward but if you have any questions you can ask in the comments section below.

 

Step 5: Start Blogging:- At this part or point your blog is almost marked and primed for content production and there are just a few more things to take care of. The first is getting rid off of sample pages, posts, and comment that WordPress includes by default.

Delete the Sample Post & Post

First, click on the page menu item in your sidebar. On your brand new blog, you will see one sample page which you can easily delete by hovering over each and choosing the Trash option.

 

For now, you don’t need to make new pages, though you may want to come back later to design a content page or About at some point. We’re presently focused on getting your blog going which doesn’t need anything except posts and content. So click on Posts in your sidebar and just like your selecting pages delete the sample page or post which is titled “Hello World”

Now your blog is clean, fresh, and ready for your words of wisdom.
