HOW TO START A BLOG (in just 10 minutes)


hello and welcome to this tutorial today I’m going to show you how to set
up WordPress from scratch so first of all we need a domain name and a web host and there’s a good
provider for that which is Bluehost so we just click this link here and
you can do that too, it’s a clickable link and then we’re landing on the Bluehost page and you see on the site is quite cheap they are just
between four and five bucks per month so it depends a little bit on where you are
and if they have a special promotion. but
usually you should be around like five bucks a
month or so. what we’re going to do now is just click
get started to start the blog. you will se a form that says “new domain” or “I have my own domain” so I want to create a new site since I
have no domain for it and just type in the name of the
domain and I click “next” so my domain is available and next is the site with the sign up form. so
now the next thing is you have to fill in your credentials: name, address, etc and select a package type: I can recommend a 24-month package and see if you need any extras like site
backup or extras like security or demand privacy, but usually you can just go over to site backup next fill out your credit card information confirm the term of services and click
“Next” so after the sign up is complete you have to wait a little bit on the start of the blog installation and this is to welcome message and we can
just click away this message and next thing is we are going to install WordPress. Bluehost made it very very easy to do that so we just go on install WordPress here
in the menu so here we are under what person so page you see the version number and depending
on a time when you watch this video this might be a higher number already. but nevertheless
we are just clicking the Install button and if you got more than one domain you
can select a domain here but usually here should be your the main aim that you choose in the signed up. we click and the creating of the blog starts. we then check the advanced options and
you can already enter your title of the website and your username and your password and I’m going to blank this out because
you should be able to look into my site of course you also have to check the
terms and conditions and then you can just click and you see the progress already and it just takes a
little bit and well we are done already and we can just look into your site so what
we’re going to do is basically type in the domain name and of
course you have to use your domain name in this case and you see the blank
WordPress blog. So the creation is complete and we can start to log into the blog. you have to enter your
username and password you created before and if you don’t remember your login details or are not sure anymore you can just go
to your setting on Bluehost and reset the
username and password or just renew them. so we’re going to
login now and here we are in the WordPress blog backend and so I’m going to show you a
couple things you can do to get started really quickly. a first
thing is we are going to appearance and
themes and have a couple of themes installed already but you can also go to the wordpress.org themes or if you have an own blog theme you can also just upload it
with this button we are just browsing though all of these that are available themes here and let’s just go to popular for a moment an take a nice one so let’s see… I think we are going with this one here you can actually preview the blog theme with the preview button and then you see like how it’s going to look like and I actually like this one and we’re
going to install it with the click of a button and most of the stuff for WordPress is
just free so you can just install a couple of themes, compare them
and at some point just decide which
one you want. on let’s quickly activate this blog theme and now the theme is installed and what
we’re going to do now is go to settings and lets just enter our site title and a tagline and there are several other settings and we are
not going into detail here but just a couple of things you can do is of course a site name and tagline
which is going to be presented and important for search engine optimization you should also then go to the permalinks and push that “post name” button so you will have really nice URLs your
blog just safe this and then we’re basically done so if you want to write a new blog post you have two options like if you want to have the site just a blog update you will need this button to write a new post and you can also edit or create pages
which is done with this button, but lets just write a post for now and it’s a well come to my new blog on work and if you want to add pictures or anything you can use the
media button just uploads the files and its all done really
quickly and I’m going to publish this now and you instantly see the result on the newly started blog and its published already you can leave a comment or continue working on the blog. so I hope you had fun with this tutorial and if you want to try it out right now
– you saw it just takes a couple of minutes how to start a start a blog and you can just click this red button in
the middle and go over to Bluehost and get started. I hope you enjoyed it and have fun
