How to set up a free blog on WordPress.com

Now this really will not take long at all. So let’s get straight into it!

 

Pop over to www.wordpress.com and click on the Get Started button.

 

This takes you to the page below, click on the Start With A Blog button.

 

 

You are taken to a page with several different themes (which means designs), click on the one you fancy. It really doesn’t matter which one as they can easily be changed around.

 

 

 

 

Next pop in a name for your site.  It will be created as www.yoursitename.wordpress.com  but that is fine for the moment.

 

 

 

You will be offered one free name and other paid options. Just choose the free one for now.

 

 

 

 

 

Then click on Select Free on this page.

 

 

Then create your account, choose a user name and  password.

 

It will take WordPress a few minutes to set things up, and you’ll need to confirm your email address.

 

 

When you click the link you’ll be taken to the dashboard of your blog.

 

Now get started by clicking on Settings and give your site a new Title and Tagline and set the correct time zone.

 

 

And now it’s time for a cup of tea before getting on with learning to write posts and set up pages.

Then you’ll mess about with changing themes, just to show yourself you can.
