WordPress is now one of the most used blogging services on the internet. This is the reason that this article will explain various aspects of how to create your own space on the internet with the use of WordPress.
How to make a blog using WordPress
To make your blog using the WordPress you will first have to create a login on it. You can do this by making a user name and login password. Simply click on the sign up button that is found on the top right side of the corner of the page. The sign up process involves you giving essential information that will entail your email address on which you will get notifications and emails on posts and updates. You will also have to accept the terms and conditions that will be shown on the agreement. Once you have read this you will accept the agreement and click on the “Gimme a blog” button that will officially start your blog.
After clicking on the, “Gimme a blog button” go to your email inbox. The reason is that WordPress will be sending you the activation link that will allow you to activate your account on WordPress and clicking it will take you to your profile.
The first step in the creation of the blog on WordPress is to make your blog’s name. Take your time in this process as this will be the most prominent feature your blog will rely on. Try to create a name that will be relevant to your own blog’s main theme and subject. Remember your main audience and also try to make keywords that users might use to search on the search engine. This is a important trick of search engine optimization.
How to post on Blogs using WordPress
You now must know how to post on the blog when you are using WordPress. To do this you will have to go to the admin panel. You can do this by copying this URL and pasting it onto the address bar of your web browser.
The X represents the name of your blog. You must replace this ‘X’ with the name of the blog so that it allows you access to your blog. This will take you to your blog and show you the sign up panel. Enter your username and password to access it.
You will then have to click on the “post” button that is on the left hand corner of the panel and on it you will find the tab “add new”. This will allow you to create a new post. You will have to enter the title or topic of the post that you will publish and enter the content of the post in the larger box that is under it. There will be various tools and widgets that will allow you to make your post more creative and innovative like adding pictures or videos.
After making all the necessary adjustments and tweaking in your post you will click on the Post button that will publish it onto the blog.
How to customize your blog on WordPress?
One of the benefits of WordPress is that you can easily use it to customize your blog. To do so you will go to the admin panel and on it you will select the ‘Appearance tab’. This will be located on the left side of the column. Here you will be able to access the themes too. You can then select from a range of themes that WordPress allows their users to have. You can take your time browsing the themes and choose the one that you like best. You can change the theme of the blog whenever you want without making anything disappear from the blogs.
You can edit the theme that you are using currently by going to the theme option again. You will also find that the theme options are different and unique for each of the themes that are available to the users. These options are different because these themes are mostly made by different developers. Use these options to alter the settings for the theme that you are using. For instance the WordPress default theme allows the users to let their twitter name be shown on the interface so that their followers are able to find them easily. Once you have done all the tweaking that you want, you can click on the “save all options” button.
WordPress allows its users to have widgets that are developed to assist in the tweaking and managing of the blogs. On the appearance category you will find many widgets that make the user add many different features to their blogs. For instance, we see the famous Facebook “like” button on many blogs. This is done with the help of the same widgets. To get a widget activated on the blog you will select it and simply drag it to the sidebar ( the area that is on the right hand side of the blog).
