2. Starting Your Blog Right

Creating Your Blog

WordPress might look complex when you’re beginning a blog. If you’re using WordPress.com, there are fewer options, but some are still on the advanced side. If you’re using WordPress software, there are additional options. The ones that have to do with blog setup, posting blog entries, and hosting concerns are somewhat mixed together. Yet the options that are important from the beginning make a big difference in having a trouble-free and enjoyable experience in blogging with WordPress.
