  • Setting Up A Wordpress Blog
    How to set up a free blog in less than 10 minutes.
  • Step 1http://wordpress.com
    Enter the URL address below in
    your web browser
    http://wordpress.com
  • Step 2“Sign Up Now”
    Click the orange button labeled
    “Sign up now”
    You will find the button in the
    upper right quadrant of the
    Wordpress.com page.
  • Step 3Username
    Type in the username you wish
    to be identified by on the
    Wordpress network.
    This is the name which you will
    use to log in to your blog in the
    future.
    Be advised, you will not be able
    to change this in the future so
    pick a username you are content
    with.
  • Step 4Password
    Type in the password that you
    want to use.
    Remember to make a note of
    both the username and
    password you assign to your
    blog, just in case your memory
    fades over time. You will need
    both of them to log in to your
    Wordpress account to update
    your blog in the future.
  • Step 5Email
    Type in the email address you
    want Wordpress to use to notify
    you of anything of importance
    regarding your blog.
    For example, this is the email
    address you want to use to be
    notified when someone has left a
    comment or feedback on your
    blog.
  • Step 6Legal Box
    After you have reviewed the
    legal disclosures click the
    appropriate box to indicate your
    acceptance of the legal term.

    choice to set up a blog or just
    reserve a domain name.
    Go ahead and elect “Gimme a
    Blog.”
  • Step 8Click “Next”
    Click the button labeled, “Next.”
  • Step 9Blog Domain
    Whatever you enter here will be
    part of the URL for your blog. It
    will be what your clients will type
    in to their computers to find you.
    It will also be what search
    engines, like Google, will use to
    identify you.
    Be advised, you will not be able
    to change this in the future,
    although if you “buy” a domain
    name you can link it to your blog.

    on each page of your blog.
    For example, my blog’s title is
    The Insurance Barn Consulting

    language in which you want
    to write and publish your blog.
