  12. 12. Get Started • Now that you have completed your profile you need to upload a Gravatar (which stands for “Globally Recognized Avatar”) or Avatar. Your Gravatar can be anything you’d like — a photo of yourself, your website’s logo, a picture you love, whatever. Bear in mind that it’s not a very big image, something that has a lot of detail is going to be really hard to see.

  14. 14. Get Started • After clicking on Edit Photo” it will connect you to the next page where you can choose options on how to upload a photo. In this guide I have chosen the first option.
  15. 15. Get Started • Configure basic site settings Okay, you’ve got a site and a profile. One of the two most important settings you’ll probably want to customize right away is your site title and tagline. To get you started, we’ve given your blog the same title as your username, but that might not be what you want. And right now, you’ve got a generic tagline like “This WordPress.com Site is the Bee’s Knees” — time to change them.
  16. 16. Get Started • Click on your dashboard, the My Site tab located on the upper left hand side of the page then click on “Settings”.
  17. 17. Get Started • Under “General” tab, enter your site’s title and your new tagline. If you don’t want to have a site tagline or can’t think of anything to enter right now, just delete the text that’s there.
  18. 18. Get Started • After entering your Site Title and Tagline click on “Save Settings” to save the changes.
  19. 19. Get Started • Congratulations – you are now officially a blogger, virtual assistant, or whatever you call yourself. Either way, you’ve got the basics of a site. • Next step is to get yourself comfortable in navigating WordPress.com.
