In this step-by-step blogging tutorial video, I show you how to create a professional WordPress blog. This video is intended for people that are completely new to building a blog or a website so it is very detailed and starts off with getting a domain name and hosting account!
This will be the first of several WordPress blogging videos so be sure to subscribe to my channel and visit my website at http://www.wpsculptor.com
This video will walk you through how to setup your blog using the free professional WordPress theme from theme4press called “HUMIX”.
Some of the things covered include:
-Setting up a domain name and hosting account with hostgator.com
-Getting your first month of web hosting for just 1 cent
-Installing WordPress on your hosting account
-Downloading and installing a free professional WordPress theme
-Finding free, high quality, public domain icons and photos
-Using a free online application to create a logo and edit photos.
-Creating pages and blog posts
-Understanding blogging functionality including user comments and categories
-Using the visual editor to add images and customize text
-Creating a custom navigation menu with optional drop down menus
-Adding an optional slideshow to the blog page with your own pictures and captions
-Embedding youtube videos
-Installing a contact form plugin and more!
The WordPress theme I demonstrate is also responsive! This means it re-sizes neatly on handheld devices. (I completely forgot to mention this in the video!)
UPDATE: It was brought to my attention that there are “broken image icons” that display when using certain web browsers such as Google Chrome. Here is a link to a video on how to fix that:
Thank you for those who pointed that out!
