WordPress 4.0 "Benny" was released yesterday. It's jam-packed with lots of new goodies for fellow bloggers. It still surprises me when my friends and clients are using older blogging platforms. I often get asked how to set up a self-hosted WordPress blog, so I created a free step-by-step guide for you. I recommend always going with a self-hosted WordPress blog (WordPress.org) over a blog hosted by WordPress (WordPress.com). The main reason is the amount of customization you can make to your self-hosted blog. This includes installing cool templates and plug-ins that improve how your blog functions. Here's a great infographic from wpbeginner.com to help you understand all of the differences.
Give the infographic a read and decide for yourself. My step-by-step guide includes a video to help you. I'll show you how to go from buying your domain name to publishing your first blog post. The best part is it should only take you ten minutes to get your blog up. Are you ready?
Get started now. Follow my directions on how to set up a blog. Leave a comment if you're having trouble too.
