Using WordPress

WordPress started back in 2003 and used by few people. It has only a single code that can be used to improve the typography for writing. Today, it is the biggest self-hosted blogging tool all over the world and used by millions of people.
It is an ideal platform for blogging since it is an Open Source project – tons of people are working to improve it. Moreover, you don’t necessarily need to pay for it and there is a wide range of themes and plugins that you can choose from.

After Creating Your Account

WordPress is similar to another website where you need a valid e-mail to create an account. You will receive the details about logging into your web hosting control panel (cPanel) – where you will manage support, emails, install WordPress, and other activities.
Once you finished downloading the WordPress app, you can now start managing your account. Customize your blog by changing your theme. You can show your creativity and style with the pre-made WordPress themes – there are free themes while others are paid. In the dashboard click the “Appearance” then “Themes”.

First Blog Post

It can be frightening and intimidating to create your first blog post. You can start with introducing yourself, explain the articles that you will post, or start off with your first topic regarding your subject. In your WordPress dashboard click “Post” then “Add New”. You will be directed to the area where you can write your blog post. It is easy to do because everything that you need is already there like “Categories”, “Tags”, and the “Publish” button.

The Plugins

Depending on the type of blog or website that you want to create, there are thousands of plugins that you can use. If you aim to earn money using WordPress, you need to use special plugins to make your site functional. It can be an online shop, coupon codes site, or through affiliate programs. Plugins can help you add more features or extend the functionality of your WordPress site. Just like the themes, there are free and paid plugins. You can even create your own plugin with WordPress Plugin Development.
