WordPress is a most popular content management system. There are a lot of users use WordPress than any other CMS, also increasing user growth and relatively more.
WordPress is a free blogging platform. You don’t need to know much about to create a blog. If you do not know about HTML, PHP, etc. then you can still create a blog. Where you can share your articles and post to the public. But porn, gambling, and medicines related issues are not allowed at wordpress.com.
Before starting free blogging from WordPress.com let’s say a word blogging is a hobby, where many people start blogging with personal domain and hosting. I suggest self-hosted options but if you have no money you can start free blogging. Why am I talking to self-hosted options? Because, you do not use many things as you wish for wordpress.com such as plugins, themes etc.
First Go to visit WordPress.com than click Get started. There are 4 steps here.
You are on the first step so this step has some questions. You have to answer the questions. First name your blog, second describe your blog, third select which category in your blog and last select how satisfied about making a blog then click continue button.
In this second step go to the search bar and write your blog name or keyword. When you type the keyword or blog name it will be shown below that is available or unavailable. If anyone has been opened in the same name before, then no blog site can be opened by this name. In that case, you can choose an available name that nobody used before. The name of the blog site or the address such as ‘www.sitename.wordpress.com’, you can put your blog name like “sitename/(your name or keyword)”. When the name is fixed then click the free & ‘select’ option next to the name specified.
There are 3 plans in this step personal, premium and business. These 3 options are paid and quite expensive with no advantages. So, go to the free options and click ‘start with free’.
Step 4 contains Create your account. Here you have to put your email address, username and password then click continue button. Then your blog site will be started but your account not active. So first go to your email and click “Click here to Confirm Now”. Now your account is Activated.
