News IT says
1. Choose a topic
What will be the focus of your blog? It’s tempting to tackle multiple topics at once; however, it’s probably easier to begin with one area you have the most expertise or interest in. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself straight out of the gate.
2. Create an account
Go to WordPress.com and click Get Started. Follow the prompts to create your account and new blog.
3. Claim your domain name
Based on the topic you choose, pick a domain that tells readers what your blog is about. You can either create a free domain name that includes WordPress.com in it (example.wordpress.com), or you can register a custom domain that doesn’t mention WordPress.com.
4. Customize the design
Choose a WordPress.com theme that matches the desired feel of your blog. The WordPress.com customizer allows you to choose fonts, specify a color scheme, create a custom menu, and upload a custom header image. Don’t worry if you aren’t settled on the visual aspects right away — you can always adjust them later.
5. Create some unique content
To create your first blog post, head over to the My Sites screen. Under Manage and next to Blog Posts, click Add. You’ll be directed to a the post editor, where you can begin writing and formatting your post. You’ll be prompted to add a title (among other details). Start writing the body of your post beneath the toolbar.
With WordPress.com, you can start a blog in just a few hours. Once you learn how to create a blog and get into a publishing pattern, you’ll be able to perfect your content until you’re drawing in eager readers every day.
