2. Choose your blog hosting plan

I recommend the basic plan for now – you can always upgrade later if you decide you want more advanced features, but you get more than enough with the basic.

3. Pick a blog name

Every blog is unique and as such deserves a unique name. A good blog name should be relatively short, easy to remember, and descriptive so that potential readers can instantly tell what your blog is about just from the name.
Once you have some blog name ideas you will need to choose a domain extension. Domain extensions like “.com”, “.org” or “.net” are the most popular, with “.com” being the one most people think of first.

4. Enter your personal and package information

5. Enter your payment information

6. Create your secure password

7. Install WordPress on your hosting

Click one the blue "log in" button in the “Congratulations!” window to get started with WordPress.

Choose a free theme from the list.

Click on the blue "Start Building” button. This will take you over to your site’s WordPress dashboard and WordPress will be fully installed on your site.

8. Customize your WordPress blog

From here, you can control everything to do with your blog, such as creating pages, writing posts, and changing the appearance.
