How To Setup A New WordPress Blog From Scratch (Tutorial)

Do you want to setup your own blog using WordPress?

Then this video tutorial is for you! In it, I show you step by step how to setup a self-hosted WordPress blog.

How To Setup A New Blog

Step 1. Buy A Domain

For the Domain, I use GoDaddy.com. Just find a domain name you think would be good for your blog. Usually, people want to pick their own name, like I did with http://www.tomcorsonknowles.com/blog

You can also use your business name as the domain name.

Step 2: Get Hosting

For hosting, I use Bluehost. I like Bluehost because they have 24/7 customer support (just like GoDaddy) and whenever I call them, they help me with any problems I have. It’s invaluable to have someone you can call on for technical support when you’re running a business online!

Step 3: Install WordPress

Next, you have to install wordpress on your Domain. You’ll have to update the Nameservers on your domain to the Bluehost nameservers. Don’t worry if it sounds too technical, all the details are in the video above and it just takes a few clicks.

Step 4: Post A New Article

Once your blog is installed, you’re all set! Now it’s time to post you first blog article.

Congratulations! You are now a blogger 🙂 Welcome to the world of blogging!
