Want to start blogging within an hour?
Here is the Quick Start Guide to Start Blogging in 5 Simple Steps.
- Register Your Domain and Get Hosting
- Install MySQL
- Install WordPress
- Setup WordPress
- Install a WordPress Theme
That’s it! This is the down and dirty, bare bones basics to setting up your own blog so that you can get writing as quickly as possible.
Technically, you don’t even need to Install a WordPress Theme in Step 5, since WordPress comes with a decent default theme right out of the box.
On this blog, however, as on all of my blogs, I prefer to take a little bit more time in preparation by installing a few plugins, tweaking my theme, and preparing my site for readers.
That is what the next several posts will be about. I will start a series over the weekend on the 10 Essential WordPress Plugins every new blog should install.
Want My Personalized Help?
If you read through those five posts above, and the process still sounds a bit complicated, and you find yourself thinking, “I wonder who I can get to help me out with this?”… let me help!
I will perform all five steps above for a flat fee of $50, payable through Paypal.
Note: This is not a “Fix it” Service! If you tried to install it on your own, and your blog is not working, I will not come in and “Fix it” for you. Instead, I will delete everything you have done so far…your blog directory, your SQL database, your blog posts, everything! Why? Because I don’t know what you have done, and if it was done wrong, there could be security and install problems which takes WAY longer to fix than just installing it the right way the first time. If you do want me to “Fix it” I charge a rate of $50 per hour. If you want a fresh and new install, continue reading.
If you desire some additional services, such as plugin installation and setup, blog customization, help setting up Google Feedburner and Analytics, or any of the other myriad of things that go into making a great blog, we might be able to work something out for that too.
