For the purposes of 23 Things RHUL, we are all going to create WordPress blogs. WordPress is a clean, simple system and you can set your own blog up by following the instructions below. Good luck!
Creating a Blog in WordPress
1. Go to http://www.wordpress.com/ and click on the orange ‘Get Started’ button on the right hand side of the page.
2. Fill in the details on the form and click ‘Create Blog’ at the bottom of the page.
3. To personalise your blog, you might want to pick a new theme (a template, which shapes how your blog will look). To do this, click on ‘Change your blog’s theme’…
4. And then browse the available themes. When you find one you like, click on the ‘Activate’ button beneath it.
You’ve now set up your WordPress blog – welcome to the blogosphere! To find out how to create your first post, read the next article in this series: Thing 1 (Part 2): Publishing a Blog Post
