How to start a blog in 10 minutes for free with WordPress
While a blog is a time and hard work, starting a blog can take only 10 minutes, and I want to explain how to step by step. But first, you need to be clear about what you want to talk about in your blog, with the goal that it has a central theme that allows you to expose your expertise, your passion, your knowledge or dreams, whatever you decide! Once you are clear about what your blog is going to be about, proceed to the next steps.
The WordPress platform allows you to create your own free blog in seconds, so once you are clear about what your blog is going to be about, you just have to access es.wordpress.com, click on “Create website” and follow the steps that the same page will indicate.
Do not be frustrated if you do not feel ready to define the name of your blog, you can put a provisional one, such as your name for example and change it in the future.
1. Choose the theme of your blog
The first step is to define the theme of your blog, browse through the different options until you find the topic that best goes with your blog to categorize it correctly.
2. Choose a structure
Define the structure you want your blog to have, if in the future you decide that you don’t love it, it is very easy to change it.
3. Choose the theme (design) of your blog
The WordPress themes are the way in which the content is displayed on your blog, is the design, choose one to create your blog, this also can modify or change later.
4. Choose the name of your blog
To start your blog you can choose between using your own domain or a free WordPress domain, my recommendation is to start doing it for free until you feel ready to take your blog to another level.
Enter the name you would like in the search engine without spaces between words and you will be shown the available options or suggestions in case someone else is already using the domain you searched for.
Do not be frustrated if you do not feel ready to choose the final name of your blog, you can put a provisional one, such as your name for example and change it in the future.
5. Choose a plan according to your needs
The “Free” option is more than enough to start a blog, click on “Choose free”.
6. Create your account
You have reached the last step, enter the email with which you want to manage your blog, a personal user (who is usually shown as the author of the blog) and create your account.
