Here is a simple guide as to how you can start your own blog.

What is WordPress?
It is a free blogging platform where people can submit their articles and blog posts for viewership.
Note: Gambling, Pharmacy and Porn related subjects are strictly prohibited by WordPress.
It is as easy as setting up your email account with some additional tools here and there. In a few quick steps you will have your own WordPress Blog.
You need to visit WordPress.com and then click start. This will help you setup your blog.
- Next choose a homepage layout then choose a theme
- Next choose a blog address or a blog name
- Pick a plan and create your account
There are four best options available for this.
- A list of my latest posts – It is the most recommended format for a blog.
- A grid of my latest posts – If you have high pixel images to display or you are a photographer then you should choose this.
- A welcome page for my site – For business persons
- An online store – For launching shopping sites like flipkart and Amazon
Theme is how your blog looks like to the audiences. You can change the theme as many times as you can.
However, begin with something that goes well with the concept of your blog. Choosing a good theme in the start will help you save time afterwards.
It is quite tough to find suitable names on WordPress.com as most of the catchy and unique names seems to be taken already.
At times the blog name can get pretty untreatable and not something that you would have expected.
PICK A PLAN
Once you are done with the basics which also include your blog name, you then need to click on the “Select Free” button.
Using the paid version will cost you too much without giving you any special benefits as such.
CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT
The email address that you use the most preferably Gmail account can be used.
Then it will prompt for the username where you can use your personal name, provided it has already not been taken by someone.
In case you are not able to find the desirable name that you wish to use, try adding some numbers until it becomes unique.
This will not be your blog name so you need not worry about how it sounds or appears.
It is needless to mention here that you will require a strong password. There are loads of hackers trying to break into blogs so you are advised to use special characters (*^&#%$@!) and numerals.
Now you are almost there! All you need to do is verify your account to start blogging. Simply login to your mail and hit the “verify link” which usually appears in just a few seconds. Once you finish, you can login to your Word Press account from http://wordpress.com/wp-admin
Now start writing posts and reach your audience who are waiting for you.
