How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes | My Blog 2016 |

I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.


It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.


If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.


The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.


It is good to have a Facebook “page” or a Tumblr blog but they are owned by someone else and you can have a web presence there but under their “Terms and Conditions” It is basically a rental.

Both org and .com variants of Wordpress are a delight to use, I have sued them for years, had to abandon my hosted Wordpress blog when I upgraded my website.  I miss it.

The technical side of blogging can be very demanding, so the plugins really help. In addition to great content and SEO, I think you need an outreach/networking program.

Yes indeed, this is an interesting point, thanks.
