How to set up a blog with WordPress.com

As I explained in my last post “WordPress.com vs WordPress.org“, I believe you must have decided between these two options. If you’ve decided to create a blog with WordPress.com, then this post is for you because, in this post, I will share the steps to create a WordPress.com blog in a few minutes:

Step One

Go to www.wordpress.com and click on the button “Get Started” as shown in the screenshot below:

Get started WordPress

Step Two

On the click of the button “Get Started”, you will see a page like below where you will need to enter the basic details like your email address, Username, Password, and Blog Address. You must be very careful while choosing the address of your blog because this is the link through which the world will come to you, so you may opt for the brand name of your business or you may go for a keyword suitable for your business like Web Development Singapore (if it’s available), etc. Once you fill in the required information and submit the button “Create Blog”, you will receive an e-mail to verify your ownership of that email account. Upon verification of your email ID by clicking the link in your email, you will be redirected to a page that says “Your account is now active!” and you are done with creating a blog.
