  1. Thank you for your detailed video…but that’s a lot of information for my 46 year old brain to remember. Do you have any sort of written outline which goes through each of the steps in your video? I started trying to make notes but stopped when it became too much information to track. Thank you in advance!

  2. Hi Greg. I decided to listen/watch the video and actually do it step by step along with you. I’ve been surprisingly successful! Thank you for making it so easy!
    My question is about Amazon. I added banner ads to my page for specific products but my question is how can I get those banner ads only to appear on a specific page? It seems to only offer “page” as a choice vs “post” and then the banner ad comes up on all the pages. I would rather do banner ads specific to each page. Take a look at what your help, helped me to do!

  4. Greg, I got no link to cPanel in my welcome message from HostGator, and when I called them they said my account is pending and it will take a couple of hours before they’ll send me a link to cPanel. Is this normal or a problem?

  5. OMG…you spent ten minutes explaining how to determine the total???? This wasn’t supposed to be a kindergarten math class!

  8. Hey Greg, is there a way for the slider photo to be a link so I can click on the slider photo and it take me to the post?

  9. Hello Greg,

    Regards,

  10. Do you have to have downloaded anything from wordpress.org before you start, or does it do it automatically when you sign up on hostgator with the ‘quick install option’? Thanks

  11. I did it!!!!! So pleased. Thank you for the step by step. A few things had changed since 2014 but I still managed to get my blog started with this vid xx

  12. Update in 2017. Things still work very similarly. I’ve done wordpress work for some clients, just needed the hosting solution. Issue is, the new domain says it will take 48 hours to propagate. So I guess I’ll get started Monday night

  13. plz help me i m confused i wantt to start a website at low cost so should i get a hosting and domain from bluehost and then install wordpress on it or directly make a wordpress website from wordpress.com and get a domain from there only.Which One Is Cheaper also I want to monetise the website to earn money with adsense.Plz Reply Plz I really want help

  14. Mate I’d like some help, I have a blog with WordPress.com, the premium version, I later realised that I haven’t got much plugins with the dot com version, so I signed up for a .org version but I have no clue how to use it (P.s. I’ve paid for hosting on Siteground.com) my question is, how do I move my blog from .com to .org, Like i serious dot understand the .org version everytime I watch a vid it comes up different to how min comes up

  15. This is a great video! I am just starting out in the blogging world and will be watching this over and over as I complete all of these steps. Thank you!

  16. I appreciate what you do! Thank you! Job well done. I am new to website building and you made it pretty easy!
