WordPress Blogging Tutorial (For BEGINNERS) – How To Create A Blog With WordPress

My Host Gator Affiliate Link:

In this step-by-step blogging tutorial video, I show you how to create a professional WordPress blog. This video is intended for people that are completely new to building a blog or a website so it is very detailed and starts off with getting a domain name and hosting account!

This will be the first of several WordPress blogging videos so be sure to subscribe to my channel and visit my website at

This video will walk you through how to setup your blog using the free professional WordPress theme from theme4press called “HUMIX”.

Some of the things covered include:

-Setting up a domain name and hosting account with hostgator.com
-Getting your first month of web hosting for just 1 cent
-Installing WordPress on your hosting account
-Downloading and installing a free professional WordPress theme
-Finding free, high quality, public domain icons and photos
-Using a free online application to create a logo and edit photos.
-Creating pages and blog posts
-Understanding blogging functionality including user comments and categories
-Using the visual editor to add images and customize text
-Creating a custom navigation menu with optional drop down menus
-Adding an optional slideshow to the blog page with your own pictures and captions
-Embedding youtube videos
-Installing a contact form plugin and more!

The WordPress theme I demonstrate is also responsive! This means it re-sizes neatly on handheld devices. (I completely forgot to mention this in the video!)

UPDATE: It was brought to my attention that there are “broken image icons” that display when using certain web browsers such as Google Chrome. Here is a link to a video on how to fix that:

Thank you for those who pointed that out!

  1. Nice video but the process seems overwhelming. I am an artist and I need to develop a site that has a gallery and a shopping cart. I reproduce my paintings (actually each original) on many different things such as cards, notebooks and other things. What is the best way to make a shopping cart for this?

  2. Good afternoon. I am a long time IT specialist and read and write 7 machine languages, but blogging is new to me. I was looking for a tutorial that was somewhere between “blogging for idiots” and “since you are already an expert” Your video is very well done. However, when I went to ThemePress, they no longer have free basic themes. Any ideas?
