One of the most common complaints (ahem, excuses) we hear from potential new bloggers is they don’t know how to install and configure WordPress. Techie terms like FTP and cPanel are like a foreign language and setting up a database might as well be rocket science when trying to start a blog.

Set Up Your Blog
The first thing you need to do is find a home for your new blog. This is where your blog will live. It’s where you’ll write, publish, and manage your blog posts (or articles). It’s where you’ll decorate and personalize your blog.
Don’t make the critical mistake of confusing an old-school web host for a blog host. If you get a web host, that’s like buying the shell of a house – you’re going to have to build all the walls and install the plumbing yourself!
Be smart and go with a full service blog host where someone else manages all the techie stuff so that you can focus on blogging.
We highly recommend BlogPress blog hosting for this. It provides a “well-built and excellently maintained home” for your blog so that you can focus on blogging without having to worry about all the techie stuff that comes with managing servers and databases.
