Today I looked around my new site, but first I want to document how I got the site up since I am from another century and this technology does not come naturally to me. I may want to have another site but there is no way I will remember how I did this one. So this is how I did it in 2017 (but knowing technology, it will all be different in a couple of months):
- Set up a new e-mail so that I can keep all e-mails concerning this blog in one place;
- Access WordPress.com;
- Select “Create a Site” https://wordpress.com/start/design-type; and
- Follow prompts to set up a new site (insert e-mail address, name of website and pay fee).
Being so easy I am certain to forget — but now I have a 4-step process and a link. I am glad that I bookmarked both my e-mail address and my WordPress login in the bookmark bar yesterday because I know I would have been lost how to get back here.
Taking Care of Business
The first actions I took after logging in to Word Press was to select “My Site” in the upper left hand corner and also select “Settings” at the bottom of the left hand column. I was able to give my site a site title and a tagline. I selected the site title “The Warehouse” because this is the blog that is going to house the trials and errors of my new journeys.
I checked out each option on the left hand column to see what was available to me. When I got to the media line I realized that I had the ability to upload a picture. So just for fun I uploaded a picture that was on my desktop and now I can insert it into my blog right here below:
I like this blogging so far and I am certain there are a lot more features that I may never know because I don’t know they are there or what they can do.
After saving this blog I will try to access my blog through a search engine to see what the public sees.
This seems to be easy to do and does not require high technology skills especially for the not so techie like me.
On to the next new journey which begins tomorrow morning.
