You have installed WordPress and you all ready to set up a stellar and beautiful blog. Where do you start?
WordPress is more than a blogging tool. It is a powerful web publishing platform, both easy to use and overwhelming with options. To paraphrase Peter Parker’s uncle:
With great power comes a lot of admin option screens.
This guide will focus on the essential steps for you to get started on the writing and organizing of your new WordPress blog. We will ask you to hold off worrying about the visual appearance (theming) until a bit later. Think of this as building a home; we want to pour the foundation and raise the structural framing before deciding the colors to paint the kitchen.
