How to Start Your WordPress Blog
As I try to get started with my WordPress blog, I thought I would post this WebMonkey tutorial on How to Get Started with WordPress. Unfortunately, as with most tutorials written by experts, they talk above the clients they are trying to help.
If you are like me, and not a web developer, your first question will likely be – what is a MySQL database and how do I get one? You don’t need to bother yourself with these questions. In fact, skip past the Installation subheading because if you own a domain name and are hosted by a company, they should be responsible for getting your WordPress blog up and running for you.
The rest of the How To is helpful, if not brief. It gives you a good understanding of the basic functions of WordPress and how you will go about adding content to your blog.
