How to Create Your Own WordPress Blog: A Video Tutorial

We all know that content is king, and its empire is growing by the minute. This is more true now more than ever since Google’s Hummingbird algorithm update. One of the best ways to add content to your website is to create and maintain a blog focused around topics relevant to your company’s industry. A blog is also a great way for professionals to build their personal brand by writing about industry topics and trends.¬†

Never created a website before? No need to worry, creating and maintaining a blog is easy when using a blogging platform. Two popular blogging platforms are WordPress and Blogger. I prefer the WordPress.com platform for many reasons, including:

  • Easy to use interface
  • Great free built-in themes
  • No HTML experience required
  • SEO friendly
  • Automatic posting to social media sites

However, I recommend checking out several different blogging platforms to see which best meets your needs.
