So you choose the confident option – excellent!

In that case you get to use WordPress, a free online blog hosting service that is  pretty simple whilst having lots of nice features too.  25 Things is a WordPress blog 😀

Step 1: Go to the WordPress website.

Step 2: Fill in the form – remember, you can use a made up name if you want. Make sure you tick the box about legal flotsam. “Gimme a blog” should be highlighted, so click “Next” and follow the instructions. Make sure you make a note of your username and password and blog address.

Step 3: If you can’t see the controls for your blog click on ‘My Dashboards’ at the top of the screen. This will give you a toolbar down the left hand side of the screen with all the sections you need to add posts, change the appearance of your blog etc

Step 4: Add a new post to your blog to introduce yourself to everyone. You can be boring and talk about work, or a bit more interesting and tell us the names of your pets… anything really! For an example have a look at my blog “Its All About Amy”. Find it at the top of the list of blogs on the left of the screen.
