The blog that we will create in this video will have a very clean design that will include the latest features of a modern-looking blog.
We will create it using a platform called WordPress.
WordPress makes it very easy to create a blog without knowing any programming or coding.
Then let's get started.
Step 1: choose a name for your blog
The first step is to choose a name for your blog. Then, just enter the blog address in the box and then click on check availability.
If the name is not available, try changing your domain extension to .com .in .net .org

Step 2: Get domain and hosting
The next step is to register the name of the Blog and obtain Hosting. Now, registering gives you the property and Hosting puts your blog on the internet.
To do this, you must click on "Get domain and hosting".

Step 3: Install a new theme
To install a theme, you must log in to your blog again. Then, simply add "/ login" after the address of your blog and then press enter.
Now, go to appearance and click on themes.

Step 4: Add content to your blog
To complete our blog, we will add 12 different elements.

1) Add blog posts
Blog posts are simply the articles you post on your blog. So, to add your first post:
Go to your blog and then go again and click on publish.

2) Change the blog title
To change the blog title, just go to Customize and click on Site Identity.

3) Create menu
Go to Customize again and then click Menu. Now create a new menu and then choose the location.
You can also add pages to the menu, such as the About and Contact page.

4) Add category pages to the menu
The small tags in blog posts are the categories. To add it to the menu, you must first create them. Then, go to a blog post and then add a new category. Once created, you can add them to the menu.

5) Add content to the About page
A page about is important because it tells readers about you. To add that, just go to the About page and click Edit.

6) Add contact form
A contact form helps your readers get in touch with you. To add a contact form, you must install an add-in. Now, an add-on helps you add new features to your blog.

These buttons will make it easier for your readers to share the articles.

9) Add on the author's section (below all blog posts)
This section will help your readers know about the person who wrote the article. So, to add that, you must go to your Board. And then go to users and update your profile.

10) Add About me section (in the sidebar)
Install a plug-in called Meks Smart Author Widget. Once activated, you must go to the appearance and then click on Widgets.
A widget page is where you can add / remove small features in your blog. Now, look for the Meks Smart Author widget and then drag and drop it on the sidebar of the post.

11) Add social media links (in the sidebar)
Install a plug-in called Meks Smart Social Widget. Once activated, just go to the widgets and then add the smart social widget to the sidebar.
