welcome to my blog. I’m going to teach you how to wordpress. we begin:
open blogger. click settings.
click other (basically I’m just making sure you know how to click haha)
Click more. I’ve circled what you should click. click itttt
save it before it’s gone or you’ll die (actually you won’t but whatever)
this is what should happen. It will download a file. Remember where it downloads to–you’ll need to know later. If this doesn’t happen YOU ARE CLEARLY DOING SOMETHING WRONG BECAUSE WHAT HOW COULD IT BE MY FAULT
open wordpress. click “get started” to *gasp* get started.
I mean, I’m not here to tell you what to do–OH WAIT I AM SO LISTEN UP. CLICK “START WITH A BLOG”
since I’m in charge and we handle the whole theme thing later, click skip for now
or face my wrath
jk I won’t hurt you haha
This is where you figure out what cute, funny, witty, awkward, cool name you want your blog to have STRESS OVER THIS BECAUSE IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE NAME YOU PICK YOU CAN STILL CHANGE IT LATER. then pick the free url because I’m cheap so you should be too.
IN CASE YOU MISSED THE MEMO CLICK ON THE FREE ONE BECAUSE WE ARE CHEAP
fill all this out then click “create my account”
go confirm your email address then continue.
bottom right corner. click CUSTOMIZE
click “Site identity”
add a name because that’s important. tagline it if you want to. Also if you plan on having text on your header later, uncheck the circled box.
CLICK THE X
up there. upper left corner. click “my site”
Click “themes”. DO NOT CLICK CUSTOMIZE IT WILL NOT LEAD YOU TO THE SPECIAL PLACE I AM TAKING YOU
WE’RE CHEAP DID YOU MISS THE MEMO SHEESH. CLICK FREE SO YOU ONLY SEE FREE THEMES AND YOU DON’T FALL IN LOVE WITH AN EXPENSIVE ONE
Okay, so obviously you can pick whatever theme you like(NO YOU CAN’T *GOLLUM* *GOLLUM*), but personally I recommend Dyad 2. It’s what I started out with. It’s easy to customize and make pretty, and easy to learn with.
click the little dots because I TOLD YOU TO
click “TRY & CUSTOMIZE” because I TOLD YOU TO AND CLEARLY I KNOW EVERYTHING
click header image if you want to have one. if you don’t want one whatever don’t listen.
you can use one of their images, or upload your own!
save and activate the theme!
Return to the stats page. scroll (ooh! learning new skills here!)
click settings JUST DO IT DON’T SASS ME
scroll again! ah! using those new skills we learned!
click that circled thing. BECAUSE I SAID SO
click “other importers”
run the importer! it will explode (jk it won’t)
CHOOSE A FILE ANY FILE (actually… (next step!))
remember that file we downloaded earlier?? find it and choose it!
You can customize a little more, add to your profile(upper right corner), read/find other blogs(upper left corner!), or write a post(halfway down the page and to the left) And now that you’ve made your wordpress blog, follow me! thank you and goodbye. I must sleep now (this was a ton of work to put together)
