If you just started a spandy new WordPress blog or site and want to work on setup and configuration in your spare time, we’ve recently refreshed a resource that might be just the thing for you: learn.wordpress.com.
Have you just created a blog or website to:
- Showcase a personal project? Maybe you’re working on a photo-a-day project, some short stories, poetry, or a memoir?
- Highlight your business’ offerings and attract new customers?
- Promote an organization and want to know how to get connected to potential supporters on social media?
No matter the reason you created that new site, learn.wordpress.com is standing by. Here’s a bit of what’s on offer to help you create a site that is uniquely you.
Get Started: passwords and profiles
Regardless of whether you’ve got a blog or website, you’ll want to have a strong password and complete your online profile. Get Started, in addition to telling you a bit about our paid plans, will walk you through both.
Get Personality: picking a theme
You want your online home to reflect your personality or in the case of a business or organization, its brand. WordPress.com has over 350 themes (some paid and some free). In Get Personality, you’ll learn how to search and filter themes based on their aesthetic qualities and features. You’ll also learn how to preview themes and activate the perfect one for your site.
Get Configured: headers, fonts, and colors
Once you’ve got a theme that’s “you,” you might want to make that theme unique by creating a custom header, revamping the color scheme, and choosing some custom fonts that add precisely the right touch. Get Configured will show you the ropes.
