How to start a blog with WordPress

How does WordPress work?

I have no idea. I mean, I had no idea until some time ago. During the last year I faced up intensively with Danas blog and almost everything that has to do with it. So, I learned a lot a about photography, picture editing and blog marketing. But I had nothing to do with the blog itself – that has been all alone Danas part. My part was more like telling her what she could do better (preferably very quickly) to round out the total impression. Do this, do that, here’s something that needs to be changed, make it this way, make it that way… pretty mean!

oday I have do admit that I have great respect for how good she’s doing her work. Honestly, my respect grows from day to day, I raise my hat to her, bow to her over and over again, while I shrink and shrink and shrink…

How to start a blog with wordpress

If you decide for a self hosted WordPress blog, you should be aware of the fact that you really need to work your way into it first, especially into the backend. Backend? Sounds like the handsome soccer player. Well, similar. So what’s this backend? It’s the opposite of the front end. The front end is the part you see when you type in an address into any browser. So, the backend is the backstage part of your WordPress site where you get everything that can be seen in the front end ready. That’s not really difficult after all, but you need a little time and patience to understand how it works. But it’s worth it! And it’s kinda fun, because it’s like a Kinder egg, just without chocolate. What a pity!

But most of all WordPress has a lot of advantages against other weblog publishing tools.

Those of you, who already run a blog with any other weblog publishing tool, may notice over time, that the possibilities to configure the blog are limited. Meanwhile I know a lot of bloggers who would love to move their blogs to WordPress, but most of them are afraid of the work.

So, why WordPress?

There are many reasons to decide for WordPress. First reason is the almost unrestricted flexibility. WordPress is a software that allows to add countless functions by installing plugins. You can compare plugins to apps on your mobile phone. There a several plugins for several functions. And these plugins do crazy things, both in the front end and in the backend. And even if you don’t install any plugin, you’ve got a lot of functions to customize your blog at WordPress itself.

Another reason (and also requirement) is that you have your own webspace. If you like to use WordPress, you need to book webspace from a web hosting company. Sounds confusing? It is, if you’ve never heard of before.

A web hosting company is a company that offers webspace for the contents and databases from websites. Maybe you’ve already heard of Host Europe, Strato or All Inkl. You didn’t? No problem! You can again compare that to your mobile phone. But instead of anytime minutes and volume of data you book webspace for your blog from a web hosting company. So that’s the piece of ground where you can build your house / your blog. Don’t worry, that’s not expensive and you can book additional space at any time.

The combination of WordPress and booked webspace means boundless freedom. Free like a bird and that sort of things, you know!?

But let’s get back to the topic. What do I have to do to start my blog with WordPress?

How do I set my own WordPress site?

To me, that’s the most sensible chronological order (and I’m pretty smart):

  1. Find a name for your blog and figure out if your name (www.myblog.com) is available. Google is your friend!
  2. If your requested name is available, you can directly book it at any web hosting company.
  3. You can simultaneously book your webspace. Most of the web hosting companies have different packages for that. For the beginning one of the smaller packages should be enough. Dana and me both booked this package from Host Europe. That’s not too expensive and has (for most blogs) enough memory.
  4. Now you need to fight your way through the backend of your web hosting company. Host Europe is very well-reputed, but it’s backend is a little tricky.
    It can happen that you miss the forrest for the trees. But since you’re a really cool hacker nerd right now, you can do that! Dana did that all by her own and I had a little help from a friend (because I had been too lazy). After your webspace got connected with your domain, your database got installed and you did set up at least one e-mail address, you’re ready for the next step.
  5. You need to download the current WordPress version at WordPress.org now. Don’t wonder that you get a ZIP file here. And watch out – don’t mistake WordPress.com for WordPress.org. Because WordPress.com is just another weblog publishing tool. That means with WordPress.com you aren’t free like a bird!

  6. If you’ve got the WordPress.org Zip file downloaded, you now have to install it. But unfortunately that works a little different from what you may know. Double-click doesn’t work. You need to get the files from your ZIP file into your database. So, in the backend of your web hosting company you need to set up a FTP access first. To get the files into your database you also need a FTP program – you can download one from the internet. I, for example use Cyberduck. Just imagine this FTP program js like a door to your database – after getting the files through the door, you’re almost done! WordPress is alive! And it has it’s own address – your domain. But for now, you are the only one that’s allowed to enter – that’s why you need to choose a password now.
  7. Now you can start to furnish your new house. First you have to choose a theme you like. That relates to the design as well as to the functionality. Not every theme has every  functions. Of course you can change everything, but you need to have some program skills for that. That I don’t have. And that’s why I searched for my theme for days. But WordPress itself already has a lot of nice themes and you can easily install and test them. Maybe you already find something you like. They’re free and they work. I decided to search a little longer and finally I bought a theme at themeforrest.com. I only did that because I had an exact idea of how the theme should look like and didn’t want to make too many changes. After a lot of „Could be worse“ themes – Bingo! Whoopee!
    how to start a blog with wordpress
  8. Your basement is done. But you’ll not get around learning the ropes of WordPress and it’s functionality. That could be a little confusing in the beginning. But as soon as you understand how things work you’ve got the power. The backend is your head quarter, your command center. Theoretically you can create everything you’ve seen on other websites or blogs before and soon you’re going to be able to program a little by yourself. I already notice that after some weeks of getting used to WordPress, although programming isn’t my cup of tea at all.
  9. Be patient and don’t give up! I didn’t manage to do so all the time and it almost took me three weeks now to get my blog started. And I must confess I had a little help. From my buddies Dana and Davor (yes, that’s a name). Davor totally has it when it comes to programming. He helped me so much with the installation and these kind of stuff. Dana especially helped me to find my way through the WordPress backend. I’m still bowing, I’m already buckled. What I’m trying to say: If you know anybody, who may know a thing or two about WordPress, don’t hesitate to ask for help. It will make it a lot more easier for you. Because in the end, you’re here to blog, not to hack. Especially when it comes to the installation thing – you’ll never have to deal with it again. If you don’t know anybody, it could be also very helpful to engage a professional. Of course, you have to pay for that service, but going grey and needing to overdye it for the rest of your life probably is even more expensive.

And what’s next?

I have no idea, what you’re doing next. I’ll keep on working on new blogposts. Because I’m an absolute beginner in writing. In this category „Wordpress“ my friend Davor and me are going to alternate with writing blogposts. I’ll share my „beginner“ experiences with you here.

Davor will write some step by step tutorials for you from time to time, to give you a little help. But you can also contact him on his site blogpolish.de. He offers his services as a professional – for very friendly prices. I really can commend him highly! I don’t know any nicer person than this Davor with his strange name. :) Dana is the only one I like even more.

  • Hi Bene, wie ist das dann bei mir? Ich war oder bin auf Blogspot und habe mich nun auf WordPress mit einem neuen Blog breit gemacht, aber ich bin nicht auf org gegangen und so steht das “WordPress” bei mit noch dabei :-( Muss ich den Blog dann wieder neu aufziehen, wenn ich das WordPress weg haben möchte? LG

    • Hi! Also wenn Du einen Blog bei wordpress.com hast, hast du erstmal nicht wirklich viel mehr Möglichkeiten, als bei Blogspot und die Endung .wordpress ist immer mit dabei. Hier kannst Du auch nur begrenzt Themes und Plugins nutzen. Allerdings ist der Umzug von worpress.com zu wordpress.org relativ unkompliziert. Du kannst bei wordpress.com deine Inhalte exportieren und in deiner selbstgehosteten WordPress Seite wieder importieren. Zuvor musst du aber tatsächlich erst mal die ganzen Schritte vollziehen, die ich in meinem Artikel beschreibe. Wichtig fürs Verständnis ist glaube ich, dass wordpress.com und wordpress.org zwei völlig unterschiedliche Ansätze zum Bloggen anbieten. Ich werde zu dem Thema zusammen mit Davor (meinem Programmierer) demnächst einen Screencast hier auf meinem Blog hochladen, in dem wir alles einmal Schritt für Schritt durchgehen werden. Bis dahin helfen dir vielleicht diese beiden Links weiter:

      http://www.wasmachtheli.com/2013/01/28/umzug-wordpress-com-zu-wordpress-org-so-habe-ich-es-gemacht/

      Ich hoffe, ich konnte dir fürs Erste helfen. Lass dich nicht von dem ganzen Kram abschrecken. Am Ende bist du in jeder Hinsicht freier, wenn du deinen Blog auf einer eigenen Domain laufen hast. Bis bald

      P.S.: Du kannst übrigens ganz einfach dein aktuelles Blog auf eine neue WordPressseite umleiten, sodass dir keine Leser verloren gehen.

  • du hast dir wirklich einen tollen blog aufgebaut, dein schreibstil ist wirklich super! die tipps sind toll, ich bin momentan auch am überlegen, zu wordpress umzuziehen um endlich ein template zu haben, was mir wirklich gefällt :) bin gespannt auf deine nächsten posts :)

    • Hi Kati,
      das ist das schönste Kompliment, das du mir hättest machen können :) Schreiben in dieser Form ist völlig neu für mich und der einzige Punkt, in dem ich mich noch etwas unsicher fühle. Danke!!! Ich kann wirklich nur jedem empfehlen mit WordPress zu arbeiten, weil man wirklich alles umsetzen kann, was man möchte. Für dein zukünftiges Template (Theme) kannst du dich auch ohne eine bestehende WordPressinstallation inspirieren lassen. Ich habe dir mal zwei links zum Stöbern unten eingefügt. Bei Worpress selbst klickst du auf ein Theme und dann auf “Preview”, bei themeforest.net auf “live Demo”. So kannst du schon mal schauen, was es so alles gibt. Kleine Warnung: Es gibt unendlich viele Themes :) Achte bei der Suche auf jeden Fall drauf, dass ein Theme “responsive” ist. Sonst verliebst du dich am Ende in eines, das auf Handys nicht gut funktioniert! Je näher ein ausgewähltes Theme bereits dem entspricht, was du suchst, desto weniger musst du am ende anpassen (lassen). Viel Spass beim ausprobieren!

      P.S.: Mein Partner in Crime von Blogpolish.de bietet unter anderem auch den Umzug von anderen Plattformen zu Worpress an. Seine Seite sollte spätestens Mitte nächster Woche online sein. Schau einfach mal vorbei.

  • Doctors have many challenges to face as they are perennially surrounded by patients, diseases, hospital duties and over-extended or odd shift timings. Universally, doctor is considered to be a noble profession and respectable one at that, but a doctor also has to work under immense pressures, emotional strains and other physical challenges.

    A regular physician like most of us at some point face will have to deal with personal situations such as important family affairs, family holidays, sickness or pregnancy that may force them to abandon medical duties. At the same time, a hospital or a healthcare facility is also constantly faced with emergency situations that demand all hands on deck round-the-clock. Therefore, every hospital, clinic or nursing home is compelled to hire locum tenens or substitute doctor in order to keep the staffing under control at all times.

    In fact, locum doctors are the most valuable asset for the medical community because they provide quality medical care and act as a helping-hand in emergency situations when the medical facilities need them the most.

    Unlike regular or permanent doctors, locum doctor jobs are also ideal career options for medical interns and graduates because they offer a wide array of medical exposure in varied medical specialties, work cultures and healthcare systems. Locum jobs are challenging and flexible, thus an increasing number of medical professionals have benefitted from these jobs, so whether one is looking for a family physicians position or in a hospital or in a clinic, locum jobs for doctors are available at all levels and in different healthcare systems.

    In addition, being a locum doctor gives a medical professional the control over their working hours, location of work and choice of area of specialisation. Technically, locum positions are not restricted to general physicians but they are also extended to other fields of medical specialisations such as cardiology, neurology and many more.

    Travelling can be an integral part of locum jobs, and these distinctive features are a boon for many dedicated medical professionals who are eager to expand their medical careers with loads of multi-cultural medical experiences. The fact that locum agencies in the UK recruit tens of thousands of locums from across the globe in various NHS hospitals, private clinics, nursing homes and other public hospitals speaks volume of the popularity of locum jobs.

    Locating or getting a locum tenens job is a simple task as long as you are registered with one of the many reputable locum agencies. These agencies act as the middle man between locum tenens and medical facilities, and they also look after all the details pertaining to travel for locum tenens, accommodation and the nature of locum work.

    Thus, maintaining a healthy locum doctor-agency relationship benefits both the parties, and it also increases the probability of getting recommendable employment opportunities and businesses or vice-versa.
