Creating a WordPress website Step By Step Guide

What is WordPress?
WordPress is an open source tool that is used to create and maintain websites. Open source is software whose source code is available for modification or enhancement. WordPress is very easy to use and maintain. It is used by both large, small, and independent companies as well an individuals. There are many large companies that use WordPress, CNN, TED, UPS, and NBC sports just to name a few. Installing WordPress is quite simple, and the installation only takes a few minutes. WordPress is a content management system. The term sounds really technical, but all it means is it’s a system used to manage the content of a Web site. Thus you can have more than just a blog. Sounds pretty cool, huh?

Today I am going to show you how to customize a WordPress site and get it up and running. I decided to do these simple instructions, because I have not noticed a simple set of instructions on how to begin once WordPress is installed. WordPress is extremely easy to use but you need to first understand the tools that WordPress gives you. When I first started developing websites with WordPress, I was confused and I had a really high learning curve. With these instructions I am hoping that you will be able to better understand WordPress and start making amazing websites.
