They all have one, in part, because the folks at WordPress make it easy to get one. but to actually build a good blog–to create a blog people want to read–takes thought, planning, and some effort. From picking a theme and using tags to choosing widgets and building a community, creating your blog really starts after you set it up. In this book by blogger extraordinaire Scott McNulty, you learn how to:

  • Install and get your WordPress blog running.
  • Set up your site to ensure it can easily grow with you and your readers.
  • Be the master of user accounts.
  • Manage your site with the WordPress Dashboard and extend its capabilities with plug-ins.
  • Make the most of images.
  • Work with pages, templates, and links and–of course–publish your posts.
  • Deal with comments–if you even want readers commenting at all.
  • Find a theme–or build one yourself.
  • Maintain your site and fix common problems.
