We thought that for those who are not too familiar with computers and how to use Word Press that we would help you set up your blog account by writing a short guide:
If you visit the Word Press website by clicking on my link: https://en.wordpress.com/signup/
When you click on it you will see that you need to put a ‘blog address’. For your school it would be best. When you have chosen a blog address (the name of your school or team) then click on the option for ‘no thanks, I’ll use the free wordpress.com address’ if it appears.
Then you need to click on the username space and the same name will appear from your blog address. The next step is to choose a password and confirm it by typing it in again.
Lastly, you must enter an email address that you want to use to manage your blog – probably the one you are using now.
Once you have entered all the information you need to click on the blue ‘sign up’ button at the bottom.
You will then receive an email (remember to check your junk folder) which you must open and click on the link to activate your Word Press account.
Once you have activated your account you will then need to delete the welcome blog -hello world- and create your own new blog which tells the world about your school and your enterprise!
I hope this helps! There is also more information in the pack on pages 74-77 about how to write a blog.
Good luck and we hope to see your new blog soon!
