I want to be a blog, I want to be about education, or if you want to be something from here you can choose, or you can search here. Education Continue What will be the name of my blog? I don’t know,something random. because this is just something demonstratively. Now let’s choose the domain name, let’s be something random to Let’s see what we have with education. Let’s choose this one because it’s free. It’s not the best domain name but it’s okay Now,I think no one wats to pay 4$,8$,25$ or 45$ so we’ll chose the free option. We’ll wait a minute. And it brings us to our first page Let’s see how it looks It’s looking like this,something very simple,very basic Let’s click “Visit site” button, to see how the people will see our site. You can close this thing. It will look like this. Now,there are three buttons but we’ll use only two of them very often Customise and edit. If we click customise, it will take us to a page, where we can edit the page antet. Let’s put some menus first, click on “Primary” here we have “Home” and “blog feed” But if we deselect this cell, We won’t be able to see those pages on the menu bar Now we have here two pages, Home and Blog feed We can change the names I don’t know,you can change it with “acasă”(means home in romanian) instead of “home”. And we can change the name “Blog feed” with “Postări recente”(means recent posts in romanian). Like this. If I want to add another menu, and I want to put the name “Photos”, click on add and now I have the page “Photos”, I can move it,which to be the first and which to be the last one. I prefer to let it like this. Click on save to save the changes. Now it’s saving and we’ll can work on the next page. It says saved so it’s been saved. Now click on site identity, here we can choose a logo I recommend to don’t put a logo because it will gonna look ugly. The title, a tagline,I don’t know… Text:”Learn easier!” I don’t know something like this. From here you can import some icons. How to looks… by the way, it shows this footer, Blog at WordPress.com And we can choose from multiple types of footers If we want to hide this footer, we’ll have to pay for this feature, so,it’s good like this anyway You can add a logo, it will take you to a page where you can create a logo. You can also insert a photo I can choose something from my device, or if I uploaded in the past other photos, you can choose from there I can crop the image,make it smaller or bigger, to be seen, exactly what I want to be seen Cause I want to be seen just one part of that photo Click on crop image, and we’ve almost done. Now everytime someone will open our site, he will se this icon It’s pretty cute If you want to create a professional website, you can add here your business logo instead putting somewhere around here and looking ugly Okay Click on save changes Now it’s been saved I don’t think you’ll play here Here you can select which will be your home page, where will be uploaded the posts. You can leave it like this. You can add widgets too We can add something from archives,audio, different things,a calendar, contact info and a map There are lots of things, gallery,Google Translate,I don’t know why you’ll need Translate,but you can do it I think that it’s all for the customise page, because the CSS option it’s allowed fot the premium plan only, and we want to make a website for free. Now we’ll going back and choose the edit option It will open a menu also in the edit section, but this time it will be in the right side And here it is,click next for there or you can read this tips You can change the layout if you click on change layout click on change. We can also chage the name from up there I prefer to let this empty Here we can change the title and here we can change the size of the title heading 1,2.3..and all the way to 6 means how big to be the title H6 means very small the closer will be to 1, the larger will be the text Here it’s some random text we can change it or delete it just click on remove block and it will delete the whole block. And now I want to write something click on + button and we have here more options like paragraph or heading if you want to write a title. Let’s choose paragraph, write something. If you press enter,it will create another paragraph below. Like this. You can do more things. I can edit what it’s written here or delete it. I don’t like what I wrote here,I’ll delete it. There are lots options. I don’t think I’ll gonna need this but I’ll let it here. You can click on the “show total subscribers” button Let’s see what we have here. Page Break,paragraph,image,heading,gallery, audio,cover… the most used options that you’ll use it will be paragraph,image,heading,gallery, audio maybe if you want to build a site where you’ll upload some podcasts. You’ll also use lots of buttons, at least I use lots of buttons, you’ll also use separators,media and text… Now let’s show you how to use a button I want to write here…I don’t know…Google And now are we done?Well,no Click on this button to put the link in our case we’ll write Google’s link adress I mean www.google.com Now press enter And now every time when someone will click on this link it will get to the Google page If you want to sent that person to a specific site,just copy and paste it here. It’s pretty simple. Now let’s show you how to insert a gallery You can upload photos from your device or from media library I think I have some photos on my laptop To select multiple photos just press the Ctrl key on your keyboard and select the photos you want to insert on your site Now I have the photos. I can add other photos or I can write here something. text:”Random photos” Like this. Now let’s insert just one image. By the way,you canadd photos using the URL. If I google sun,in the image section open a sun photos and with left click select view image, and copy the URL, I copy it using Ctrl+C, and you paste it here using Ctrl+V, now press enter or click to this button, it will insert the photo You can resize the photo you can move it to the right or left from up here.

So it can’t convert the youtube clips into audio. For inserting video you have more options You can insert video from your device I don’t have videos on my laptop or you can use the URL, just like we did earlier. I’ll actually insert it here. And now I have the same video two times What you’ll use more often? Heading but you know already how to use it. Let’s chose from here heading 3 to be smaller Like this. That’s pretty much all. You can choose from colors, what color will have the text. I’ll chose something random again. Now let’s save the changes we’ve made It’s simple. Let’s click preview to see how will look like.
