WordPress is by far the most popular blogging platform you can find in cyberspace. Countless of new WordPress based websites go live everyday and there are no signs of slowing down.
WordPress is reasonably easy to use, but it can be challenging to find your way through so many different themes, plugins and configuration settings, especially if you’ve never been through this process before. It’s easy enough to do a WordPress installation through your hosting provider, but what do you do after installing WordPress?
Having installed and configured WordPress on so many websites over the years, I’ve learned what works for me and what doesn’t work so well. I now simply follow a routine whenever I need to install WordPress, either for a website I own or for someone else.
