Blogging 101: Getting Started

Attention, Student Bloggers

This is the second post in my Blogging 101 Series. If you missed last week’s Introduction post, be sure to go back and read it!

Assignment #4: Make Up a Password

You will need a password that you can remember but that no one else will be able to guess. For tips, read How To Make (and Remember!) a Strong Password.

Parents can be useful, so be sure to share your password with them. The password lets them get onto your blog to proofread your posts (as I said, very useful 🙂 ), remove offensive comments, delete spam, etc.

NEVER share your password with ANYONE except your parents!

Assignment #5: Sign Up for a WordPress.com Account

Follow the instructions in the video above.

Remember: Do NOT put your real name in the optional Profile section! You may leave those boxes blank, if you wish — but if you do enter information, be sure to follow the internet safety rules.
