Creating a WordPress Username – Tutorial

A few people have been having a little trouble figuring out how to get themselves set up to interact on wordpress. Here is a tutorial on how to sign up for a username.

STEP ONE:

Head over to http://www.wordpress.com and click on the orange “sign up now” button on the right hand side.

STEP TWO:

Fill out all the information on the next page: a username, password, password confirmation, and primary email address. Click the button that says you have read the legal information. Then click “Just a Username, Please” (unless you want to start your own blog too, that’s up to you)

STEP THREE:

Check the primary email address that you entered during step two. WordPress.com should be sending you an email containing a link that you will need to click in order to activate your account. This is usually sent immediately, but could take a few minutes. As soon as you get the email, click the link inside of it.

STEP FOUR:

Send me an email at hinkle.travis @ gmail.com telling me which email address of yours you used to sign up during step 2. That is how I will be able to add you as an author on IUPainters. Once I am able to do that, you will automatically see IU Painters on your wordpress ‘Dashboard’ whenever you sign into wordpress.

That’s all there is to it!
