@widianothman Thought I’d throw in another great resource here, even though you’ve already gotten lots of good advice. : )
(by the way, @kristi-hines blog post linked up above is great — really comprehensive and simple to understand!)
One other resource I’d like to throw out there is a series of 4 very short videos by David Risley on how to set up a blog in 4 steps. I was a student in David’s Blog Masters Club a few years ago, and I can personally recommend his easy to understand — and implement — instructions.
Here’s a link to his blog set up guide, with a video corresponding to each of the 4 steps (1-buy a domain, 2-get web hosting, 3-set up Wordpress.org, and 4-pick a theme) :
All 4 videos together will take less than half an hour to watch.
