How to create a WordPress blog (step by step + videos)

Written by Alex Denning on in Tutorials 0 comments

Learning how to create a WordPress blog is an ideal way to get your online journey started. At WPZOOM we’ve been making WordPress themes for the last decade, and we’re often people’s first point of contact with WordPress.

The steps to create a WordPress blog are relatively straightforward, but some parts are slightly unintuitive, and a guide will make the whole process much easier for you.

This step-by-step guide, with accompanying videos, will make sure whether you’re new to WordPress – or want a website but don’t know where to start – you’re in good hands.

We’re going to cover all the steps needed to create a WordPress blog: from choosing a website name, to getting hosting, installing WordPress, adding a quality design (theme), and then getting your site up and running. Continue Reading

Our first WordCamp sponsorship in-person: reporting on WordCamp Bucharest 2017

Written by Alex Denning on in News 1 comment

This weekend was the second year running of WordCamp Bucharest, and our the first time we’ve sponsored a WordCamp in-person. It was also a chance for the whole of the WPZOOM European team to meet up.

WPZOOM has been selling premium WordPress themes since 2009. Half the team is based in Chisinau, Moldova, with the rest distributed globally – I work remotely part-time from the UK.

With no WordCamp in Chisinau (although we’ve recently started a meetup here), WordCamp Bucharest is effectively our “home” WordCamp. We didn’t make it last year, but this year wanted to attend, sponsor, and take the opportunity to get all the Europe-based team in one place. Continue Reading
