In this video, I’ll show you exactly how to make a website with WordPress. We’ll use the beautiful Sensible theme, and install several WordPress plugins that add functionality to your site.
If you don't like the color that we use in the tutorial, it's very easy to change, and I show you exactly how to do so in Step 10.
As I record the video, I’m instructing my 9 year old son, and it will be the second WordPress website he’s ever built. So I figure, if he can do it, then you should be able to follow along and build your own website. :)
If you don’t have a website hosting provider yet, I highly recommend SiteGround. When you sign up for SiteGround, it’d help me out if you use the following link or the one I provide in the video.
If you’re not sure which host is right for your, I’ve created a page that compares the top 10 web hosts that you can check out here:
There are 10 simple steps that we’ll take as we create your WordPress website. You can find them below with links to each step.
