This is the final part of the three part series into how to set up a wordpress blog. If you missed part one, you can view it by clicking here and if you missed part two you can view it by clicking here.

So now comes the FUN PART and from here on its all about stamping your personality and your content on your own Blog. One of the best features of owning a WordPress Blog is the variety of PLUG INS you can add to your blog that add funcitionality at the touch of a button. As I favour the THESIS THEME one of the best plug ins you can add is the THESIS OPEN HOOK plug in which is a simple click to install function.

In this video I am going to show you how easy it is to install a plug in to your new Blog.

The essential plug ins for your WordPress Blog would include:-

ALL IN ONE SEO PACK

WORDPRESS.COM STATS (you will need your API key for this, just follow the "where to find your API key instructions from WordPress)

AKISMET

Some FUN additions that make life easier for you :-

THESIS OPEN HOOK *for Thesis Themes only

ULTIMATE PLUG INS SMART UPDATE PINGER

WHAT WOULD SETH GODIN DO

SHOCKINGLY SIMPLE FAVICON

The next stumbling block people will come across is a Blog Header Design. As you can see mine are all fairly similar as that is what I can do at this stage, but in essence it is a lot easier than you think when you have a few tools to hand. *Tip from Mike Dillard's Traffic Formula 2.0 course is to make sure your vistors know what your Blog is about IN your header.

In this video I will show you how I use a two step process for any graphics I design using Microsoft Publisher (you can use a photo editor in the same way) followed by my favourite tool Snaggit ( from Tech Smith the makers of Camtasia ) which retails around £40.00 so it's not going to break the bank.

Here's how to create a simple Blog Header :-

There are plenty of photo editors that create the same effect for the background and with Snaggit you can add all sorts of enhancements to make your designs look unique and professional. So when you have your design, your next task is to upoad it to the top of your Blog which depending on your Theme may or may not be an option, but with Thesis they come to the rescue once again with their Thesis Open Hook plug in.

In this last video of this mini series I am going to show you how to "manipulate" HTML code to allow you to be able to do things you probably think are totally beyond you right now. This shows you how to use Microsoft Front Page to get your HTML code for uploading your header and I will demonstrate how to add a banner to your Blog using HTML code once again.

Be brave and be confident on this one to follow it through :-

The Blog being developed for this demonstration is the Go Big Or Go Home Team Membership Blog which will be a central hub for members of our team packed with tutorials on marketing a online home based business.
