Setting up your blog

leave a comment »

As part of this module you will be required to submit your work and research process using some of the online tools that are the subject of the module itself.

We are suggesting, if you have not used these tools before, to begin with one of the most popular blogging tools called wordpress. WordPress is a free service and the code that drives it is open source.

You can easily set up and register your own blog free by going to www.wordpress.com and signing up for your own blog.

After pressing the sign up button you will be asked for a username that will become part of your wordpress address so it will be “username.wordpress.com”

Try and pick a username based on your own name add some numbers if it has already been taken. Choose a strong, memorable password that inclundes letters and numbers and within two minutes you will have a blog.

We will show you in the next session how to make use of it.
