    Especially for non-techies, the idea of setting up a blogging platform is intimidating on the surface. And yet. It still has to be done. Any inbound marketing strategy or effective online presence simply must blog.

    I love the bite-sized lessons behind this infographic: they put each step in context in a way that gets past obstacles. Very useful, thanks.

    There was no life before WordPress. I hope it continues to be the standard for blogging for a long time.

    wordpress is the ultimate savior for all those people who are looking to create a website or blog. its easy as pie and i believe, spreading the words using your infography would great.

    Nice infographic, but I think the “Behind The Scenes” section needs some tweaking. It says “Do you want your website to be slow” and “Do you love SPAM?” Answering YES moves you on and answering NO is a deadend. Not a big deal, but I’m just sayin… Anyway, good nfographic — these are questions I always ask myself when creating a new WordPress blog, its always been mental questions and never spelled out like this. Good job.

    Great infographic. You covered all the basics in a very well designed, easy to see format. I specialize in WordPress websites for business. It’s one of the easiest content management systems to use. While it may have been used by bloggers way back when, more companies see the value of adding new content to their website for SEO purposes.
