How to Get a WordPress Website

In this video I demonstrate how to get a WordPress Website/Blog. I go over hosting the website with WordPress.com (free) vs Self-hosting the site yourself (what some people refer to as WordPress.org). Most importantly I go over the limitations and “gotchas” of going with the free WordPress.com site IF you are wanting to monetize or run a business online. 

You might actually be surprised how easy it is to get your website up and running with WordPress!
