In this tutorial, i’m going to show you how to make a WordPress blog step by step.
You’ll be in position to build everything by just dragging and dropping elements using Elementor page builder. So you don’t need to have any prior knowing in creating websites.

You’ll be in position to write, publish and edit your blogs. Including adding images, videos and a lot more.

You’ll be in position to create a contact form for your visitor to write to you and I’ll show you how to create a professional email under your website/blog name. Something like your name @yourwebsite.com

I’ll also show you how to create a header, footer, blog pages, a call to action, create a popup and how to install, active and use themes and plugins in WordPress.
