Ch. 1 / Tutorial #2
This is the second tutorial in My WordPress Quick Start Guide. You should already have a free wordpress.com account with basic settings before you attempt this tutorial. If you do not already have a WordPress account linked to your email address, complete Tutorial #1, then return to this page.
Choosing and Applying a Site Theme
When you register for a wordpress.com account, a free theme is chosen for your Website by default. You can change this default to a different free theme without any additional cost. In this tutorial, you will choose a free theme and apply some basic customizations. We will be using only the basic automatic functions that are built into the theme you choose. Although you are on a free plan, there are still some pretty awesome options for your site. When you are ready to step up to a paid plan, refer to Chapter: Stepping Up to Premium.
