What To Do After Installing WordPress?

After installing WordPress on your hosting, there are some must do list of things that you need to do in order to sky rocket your blog.

Installing a blog and launching it right away wouldn’t be the wisest thing to do. You first have to tweak your blog and make it look presentably, not only for yourself, but also for your blog readers.

I am really trying to target new bloggers in this article on what they should after installing WordPress.


Tips On How To Sky Rocket A New Blog

My blog is doing really great and many bloggers are really impressed with the achievement of my blog so far. I am also happy with this level of achievement and I am going to be achieving many more great things to come in the future.

This is because I have put in a lot of work into this blog because I am determined to make my blog a success and to educate others on how they can make their blog a success as well.

In this post I am going to share with you what I did to get this blog off to a really great start. Getting this blog to where it’s at now was a lovely but challenging journey.

First Step To My Success

In order to get this level of success you have to take the word free out of my mind. This is the reason why I am on a WordPress self hosted blog. There is nothing better than self hosted and this is one of the 5 common mistakes new bloggers make.

I remember being on free hosting and waking up one morning to find my blog deleted with all my blog posts. All my articles were gone, never to be seen again. So my tip for you is to stay away from free hosting of all sort.


BlogEngage For Thesis Theme

I recently spoke about BlogEngage being a must for all bloggers. But when I was installing the blog engage button I encountered a small problem but this was over come easily with a few codings that I placed in my Thesis Theme.

The problem was this, when I went to the settings of the BlogEngage there is only one option to align where you want to place your button.
These options for alignments are:

  • Top Left
  • Top Right
  • Bottom Left
  • Bottom Right
  • None
  • After I selected the top left (because that’s where I wanted my button to be displayed) I notice an error in my Thesis teaser section.
