    Hi there Greg, what an amazing video!! Thank you so much, you really are so helpful for a newbie setting up a blog!
    One thing I'm a bit stuck on is my Facebook widget visual doesn't fit my text box in the side bar. I clicked the option on the face book like code page to fit plugin box but Its not worked. The link works but the visual doesn't fit the box properly. Any ideas what size I should change it to or where i can find out the size of the box on WordPress so that i can custom edit it?
    Thanks, Amelia

    I'm trying to make a blog following your video, and I tried a video before this and I ran into a problem with plugins and it seems this video has me run into the same problem too. Maybe its because its no longer 2014 so things have changed. I set up a blog on wordpress.com and it wont let me install plugins unless I upgrade to the business plan which is a lot of money for me. I did some research and from my understanding wordpress.org will let users install plug ins and the price is not unreasonable. Ive been watching this video because it says (wordpress.org tutorial) but ive not yet caught on to how its wordpress.org?? It looks like my wordpress.com does. I appreciate this video, and would also love some advice. Thanks!

    Mate I'd like some help, I have a blog with WordPress.com, the premium version, I later realised that I haven't got much plugins with the dot com version, so I signed up for a .org version but I have no clue how to use it (P.s. I've paid for hosting on Siteground.com) my question is, how do I move my blog from .com to .org, Like i serious dot understand the .org version everytime I watch a vid it comes up different to how min comes up

  19. Hexigonz says:

    Update in 2017. Things still work very similarly. I've done wordpress work for some clients, just needed the hosting solution. Issue is, the new domain says it will take 48 hours to propagate. So I guess I'll get started Monday night

  20. Daisy says:

    so if i'm creating a blog on WordPress.org, I only have to pay for the hosting website, right?

  21. Tania Smith says:

    Do you have to have downloaded anything from wordpress.org before you start, or does it do it automatically when you sign up on hostgator with the 'quick install option'? Thanks

    Greg, I got no link to cPanel in my welcome message from HostGator, and when I called them they said my account is pending and it will take a couple of hours before they'll send me a link to cPanel. Is this normal or a problem?

    Hi Greg. I decided to listen/watch the video and actually do it step by step along with you. I've been surprisingly successful! Thank you for making it so easy!
    My question is about Amazon. I added banner ads to my page for specific products but my question is how can I get those banner ads only to appear on a specific page? It seems to only offer "page" as a choice vs "post" and then the banner ad comes up on all the pages. I would rather do banner ads specific to each page. Take a look at what your help, helped me to do!

  35. Laurie says:

    Thank you for your detailed video…but that's a lot of information for my 46 year old brain to remember. Do you have any sort of written outline which goes through each of the steps in your video? I started trying to make notes but stopped when it became too much information to track. Thank you in advance!
