The look and feel

As part of branding purpose, I think it is important to present my blog with the right look and feel that will reflect the professionalism and gain visitor trust on the content I deliver. Hence, to do away the boring layout how may blog is displayed to visitors with the standard default setting, I need to change what is known as ‘theme’ in wordpress admin dashboard.

Many themes are available online for free, one of them is at http://wpmudev.org/project/Farms-100-big-ones-theme-pack

There are hundred of theme one can experiment with from the above site.

To change a wordpress theme, follow below steps:

1. Download the theme from the above mentioned site or any other themes you can find

2. Unzip the downloaded file

3. Upload the theme (the whole folder which contain the theme files) to your wordpress folder under public_html/wp-content/themes/

4. Log in to your wordpress admin dashboard, go to Design > Themes and select the uploaded theme

Happy testing :D

A humble beginning of my very first blog under my name :)

I’ve always thought blogging was a tedious work to begin with, lots of writing needed, lots of time spent unnecessarily, hence didn’t like the idea of creating my own blog, but not until recently, something happened…

You see, for a very long time, I’ve been trying to acquire a domain name under my own name, that’s JeffreyTang.com , but unfortunately it has been taken by some one else, but with a twist of fate, and with some efforts on my part, I’ve finally get it, YES !!! Hey, how did I manage to get it will be a story of another blog post, coming soon…

So long story short, with a domain name that I can finally call my own, it seems that the necessity to create a blog just come naturally, after doing some online research, I’ve finally get it started, it’s pretty easy indeed, though at this point of time, there’s nothing much to be shout about in this very first beginning of my blog creation, but at least I have got it started, that’s what count the most, and over time, things can be improved gradually.

How do I get it kick started the easy way, without much pain and time spent, but yet I’m pretty sure it is all done in the best possible way, just follow the video provided in the link below:
