Well, you got your business email, your fan email, your DomainName, Web Host and your Platform? Now what?
Open your WordPress (or whatever you got) and take the tutorial. Please take the tutorial! Don’t just play. When you finish your tutorial THEN you can play. You are writing in high level script not HTML so you can’t really break anything. Change Themes (you’ll find out) many times. Add menus and links. Make test posts. See it on the web. Write yourself test posts. Try all the links see what it does. Upload pictures (remember privacy, once it’s out there it’s out there!) and take them down. Play play play! Don’t try to make it beautiful, it all starts to make sense (kind of). I promise.
