1. Install WordPress
This is very easy, the Bluehost dash will give you a simple installation wizard.
If you do not see this option, which you should, then you simply select the my sites option.

This is pretty simple and can be changed later if you want to really think about your taglines etc. After filling in the site name and tagline please click next.

All WordPress sites are represented online with a theme. Think of a theme as clothing, there are so many different looks and styles.

Important Tip: Skip and do not install Jetpack
Jetpack is a not something I would recommend you install on your fresh clean fast blog. It is a very heavy and unnecessary plugin, when prompted to install it, please click skip.
5. Welcome to WordPress -Business or Personal?
You will be asked to choose between Business and Personal for type of blog you are launching. I’d recommend business, as you are starting this as a serious opportunity to finally get that freedom. Choosing business will NOT cost you any money.
