Setting up a gardening blog

LavenderSetting up a new blog is indeed quite a challenge for me. First you have to decide what you want to do with your blog, then there is the choice of blogging software, then you need a theme (design) and then you need to set it all up and add some blog posts to get it going.

For this blog I chose to use wordpress (only because I know it faily well, but it is still a challenge for a techno-phobe like myself to set it all up, not to forget that I am quite a dinosaur in age compared to those that do this well and quickly!). The installation and set up is all fairly simple, it’s the more intricate details that get to me.

But I have it set up now and hope this will give us many hours of blogging satisfation in the future …
