The Newbie Guide to Blogging With WordPress And Autism

4 months ago I had never heard of a blog.

Not only that, I had no computer skills whatsoever.

I decided to do some research and my goal was to have my own website and my very own blog.

I have a passion for writing, I found it late in life at the age of 50, but better late than never is my motto.

I had written over 80,000 words, and they just kept coming. 

I needed an outlet for these words and this is how I found the blogging world.

In general, I have found the blogging community to be great. 

Full of helpful friendly people who readily give you advice, from things that they themselves have learned along the way. 

Because of the help and advice given by other bloggers, and my own research, I now have my blog up and running, and I am the proud owner of my very own piece of cyberspace.

My first step was to purchase a computer. 

Doing research I came across WordPress.com 

It looked professional, and it had great reviews from other bloggers. 

This is where my blogging journey began. 

WordPress has been a life saver for me, as somebody with very few computer skills, and a completely different way of learning.

I have Autism and needed a lot of support from the tech guys at WordPress, their customer service was second to none.

WordPress will guide you every step of the way. I didn’t even know what a cache was until a helpful agent from WordPress told me. They are extremely patient, and take time to listen to your technical issues.

If like me you would love to blog but feel you don’t have the technical skills, this is the perfect site to do it. 

Blogging can earn you money from the comfort of your own home, doing something that you love. That was incentive enough for me to want to learn about this blogging thing. I haven’t started on the monetary side of things yet, as I am still basking in the glory of my achievements on the blogging scene for now, the rest will come later. 

If I can do it, then anybody can… I learn something new every day, and love to share my stories. Stories are meant to be shared love Betty x
