available in the

get free designs when you create a blog site.
If you use Act Now Domains as your web host you can
see the Wordpress Directory from inside your blog control panel and their
system will automatically install the design you choose directly to your blog. That makes
it super easy for you to change your design and you won't have to
download and upload the design yourself.
Step 3: Add Your Blog
This is the fun part. You just
add your own content to your blog site which will make your blog unique.
You can add text, videos, pictures or anything else. It is very easy to do this part
even if you have no experience.
Here is an example screen shot that
shows just how easy it is to add a post to your blog. As you see,
it has many of the same buttons and sections that you see when you send
an email along with a few new ones that enable you to easily add images,
videos, music and so forth to your blog.
If you want to spice up your blog site you can do
it with plug ins. Plug ins are
mini-programs that can let you do a lot of cool things on your blog.
For example, there is a plug in that will automatically post tweets from
your Twitter account to your blog. Another plug in will turn your
blog into a social networking site.
These are really fun to use when you
create a blog site and can really liven up your blog. Best of all,
most of them are free. The best place to get blog plugins is the
Wordpress Plug Ins
Directory. It is totally FREE and provides access to over 13,000
really neat plug ins that you can add to your blog.
Just like the design above you can
install the plugins directly into your Act Now Domains Wordpress blog
with just a click of a button.
