“Earlier this year, WordPress passed the 24% mark, running almost a quarter of all websites — and for good reason. It has a loyal user base and scores of dedicated developers who bring better features to the system year round.

This article is for those of you who either are new to WordPress or are regular users who want to learn about the best way to run a WordPress website. We’ll be learning about working with domains, installing WordPress, managing content and using great plugins and themes to secure our website and make our content shine.”
The real reason I’m linking to this is so I can easily point people to this article. I get asked questions about setting up sites a lot, so thankfully someone else wrote a better guide than I could’ve.
