    When you install Wordpress - go to posts on the dashboard and put a blog on it.

    Do you have a domain name and hosting and hopefully you have Cpanel where you can upload Wordpress?

    Wordpress is a platform for your blog. You can start a free blog on wordpress.com. Because they host it you don't really "own" your website.

    If you want to own your blog you will still use Wordpress but it is wordpress.org (confusing isn't it? but don't worry about it) Get a web host such as Hostgator or Bluehost (Bluehost will give you a free domain name if you go with them).

    When you purchase the web hosting with either of these companies setting up a blog is a 3 click procedure. Really simple.

    If you need help you can pm me.

    I have recommended this to several people who want to get cheap video training several times, and you get 100 different videos, ranging from learning FTP, WordPress, installing plug-ins, it covers a sh#tload of stuff, and was created by a warrior; Aaron.

    Anyway, people probably think the site graphics are too cartoonish and the names a bit cheesy (and probably so) but look at this: MeKnowWordPress.com -Scroll down the page and look at the modules included, there's a boatload of valuable info.

    *Costs $17 w/ 100% affiliate commissions should you decide later to promote it. No affiliate link here of course, just remember when I didn't know FTP, and a lot of other tech stuff.

    I bought it many moons ago, and it saved me a ton of time, questions, searching youtube, etc... and I made 10x my money back, as I used to promote it

    Good Luck.

    All the Best,

    If you just need a fresh new blog, it seems WordPress default value is suited you. If you need a blog to add to existing site, WordPress is also could do the trick.
    You don't need plugins create a blog; WordPress itself is doable.

    I just wanna tell you that most of the links in the signature are trash and/or a trap to make you pay!

    I use TypePad, Weebly, and some others, because I don't like WordPress and find it very difficult, time-consuming, problematic, unnecessary and user-unfriendly, by comparison with the other content management systems I've seen and used.

    WordPress along with a WordPress theme is beautiful. You may be looking at OptimizePress.

    As everyone else above mentioned, I would also say that wordpress is one of the best and most popular platform for blogging ...

    With regards to the plugin question, am not sure what you are trying to achieve ? It would help if you could be more specific of the goals that you would like to achieve? As there are tons of plugins available for any reason whatsoever.

    For FTP, you could download and use Filezilla, it's a free open source software - FileZilla - Client Download

    Also, try playing around with wordpress, plugins, ftp etc. and you 'll get a lot to learn .. Good luck!
