I’ve installed WordPress — now what?

A lot of you have been watching my “How to install WordPress in less than 10 minutes” video, but I’ve been asked the same question a few times: “After I install it, then what?”

This short video will show you some of the next steps I take after I’ve installed WordPress to help make the site ready for prime time — setting up comment features, permalinks, etc.

If you need additional help with your blog, I’m continuing to add more videos to my “Simple WordPress Tutorials” post, so check it out.  If you’re trying to do something that isn’t listed on that page, let me know and I’ll create a screencast for you.

Update: This video can now also be found at A Brighter Web.
