The first thing to do is go straight to the WordPress Administration area under http://yoursite/wp-admin. Then go to SETTINGS > GENERAL and complete the following configuration tasks. See FIG A.
Name Your Site
Change the default name of the site to something that you desire. One basic example of a travel blog name may be “Sarah’s Travels.”
Set Your Email
Enter an email address you want messages from the site to be delivered to. This is not where you configure your contact form, see here for that.
Set Your Timezone
Depending on where you operate from, choose a time zone.
Save Changes and let’s go to the next step…
