Setting up a blog at WordPress.com involves very few steps and you can start writing your first post in less than 30 minutes.
The first step is rather obvious that you need to open your browser and type WordPress.com. Your search engine will give you results as shown in the image below.
Click on the sign up heading you will note that it provides you with 1-6 steps to create your site today. After clicking sign up it will take you to the first step as is shown in the image below.
The first step as shown above helps you to create your website by letting you choose what your blog is all about. As you can see from the choices provided starting with Education & Organization, Arts & Entertainment down to Business and Services.
You will then click the option that best describes your blog. When you click on the option it will redirect you to another list of options that require you to give a specific niche that your site is about. In this case, we chose Business and Services and now we will choose Advertising and Marketing as the specific niche. This should take you to the second step.
In step 2, you are required to pick from the options available how you would like your homepage to appear from the three options available below.
Note: this is just the homepage appearance and not themes.
After picking how you would like your homepage to look like you will then be taken to step 3
Step 3 will require you to pick a theme from a list of several themes that best fit with your specific demands and what your site is all about as shown in the image below.

Step four allows you to pick a domain name and if you already have a domain name then you are given an option to map it to your new site as shown in the image below.
This is the name that your blog will be called for instance we have chosen howtosetupyoursite as our domain you will then be prompted to specify if you want a free domain which will be like howtosetupyoursite.wordpress.com or upgrade by purchasing your own domain in .COM, .ORG, .ME, and .LIVE as shown below.
