    Love it! The only thing that gives it away as a WordPress site (other than recognizing the template!) is that the “favicon” (the little image on the browser tab or url bar, and also on users’ favorites menu) is WordPress. It’s possible to customise this – this tells you why and how http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-add-a-favicon-to-your-wordpress-blog/

    Congratulations!

      Favicon done. This is a wordpress.com site so the instructions are a bit different – need to follow this link instead – https://en.support.wordpress.com/blavatars/

        Looks great! Sorry for my muddling up .org and .com – but you were smart enough to figure it out :)

    As a designer and video producer, I think it looks great. If you do add anything, you could possibly add a video or two of you speaking to the camera and summarising some of your advice.

    Video is a great way to bring in traffic and it feels more personal. You could do it professionally of course (wink) or use a simple smartphone to get decent results.

      Thanks for the advice Katie. I’ll beat you in mind if I decide to upgrade.

    This is very helpful information & thank you for sharing it. I’ve taken heed of it while setting up my website. I’m about to buy my domain name and then attach it to wordpress, but the price of £11 per year doesn’t seem to be the case. Either wordpress has changed the rules/ prices or I’m misunderstanding and hope you might clarify. The site requires a premium or business plan upgrade at a cost of £4 odd per month in order to attach your own domain name. It doesn’t seem to allow this for the free version. Would you clarify how you managed this for £11? Thanks.

      Hi Deb. If you go to the “domains” area of your site/blog and map a domain to your site then it will cost £11. You don’t need a business or a premium plan to do this.
      Hope this helps.
