Step 1. Outline your site’s content.

Before you start, take a minute to sketch out the important pieces of your site, like the critical information and the pages you want to include.

Step 2. Create pages.

Add the basic pages you’ve sketched out, inserting any content and images you have. (It’s okay if you don’t have everything!) Be sure to create one page to be your site’s home page, and one blank page to house your blog; you’ll need those in the next step.

Step 3. Configure your site to use a static home page.

A new wordpress.com website defaults to a “blog” view. Tweak the site’s settings to create a regular home page instead, using the home page you just made.

 Step 4. Pick a theme you like.

Now that you have the basics in place, choose a theme you love. It may sound backward, but having pieces of your website set up first will make it easier to see whether a theme works for you.
