Forget the word Word Press. Now what you would do is create a blog or a web site from scratch.
Okay, back to Word Press. There are 2 of them.
Wordpress.com is a free blog, such as blogger. Wordpress also has rules, TOS which prevents you from using affiliate links etc. They do not have a pay program as with Hub pages. Wordpress is not an article submission site.
Wordpress.org is where you have a couple of choices. But, you do have to have a paid domain name as well as a web hosting company.
The first choice is to go to Wordpress.com and download it. Plan on spending a lot of time trying to figure it out, fooling around with plug ins etc.
Another option, maybe the easiest and best is using web hosts such as Host Gator and others, already have a system in place where you can set up wordpress when you sign up. These web hosts that support Word Press have the function for Word press built in, and you can also design and select from a multitude of templates, rather than searching the net, and paying for something that you can get for free with your web host. Just make sure they support Word Press and have a C Panel.
