Start with installing a standard wordpress blog on a hosted server, on your own server, or on you’r local computer using wamp or xamp (Instructions for how to install and configure Xamp or Wamp). Benefits with using a local installation as Xamp or Wamp is that you do not have to move the files to internet with a FTP program every time you have changed something in your theme-files. The disadvantage is that it is more difficult to set up the wordpress installation and you can not use the wordpress installation right away for starting to publish articles, you will have to get a webhotel anyway when you want to go live with your website. I often order the webhotel and install wordpress there, starts to make my theme there, integrate it with plugins and multilingual configurations right away if that is needed.
