Thanks for the info, Jeff. I used that exact video to launch my blog years ago.

However, I’d assert that launching a self-hosted wordpress blog has become a clunky, obsolete way of the past.

Compared to Medium — millions of built-in followers, sleek design, the opportunity for paid posts — blogs are antiquated tools that are dying more and more every day. Why would I go through the hassle of setting up a blog when I can do everything for free on Medium with 1000x the exposure?
