Creating a WordPress theme can take quite a bit of work when you're starting from scratch because you have to put together quite a bit of PHP code (the programming language WordPress uses) before you can even get to creating the look and feel of your site. We're going to save you the trouble by providing those files pre-made for you, plus a skeletal structure of the CSS you're going to need to make your WordPress site look the way you want.
That list probably seems a little intimidating, but chances are you won't need to edit most of those files. We just wanted you to know what everything does. At the very least, you only need to edit styles.css, and maybe footer.php (if you want to add content to your footer). Now that you know what you're in for, let's install this blank theme in WordPress.
