Writing Your First Post on Your WordPress Blog

What’s a blog without top-notch posts right? Now is the time to start creating content for your new WordPress blog.

From the menu bar on the left side of your Dashboard, go to Posts -> Add New.

The ‘Add New Post’ page will then open. You will have to enter a post title and you may begin writing in the white box.

You can write in either of the two modes given, which are the Visual and Text Editors. If you are familiar with the use of HTML, you can write your post using the Text Editor.

Besides entering text in the white box area, you can also include images to go along with your post. You can add images by clicking ‘Add Media’ and you are able to upload images from your computer. With the other features available, you can also add a poll and contact form in your post. If you want to let your readers know where you are, you can choose to enter your location as well.

As you are writing your post, be sure to click on ‘Save Draft’ in the Publish box on the right side. You can also preview your blog post by clicking on ‘Preview’.

Before you hit ‘Publish’, make sure you have selected your desired category and tags to categorize your post.

Also be sure to select the right Format for your post. The options available are Standard, Aside, Image, Link, Quote and Status.
