How to Write Your First Blog Entry

Composing a WordPress blog post is a lot like typing an e-mail: You give it a title, you write the message, and you click a button to send your words into the world. Follow these steps to write a basic blog post:

1

Click Add New on the Posts drop-down list.

The Add New Post page opens.

2

Type the title of your post in the Enter Title Here text box at the top of the Add New Post page.

You can collapse or reposition all the modules on the Add New Posts page to suit your needs. The only part of the Add New Posts page that can’t be collapsed and repositioned is the actual Title and Post text boxes (where you write your blog post).

3

Type the content of your post in the large text box below the Enter Title Here text box.

You can use the Visual Text Editor to format the text in your post.

4

Click the Save Draft button in the Publish module, located at the top right of the Add New Post page.

The page refreshes with your post title and content saved, but not yet published to your blog.
