Tuesday Tutorial: Making a Blog Post in WordPress
Consistent blogging is an important part of effectively using your website to get quality traffic and good search engine placement. Here is a step by step tutorial on how to make a blog post:
Login to your website by typing http://yourdomainname.com/wp-admin
The page will look like this:
After logging in, Click the “Write a New Post” tab.
The page will now look like this:
The best news is, when you get to this point, it’s very similar to typing a document in Word.
Important things to be aware of:
- The Title of the Blog Post will also be the URL of the post (ie. if the title is How to Make a Blog Post, the URL will be http://www.yourdomainname.com/how-to-make-a-blog-post.html) If you want your blog posts to be recognized by search engines and catch the attention of new visitors, use good keywords in the title of your blog post.
Recently bloggers tend to shorten their URLs inasmuch as their posting become totally boring. I won’t click /2008/06/27/google if I see only the URLs (like, say, in an email) but I will click google-files-for-bankruptcy…
- If you write quite a bit of content but aren’t ready to have it seen by others, click Save on the right of the screen. This will keep the blog post a draft; you can come back, make adjustments, and when you’re ready, “Publish” the blog post so other readers can see the post and make comments.
