Add or Edit a Blog Post

First log in to the WordPress backend or ‘dashboard’. Once logged in you’ll see a menu on the left hand side, which is a list of all the various things you can do in WordPress.

  1. Locate the Posts tab and select the sub-option ‘Add New’.
  2. In the next screen at the top of the page, give your blog post a name.
  3. In the large text editing area, you can write your blog post’s content, including adding any images. (See this article about using the WordPress post editor).
  4. In the right column, you can select which category the blog post should belong to, or create a new one.
  5. Finally, you can tell WordPress whether the post should be published straight away, or be scheduled to go live at a later time. You can also simply save it as a draft to continue working on later.
