Begin by navigating to Posts > Add New in your Dashboard.
Composing Your Post
The post editor is very similar to using Microsoft Word, or other popular word processing applications you may be familiar with. You can type your article content into the main text box depicted in the screenshot above. Alternatively, you can copy and paste content directly from your word processing application into the post editor.
Adding a Photo
We recommend including a photo with each blog post. To add a new image to your post, simply click the Add Media button that is above the post editor.
Important: Please make sure that the image you choose to use is licensed under Creative Commons, or that you own a license to use the image! Simply searching Google and using a copyrighted image can lead to legal action being taken against you by the copyright holder for unauthorized usage.
You can search for images that are licensed under Creative Commons here: https://search.creativecommons.org/
Alternatively, you can use a stock photography service to purchase a license to professional photos. Our stock photography service of choice is iStockPhoto, which you can visit here: http://www.istockphoto.com/
You’ll notice two tabs, Upload Files as well as Media Library. The Media Library contains all of the images that have been uploaded directly to your website, allowing you to choose from existing images. To upload a new file, simply drag the desired image file into the indicated area.
Publishing Your Post
Now that you have chosen a title, composed your content, and inserted any images for your new post, you’re ready to publish!
Important: New content can take up to 15 minutes to show up on your live website.
Simply press the Publish button in the top right corner and your new content will be published!
