Enter the Admin Panel and Click the Post tab.
This will open up a list of option within the Post section. To write a new blog post click on the Add New link.
Give the Post a descriptive Title. This title will appear at the top of your post and will become the linked text that links to this post in other pages. It also becomes the default file name for the post unless you use the Permalink editing feature just below the title box to specify a specific, perhaps shorter, file-name in the URL path.
You would use the permalink editor to give the URL file-name a shorter version than the title of the post. If your post is titled “This is the Best Blog Post Ever” the default URL to that page would be something like www.domain.com/this-is-the-best-blog-post-ever/ which is rather long. By editing the permalink name you could enter best blog post and the URL would then become www.domain.com/best-blog-post/
Write your content into the Text Editor area. Use the graphic editing icons to format your text. For more on how to format your content with the editing buttons click here.
Note: If you previously wrote your text using a word processor, like Microsoft Word, you will transfer lots of formatting when copying and pasting the text from Word into your WordPress editor. It will produce much unnecessary code (click to “html view” to see). To avoid this first paste your text into a simple text editor like Notepad (all Microsoft operating systems include the Notepad program). This will strip all the formatting from Word into pure text. Then copy and paste from Notepad into WordPress. You will now need to add your formatting, such as bold sections, headlines or bullets, as you would like it displayed on your website.
