Follow these step-by-step instructions for creating a new blog post in WordPress.

How to create a blog post

  1. Type your title in the text box directly under “Add New Post.” Your title should be brief and allow a reader to easily identify what your post is about.
  2. Type the text of your post in the box below the title. Format and modify it as desired using the tools available.
  3. Explore some of the other options available on this page before publishing. The buttons above the post text box include the Show/Hide Kitchen Sink button, which gives you more formatting options including tools for pasting plain text or text from Microsoft Word.
  4. Select Publish to finish.

Draft and preview

You can also save your work for later using the Save Draft button, which is also in the Publish section. You can also preview your work with the Preview button.
