How to Make a Post

Posts are what make your blog a blog — they’re servings of content that are listed in reverse chronological order on your blog’s front page (you can change the default order to list posts chronologically using these instructions).

There are several ways to publish new posts. Watch the video below for a quick overview of how it works, and read below for more examples and settings.

The easiest way is with the New Post button on the right side of the toolbar (it appears at the top of your screen when you’re logged in to WordPress.com).

Simply click New Post and you’ll be taken to the new post screen:

If you’re writing a post and you’d like to format the text, click the kitchen sink icon to enable additional text formatting options:

Be sure to give the post a Tag and a Category.  A Tag is something that is super specific whereas a category is something that is broader in nature. For example, you may have a post that is about a meeting. So your category could be “Meetings” and your tag could be “Voter Registration Meeting”.  These articles explains more about how to create a Tag and a Category.

When you’re done, hit Publish Post.

  1. Please contact State Senators Bobby Zirkin, Delores Kelley, and James Brochin ASAP and tell them to vote to get the MD Trust Act out of Committee. It is urgent to contact your State Senators as three Senators from Northern Baltimore are critical to move it forward.

    The Trust Act was passed easily by the Maryland House, but it will need to get out of committee to be voted on in the Senate. The session ends on April 10 so we must act fast! Members of the Judicial Proceedings Committee are divided on the issue and we need to convince four Democratic Senators to put it forward for a vote. See Indivisible HoCoMD Facebook page for details.
