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.
