How to publish a blog post on WordPress.
Step 1: Head to your WordPress dashboard.
After completing the sign-up process, you can log into your WordPress account from the Bluehost cPanel Dashboard. You will then see the section “Posts” in the side menu on the left hand side on the page.
Step 2: Add New.
You will then click on “Add New” to create a new page to publish.
Step 3: Format and write your blog post.
WordPress makes is very easy to quickly add new “blocks” in which you can add content such as headlines, paragraphs, images, videos, graphics and so on! This is done simply by clicking the small “+” on the screen.
Step 4: Choose your publishing options.
After you have created your content for this new page you would like to publish, you can look at the right hand side and choose between these different options.
- Making your post private or public
- Creating a “URL Slug”: like this one would look like www.makingsenseofcents.com/about-me
- Creating tags and more!
Step 5: Preview your blog post.
You can then choose to either publish your post or “preview” your post. If you decide to preview it will take you to a screen that shows what the page will look like on your website when published.
Step 6: Publish your blog post.
Once you have reviewed your “preview” of your post and it looks as you hoped, you can then press “Publish” and your page will be published and will show up live on your website once you are ready to make your website live!
Once you have published your post, any changes that need to be made will be able to be updated at any time in your WordPress account when editing your post.
And, that is it!
It is that easy to publish your first blog post.
