In an attempt to lighten both Janyce’s and Kim’s load, I will be writing a few posts under the heading category ”Blogging How-To” subcategory “Blogging” to help point those who need blogging help to the places they should be able to find answers. (Notice the “posted by” just under this page’s title at the top – I’m Brooke. *wave*)
First things first – bookmark the page you are currently reading to your Favorites for easy reference.
I will go into detail on a few more specific topics in some posts in the future, but for now this is your “crash course” with useful links to get you started.
Below are some of the links that allowed me to teach myself to blog back in 2010. Screen shots and videos are included on most of them. =)
Next link to save:
Almost everything you ever wanted to know about blogging (and then some) can be found on the support page link above. And the support page search box is your best friend if you don’t see what you are looking for immediately!
Here are a few other shortcuts you may want:
Dashboard (aka “blog control panel”) general details explained (Note: Because most of us are just considered “contributing writers” on this blog, you may not have access to everything you see on the dashboard.)
User profile – your personal info/picture and how it is displayed to others on the internet (Everyone, whether you are new to blogging or not, should definitely read this info about your profile!)
Introduction to WordPress and blogging (Probably more useful to those who want to or have just set up their own personal blog through WordPress.)
Well, that’s it for now – have fun exploring the help files & videos that the wonderful WordPress tech team has provided! I’ll be back with another “blogging how to” post when I have time in a few days. =)
