If you have chosen WordPress to design your blog or website, you have joined many of the top brands including, Google, Facebook, The New York Times, and many others. WordPress has grown so much in popularity because it is flexible and easy to use.

Instead of getting you all bogged down in the many features of this blogging platform, I have decided to break WordPress down into pieces and give you step-by-step instructions for each part. I will begin with simple instructions for adding blog posts to WordPress.

Step #1: Accessing the WordPress “Dashboard”.

Log in to WordPress Dashboard

Once you have installed the WordPress platform, simply use your log in information to access the “Dashboard” to begin adding your first blog post.

Step #2: Moving from the WordPress “Dashboard” to the Blog “Posts” area.

Your WordPress “Dashboard” is your command center for every phase of blog or website construction. It would be a good idea for you to take a look at everything in the left sidebar. In order to add blog posts to WordPress, just select “Posts”.

Step #3: Adding the new blog post.
