How to add a blog post (WordPress)?


WordPress is a popular platform for creating websites, and it’s the one we most often work on. Therefore, in this article we will try to explain in simple terms and show you step by step how to add a new blog post on WordPress.

Step 1: Log in to your WordPress account

To add a new blog post, you must first log in to your WordPress account. Enter your username and password, then click the “Login” button. Another option is also to go to your website and type the word admin after the slash: www.sample.website/admin. After you click enter, a window will appear for you to enter your login and password, which you established at the stage of building the site

Step 2: Click “Add New” on the “Entries” box.

After logging in, you’ll see a column on the left with multiple categories. Find the name of the entry and hover your mouse over it. A new window will appear, on which you should click “Add new”. Then it will take you to a sub-page where you can add a new, previously prepared entry.

Step 3: Enter the title and content of the blog post

Now it’s time to enter the title and content of the blog post. Enter a title in the “Title” field at the top of the screen, and then enter the content of the blog post in the “Content” field. It is worth mentioning that in order for an article to serve its purpose, it must be readable (give sub-headings, enumerations, use paragraphs) once it contains keywords that will make our post appear to users who are looking for information on a particular topic. However, we will write more about this in a separate post.

Step 4: Add images and multimedia

To add images or multimedia to a blog post, then find the phrase “Featured Image” on the right. Once clicked, you will be able to either upload a new file or use the already existing image database in the site’s library. However, it is a good idea to add new photos that have not been used before, as it is important that they fit the post as well as possible. A standout image is a photo that will be displayed in the article thumbnail and be the main graphic above the text.

Step 5: Select a category and tags

To help readers find your blog post, it’s a good idea to choose a category and add tags. Categories help organize blog posts, and tags allow you to search for blog posts by specific keywords. Therefore, think in advance about what kind of content you intend to post on your company blog and develop several categories that will correspond to the planned content.

Step 6: Publish the blog post

Once you have entered your content, images and category and tag information, you are ready to publish your blog post. Click the “Publish” button on the top right corner of the screen to publish the blog entry. If you want to save the blog entry as a draft and publish it later, click the “Save Draft” button. You can also schedule the publication of a post for a specific day and time. This option is especially useful when you don’t have time to create content on a regular basis. Take advantage of your free day or two and plan your publications for the next few weeks.


Adding a new blog post on WordPress is quite intuitive and you can easily learn it. We hope our short tutorial will make your job easier.
