This area is where you compose the title of your post. You may use any words or phrases here. Avoid using the same title twice as that will cause confusion. You can use commas, apostrophes, quotes, hypens/dashes, and other typical symbols in the post like “My Site – Here’s Lookin’ at You, Kid.”
Post Editing Area
The big blank box where you enter your writing, links, links to images, and any information you want to display on your site. You can use either the Visual or the HTML view to compose your posts. For more on the HTML view, see the section below, Visual Versus HTML View.

Allows you to see how your post will look before officially publishing it.
Shows three states for the post: Published, Pending Review, and Unpublished. A Published status means the post has been published on your blog for all to see. Pending Review means the draft is waiting for review by someone else prior to publication. Unpublished means the post has not been published and remains a draft. If you select a specific publish status and then click the Save button, that status is applied to the post. For example, to save a post in the Pending Review status, select Pending Review from the Publish Status drop-down box, and then click Save. You can see all posts organized by status by going to Manage > Posts.
Allows you to save your post as a draft rather than immediately publishing it. To return to your drafts later, click the Manage tab, click the Drafts link that appears below the Manage Posts title, and then click your draft post.
To add media to your blog post (including photos, video and audio) you will click on one of the icons next to the words Upload/Insert.
To add images to your post you will click on the first icon listed which is a photo icon. A pop-up window will appear with options to add an image From Computer, From URL or Media Library (see image below). Hit the “select files” button to upload a file from your computer.
Refers to micro-categories for your blog. Posts with similar tags are linked together when a user clicks one of the tags. Tags have to be enabled with the right code in your theme for them to appear in your post. If you mention something specific in your post, like a name, then you may want to put that name as one of your tags. Some suggested tags are: football, science, video, fun etc.
