Written by Peter Visser

I thought that I should start doing more ‘How to…’ articles to help out the guys who are just starting out.

So here is the first one. If you have already watched the video then you can skip past this section.

Step 1 – Log into your WordPress dashboard

Simply go to and log in. If you don’t know your password, then simply use the ‘Forgot Password’ feature that is located there.

Step 2 – Add Your Post

Once you are in the dashboard go to Posts -> Add New.

Add new post

Step 3 – Add your content

Add you’re the title and the content of the blog post. I usually write my articles in word before copying and pasting them into WordPress.

Add content

Step 4 – Publish

Once you have added all the content you wanted to for your brand spanking new blog post, click on the Publish button.

Publish Post

Step 5 – Enjoy your new blog post

Once your post is published you can view by clicking on the ‘View Post‘ link, or just go to your blog to check out your new content. Awesome, isn’t it!
