The first thing every blogger needs to learn is how to create a post. It is the essential element of your site and will allow you to share content with your readers. In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a post in the blogger.
Adding a post to Blogger blog
Once in, pick the ‘Posts’ (#1) tab in the left menu and click on the orange ‘New Post’ (#2) button.
Your post is almost ready!
In the new window add a post title (#1), post content (#2) and hit the orange ‘Publish’ button.
Congratulation! You have now created your first post!
Accessing post options
Posts do not need to be simple. You can add images, links, make your text bold, large or in different colors. All those options can be accessed from the menu between post title and content.
Most of these tools are straightforward so I will not list them all here. The only one I would like to highlight is ‘Insert Jump Break’ (6 from the right on the screen above). It will allow you to display post snippets on your blog homepage.
Additional post settings can be located on the right of the post content area.
Compose vs HTML
Above the post-editing tools, you may find a switcher between visual and code version of your post. Below you can see the same post visible in those two views: Compose and HTML.
As you will notice, post-editing tools are different in both modes.
Create a sticky post in blogger
Posts can be used to create a simple Welcome blurb on your blog homepage. To learn how to set up one visit our tutorial about sticky blogger posts.
