Video Tutorial: Publish Your First Blog Post
We’ll be posting a short video tutorial here every Saturday during Zero to Hero, to help out you visual learners. Today, we’ll walk you through publishing a post.
If you’re following the Zero to Hero 30-day blogging challenge, you’ve now introduced yourself, customized your blog name, and shared what motivated you to start blogging. If you’re still not totally comfortable with drafting and publishing a post, or if you’re not doing the challenge and need to know the nuts and bolts of publishing, today’s tutorial is for you. Let’s publish a post!
Have an idea in mind? Let’s get started.
Congratulations! You’re a published author.
One important note about Post Formats: These only change the visual design of your blog post (based on your theme) but don’t dictate the types of content you can include. Feel free to mix text, images, and other media, regardless of the post format you choose. Learn more about post formats
