To create a post, click on or hover over the Posts button in the sidebar of your dashboard and then click Add New. We cover many of the different elements of post creation in other tutorials, so for this tutorial we will only explore the title, the text editor, the Categories and Tags modules and the Publish module.

Begin by entering a title for your new post and then press tab on your keyboard or click in the text editor with your mouse to begin creating the body of your new post. You can type or paste your content into the text editor. You can categorize the post by selecting an existing category or by creating a new category. This will help your readers be able to search through your content more easily.

Tags also help your readers find relevant content. Tags work like keywords for your WordPress site. When you are satisfied with the content, you can click Preview to preview the content as it will appear on your site, click on Save Draft to store the post for later review and revisions, or click Publish to publish the contents of your new posts for immediate use.
