How to Build a Blog With WordPress
Log In and Create a Post
Your blog is built and (mostly) configured. In just a few more steps you'll be able to begin posting. The initial user is named 'admin', and this is the name that will appear as the author signoff on
When you're ready to post, log out and then log back in using the new account. Click the Write button in the upper-left part of the screen, and begin blogging. Create a title and some text.

Either way, click the Save button on the right frequently as you progress.
Use the word processor-style toolbar to introduce boldface type, create lists, and otherwise format text. If you need to work directly with the HTML--for example, if you want to copy and paste an embeddable video--click the HTML tab. This view shows the underlying commands and allows direct editing. If you write HTML commands in the Visual tab, they'll appear as regular text in the body of your post.
WordPress lets you create image galleries in posts. Put the cursor where you want a single image or gallery. Click the rectangle picture icon. (When you hover your pointer over it, it says 'Add an Image'.) Click Choose files to upload to transfer your own pictures to your server. Select one or more of them, and wait until the progress bars finish adding them. WordPress will read tags and other data embedded in the images, and then it will resize them and format them for your site.
In the Gallery tab, click Show to adjust these details, change the title, and add a description. Save those changes, and then click Insert gallery into post. WordPress then adds the '[gallery]' tag to the plain-text view; this content will become your image gallery when published.
