Log onto wordpress.com and sign up.
Just like in WordPress.
We’re going to go to the dashboard, and let’s start with “appearance,” and start looking through the themes.
For Monday, you’re going to need:
–embedded audio, pics, video.
–most of all, BE INTERESTING!
To set up catagories…posts/catagories.
Go to “appearance” then “menu” only AFTER you’ve created catagories.
Then, add your categories to the menu.
Now, to add posts, go to posts and “add new.”
For now, let’s just do text. Go ahead and write something, then put it into a catagory. Your catagories will appear under the “publish” button.
Up next…adding a photo.
There are a couple of ways you can add pics. The first is to add a photo you own the rights to, or have downloaded and agree to cite.
Now, you have options as to how the pic will appear.
You can change the alignment.
You can link out to another site.
And you can change the size (there will usually be 3-4 sizes available).
Now, once you insert the image, you can shrink it by 10% increments for further customization.
Click on the pic after you insert it, and then you’ll get an icon in the upper left hand corner.
Now, you can shrink it if you want.
