How to add a new WordPress blog post

Hi All,

Here is a link to a short video taking you through the steps of signing in to your new Minor in Writing blog account and creating your first blog post.

One key point is to assign your blog post the appropriate categories and tags.  Please use the “2011 Fall Cohort” category for all of your posts to the blog, as well as any other categories and tags that will help your readers sort your posts and find them easily.

Please note that if the video window appears too large to view in its entirety, after clicking on the large arrow to ‘play,’ you’ll need to scroll to the lower right of the window to find the icon for viewing in full-screen.  Move your cursor over the bottom right corner to make the icon appear (it looks like a small screen or two rectangles).  Click on the icon to size the video to your computer screen.  Press ‘Esc’ to exit full screen mode and return to the blog.

Enjoy, and happy blogging!
Naomi
