Okay, here goes. I have completed my beginner’s course for WordPress blogging and I thought I would have been working on this site while still working on the fictional blog. I was wrong. I am scattered and can only do one thing at once…. well one thing correctly that is.
So, today I thought I would start the lessons over again (I printed them and saved them onto my computer because I learned how to do that – Yay Me!). I was surprised by the first lesson.
You see, in this course we always went to the Dashboard (my instructor called it backside) and used that to start posts and pages. I never saw the dreaded “beep, beep, boop” when working from this.
When I started to post without thinking the words were there and there was a delay in being able to perform the task I intended.
So, if you are one of the people that is annoyed by the beep, beep, boop, it is easy to avoid….
- hover over My Sites
- click on WP Admin
- hover over posts
- click add new
Isn’t that easy? Amazing how I sometimes make things so difficult simply because I don’t know what I am doing!
So my challenge to those of you who are not already experts is to explore the many things you can do through what’s called the Dashboard.
