Choose a theme

Click on next step

If you wish to add a photo or two place the cursor where you want the photo to go. Click on Add Media button. Click on Upload Files. Click on the photo you want to use. Click on Select File. Click on Pictures file on your laptop. Click on the photo you want to use. Click on blue bottom at the bottom right of your screen called Insert Into Post.

When you’ve written your post go to the left and click on tabs and categories. Complete this if you wish (I would recommend it). When you have done this click on preview button at bottom of your post then click on edit (this will take you back to your post). If you’re happy with the post click on publish.

Click on sign out when you have finished.
