HOW TO PUBLISH OR CREATE YOUR FIRST POST IN BLOGGER

Whoever wants to be a blogger, cannot be, without learning out to publish a post because almost the whole journey of your blogging rests under your posts, the sensible it is the greater you stand to receive tremendous traffic and I always emphasis much on that in my tutorials.

Without tending to waste much of our precious time, let us begin the journey by stating that, there are five (5) tools in the blogger post dashboard which are meant to be learnt, known and practised as a blogger, for learning purpose, I'm disclosing and teaching them in this post and they are as thus;

1. APPLYING BOLD
2. APPLYING ITALIC
3. ADDING "IMAGE" TO POST
4. ADDING A REFERENCE "LINK" (THIRD PARTY LINK)
5. ADDING EDUCATIONAL OR ILLUSTRATION "VIDEO"


other tools are as vital as the listed ones but one is most important than others meanwhile when you understand the five listed tools above you can easily manage a blog or be a contributor on a blog for as long as you could without using the unlisted tools, what I'm saying in essence is that those five tools are the elementary tools in blog post dashboard.

By now, I will be explaining these tools one after the other.

To start with, let me quickly teach you how to log IN to your blog then proceed to those tools.

HOW TO LOG IN TO A BLOG AS A CONTRIBUTOR OR OWNER

In this step, visit www.blogger.com or www.www.blogspot.com both link are powered by Google which means at your convenience you may choose any of them.

Note: You can only use advanced browsers to log in, by advanced browsers I mean any of these browsers: Chrome, Firefox, UC browser or Mobile default browser.


When you have logged in, you will see the like of the image below



From there what you will need to click here is explained and illustrated using the arrow on the image and that is "New post".
Now, by clicking the new post another page will prompt up which looks like this


Here there are two things you should know, these are : The Post title and Post Body Box, both of them provide tools like the one on Microsoft word (MS) even without knowing more than that you can manage your blog by just inserting your post title 

Note: post title is mostly essential even than that of the message conveys in the post, because many people will conclude from the title of your post between read and do not read, hence ensure you provide a hotcake for your headline).

To work with the post title and the post box see exactly what is expected through the image below

From here you can publish your post and once is being published then whoever visits your blog (website) will be able to read your works (articles) from across the globe (world wide).

To publish, see the upper right hand corner of your screen, and click on " Publish" allow it to process and that is all about publishing of articles.

 You may try that out now then come back here to learn little more features such as ; Image, Video, links,.bold, italic etc.


From the above steps, it is my pleasure to tell that we can now start taking those tools that you are already aware of the first of which is;
 "APPLYING BOLD, A WRITING TOOL"

I order to use these tools, see the image below




- "B" as seen, stands for bold.
- "T" as seen, stands for Italic
- "U" as seen, stands for Underline


Note: in order to apply any of them, firstly highlight what you wish to apply style to, it could be a sentence, a word or a paragraph from the while article and it could also be the whole article, then when you've highlighted it scroll up to click on any of them, then drop the cursor to see what you have just applied.


The next thing is:
HOW TO UPLOAD AN IMAGE IN YOUR POST


To attach an image, e.g thumbnail graphical image (thumbnail is the small picture that you used to see when you visit a website beside each article it used to be beside or above the article depending on developer's choice).
Thumbnail image is also very vital in conveying the message in your article.

To add that click on "Gallery icon" from the tools seen after the post tittle, for proper identification, see this image




You should be taken to this page on the image below
Note: before you click on the icon, ensure your cursor rests after the word you wish your image to come, for example see my cursor and where it is in the image below
After that you should be taken to this page
From here, click on "Choose Files" when the page has completely loaded.

Follow the images below to select your image



Choose, in line with where your image is stored.
E.g Gallery, then proceed to select the image you want to use as thumbnail and proceed to here






The same method should be followed if there are many images you wish to use throughout your article and also to upload video for lessons follow the same method.
