BLOG SETUP TO SITE OR ONLINE STORE
In this guide, we will be discussing steps to integrate a BLOG Feature System into your new or existing Website or Online Store . The steps are pretty easy, quick and simple.
Premade BLOG Page & Default Sample Posts
FORTUNATELY, Most Premium WordPress Themes come with the Premade “Blog Page” and a few Default Sample Article Posts.
In this case, you don’t need to create one. You just have to edit and customize it to your brand.
Adding a New BLOG Page (From Scratch) to your Website
As mentioned, you do not need to create your own Blog Page when you buy Premium Themes as most of them come with default “Blog” Page.
If you Want to Create a “BLOG” Page from Scratch, then below are the steps.
- Add a ‘New PAGE‘ in WordPress.
- Name the page ‘BLOG‘.
- Publish the ‘PAGE‘.
- Navigate to the Settings section.
- Designate a ‘POSTS‘ page.
- Determine the amount of posts you want.
- Write and publish your first post.
If you want some visuals to guide you along, check out the corresponding steps below.
Log in to your WordPress Website Admin Dashboard >>
1. Add a New Page.
Click on “Pages” and “Add New“. The Add New Page page appears. This is the page where you can write a new post to your WordPress blog.
This step is pretty self-explanatory. Since you already have an existing business website and you want to add a blog, you’ll need a page for your blog to live. You don’t want it encroaching on other pertinent page information.
2. Name the page “BLOG”.
Name it “Blog” for easy identification. Leave the text box / content area completely blank because you want the page to act as a feed for your posts — not a static read page.
3. Publish the page.
In order for your Blog page to go live, you need to publish it. Don’t worry about where the posts go just yet — we’ll tackle that later.
4. Navigate to the Settings section.
When you’re in your Dashboard, you’ll see a column along the left with all the different things you can do in WordPress. Go to Settings > Reading to bring up the page seen above.
5. Designate a Posts page.
Click on A static page, and then select Blog under the drop-down menu for Posts page. This is important. This step determines where your blog feed appears. Make sure to select “Blog” under the drop-down menu for “Posts page” and not “Front page” — unless of course you want your blog to be the landing page of your business website (probably not).
6. Determine the amount of posts you want.
This is a personal preference, really. How many posts do you want to appear when your readers click on Blog? Five? 12? Play around with different amounts and see which option you prefer. Then, save your changes.
7. Write and publish your first post.
And now you’re ready to blog! If you haven’t already done so, you should first set up an editorial calendar for your content so you can produce quality, consistent work for your followers.
Creating a New Post (On Old Editor)
There are several ways to add a new post – the easiest way is to hover over the Posts tab and click Add New.
Write the TITLE of your post in the first box at the top that says Enter title here.
The big box below the title box is the CONTENT AREA where you can put all the text, images and other content that makes up your new blog post.
Congratulations! Your have done setting up your BLOG to your Website . . .
