All You Need To Know About Using WordPress

Does having a personal blog interest you? Do you have one on WordPress, but not sure how everything works? Lots of things can be done to make a blog more appealing. Use the following information to build a better blog.

Choose a unique design to make your site stand out from the competition. It is tempting to try doing this to save time, but users won’t think much of it. Create something that shows your unique flair.

Devote some time to learning about the various options and tools that you have at your fingertips when you use WordPress for blogging. For example, “KITCHEN SINK” gives you more format options on posts. Your admin pages will also have a “SCREEN OPTIONS” tab. This can be used to control several formatting elements.

Title and Alt are both things you need to use. Use your Title and Alt. text tags when you use images in blog posts. This will let you add more SEO phrases and will let users that block images know what they are missing.

Create a schedule for posting. If you have a set time when you are supposed to make a post, you will be more likely to actually do it. In fact, it is possible to create a whole week’s or month’s posts in one day, and then utilize the scheduling feature to get WordPress to upload your postings for you.
