How to Add Some Pizzazz to Your Blog Posts
This blog post will show you how to use some of WordPress.com’s built-in features to make your blog post really POP!
> Bold and Italic work the same way as in Microsoft Word – simply click the B or I buttons (or use ctrl+b/ctrl+i)
> Adding colour is also the same as in Word, simply highlight the text, and choose your colour from the drop-down menu
(Just be careful which colours you use – some are very hard to read, such as yellow, white, or neon green!
> To add a hyperlink, you simply select the text that you wish to link, and select the link button
> To add images or other file types from your computer, click the “Add Media” button at the top left corner, above B and I
(Allowed file types: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, pdf, doc, ppt, odt, pptx, docx, pps, ppsx, xls, xlsx. Max size: 1 GB )
> You can also add a YouTube video or other HTML embedded features by clicking “Embed” underneath any YouTube video and copy+pasting the provided link directly into your blog post like so:
The video will then appear in your post looking like this:
> Add a category (How-To…) and tags (health, communication, blog, Youtube, SFU) on the lower right hand side of the page
> Finally remember to always sign your blog posts (Take credit where credit is due!)
