I realize that for many of you, this is a very simple procedure and you are not at all interested in this posting. But for those of us who are beginners, I have found little information tidbits like this helpful to me…and since I have been requested by beginners, such as myself, I am posting this in an effort to SIMPLIFY the tedious instructions and write them as simply as I can to help others. Hopefully, there are no errors and it will help someone. Also, any suggestions for improvements in my instructions, would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
I also need HELP in using the widgets! (1) I am unable to add IMAGES…sometimes I succeed, but most of the time I do not. And I do not know what I am doing incorrectly; (2) At one time, I had all of my former postings listed in ARCHIVES—then somehow it disappeared….and I do not know how to get the Archives to display my previous postings. I would appreciate the help of my fellow bloggers! Thank you!
To add your own photos to your writing, follow these steps:
1. Go to Dashboard.
2. Click on POSTS….Add NEW POST of Existing Post
3. When the POST page appears…immediately above the rectangular box, there is a smaller rectungular box with the words “Add Media”
4. CLICK on “Add Media”
5. This will take you to a new page, INSERT MEDIA
6. Click on UPLOAD FILES
7. A new page will appear and in the center, it tells you to Drop files anywhere to upload……I go to the center box that reads SELECT FILES….click this….and then it will take you to the different locations on your computer …you SELECT the one with the photo image that you want……..and download it into the box.
