Give the Post a Headline

You can add almost anything you would like to include within your WordPress post.
Add a Featured Image
A featured image is like identification of your article. Every time you share the article on social media this is the image that will show up along with its link. So you might want to choose the image that describes what your blog post is all about.
Add Some Side Content
This step isn’t necessary for making a blog post but this is the only way your WordPress blog post will be discoverable by search engines. In this step, you will need to add some keywords into the Tags section of your post, which will later guide the search engine bots about what this article is all about and what the right keywords for this article are. To add tags to your blog post you will need to navigate to the right-side menu.
Select the right Category
Choosing the right category is an important step that not only guides your website visitors to the right content that they are interested in but also assists search engines in showing your blog post to the right audience looking for content. This option is also on the right side menu.
Once you plugged in all the content, headline, featured image, and tags and chose the right category for your blog post, it’s time to make it live so people over the internet can access it. Remember if you don’t publish the finished article it won’t be visible to anyone except you.
