1 WordPress Basics Creating a profile!

2 Stage Two: Sign in Sign in, and from the homepage, in the My Blogs tab, click on the Dashboard. Youll be whisked to the dashboard to get things started.

3 Your Dashboard. Huh? When you are signed in, at the top of the page is a tab called My Blog, which shows all the blogs registered to your username.

4 Navigating the Dashboard Youve got two sets of dashboard menus when youre logged in. First, the left-hand navigation menus are a way to access almost all the powers of your blog. You can open any left-hand menu by hovering over the text, and then clicking on the arrow that appears. In this example, the Posts section is open.

5 The WordPress.com toolbar Your other menu is the toolbar across the top of your blog. Your toolbar may look slightly different but this is the basic gist of it. You can access fewer tools with this toolbar than you can with your left-hand menu the idea is to just put some essentials up there for secondary access to your administrative site.
