Then, modify the post settings and add content to the post in the following areas:

  • Title - The name of the blog post.
  • URL - The URL slug of the blog post’s web address.
  • Bio - The name of the author associated with the post.
  • Publish Date - The date the post will be published.
  • Allow Comments - When toggled on, blog visitors will be able to add comments to the blog post.
  • Content - The rich text editor where you can create and format the body text of the blog post.

TIP: Using strong keywords in the title and URL of the blog post have SEO benefits.
