How To Make A Blog Post 101

  • You cannot possibly make a blog post without knowing what blog to post on so direct yourself to  https://art1010shawfall18.commons.gc.cuny.edu  
  • Once you are on the website in order to post you will need to join the Art History Page. On the left side of the site there will be a button where you can click to add yourself.  If you are not sure that you are added to the page once u refresh it will say “Welcome ________ (your name)
  • Now that we are situated on the left side there will be a couple of categories click on the 9:30 am Class.
  • On the top of the screen you will see a “+New” click that! There will be a drop down column to choose from. Click “Post”!!! This will lead you to “Add New Post”

We are finally ready to post but there are a couple things that you should make sure of. 

  1.  Have a tittle! Why post without a tittle ?? You want your readers to have a preview of what this post might be about
  2. Write in the post box… please do not post a blank page
  3. Add a image! We want our website to look aesthetically pleasing.. you know the drill 😉
  4. CATEGORIZE! It will be easier to find your post. Click on the “9:30 AM Class”
  5. Select a tag that best describes your post!
