Ready to start sharing your ideas with the world? Publishing great-looking content is a breeze!
Posts vs. pages
While publishing posts is the primary way to share content on your site, you can also add additional pages to make it look and feel more like a traditional website. Learn more about the difference between posts and pages here.
You can create a new post several different ways:
- The New Post button in the top right of the admin bar (learn more)
- The New Post tab on the WordPress.com home page
- Posts -> Add New in your site’s Dashboard
- Quick Draft in your site’s Dashboard
You can also create a new page from your site’s Dashboard by going to Pages -> Add New, and for most themes, a link to your page will automatically be displayed in your navigation menu.
Adding images, video, and audio
You can add galleries, slideshows, and individual images to posts and pages. If you’d like to upload videos to your site, we offer VideoPress upgrade. You can also easily embed videos from services like YouTube & Vimeo.
Each new WordPress.com site comes with 3GB of free storage for files and images. If you need additional storage space, or you’d like to upload audio to your site, there are multiple space upgrades to choose from.
You can also use one of our many mobile apps, Press This, or a desktop blogging app to really post from anywhere. We also have some tips if you’re writing poetry or bringing in content from Microsoft Word.
