Atwill Media's websites make it very easy to create and publish your own blog posts for your customers to read. It only takes a few simple steps to get started publishing your own posts.
The first thing you need to do is login to your Atwill Media website by scrolling down to the bottom of your page, and clicking on "Login" in the footer. To make any changes to your Atwill Media website, you will always need to login to your website, which will allow you to access the various helpful tools at your disposal.
To easily add a new blog post to your website, you can click on Add To Site at the top of your admin toolbar, scroll down to the bottom of the list, and then click on "Add a new blog post." This is the most direct way to add a blog post to your website, but you can also go to the Blog page of your website (if you have it enabled on your website and added to your Site Navigation) and click on "Click Here to Add a New Blog Post" at the top of that page. Whichever option you select, you will immediately be brought to the Page Options screen where you can add all of your blog post's important information.
Page Options allow you to edit a multitude of important information options. This is where you can give your page a name (which will automatically be applied to your Page URL); a Meta Title, Description, and Keywords, which will be used to help your blog get found through search engines; Post Tags, to help you organize your blog posts by categories; and a Publish Date so you can publish your post immediately, or schedule it for posting on a later date.
After you've added all of your important information for your Page Options, click Save Changes and you will be brought to a page where you can write and publish your blog post!
To write your blog post, simply type it into the Text Block that is automatically provided for you after saving your Page Options. You can add a Title to your blog post, and also manipulate your text with different headings; font colors, sizes, styles; links to webpages; images, and more!
Just be sure to always click Save Changes to apply the changes you've made to your blog post.
Your blog post isn't always going to be perfect the first time you write it; there's always a need for editing old information, or correcting unwanted typos.
If you want to edit a blog post that you've previously published, you have to first make sure you're logged in to your website. Then, find the blog post you want to edit and click on the pencil icon for the blog's Text Block. Simply add or edit your blog's information, and then click Save Changes to apply your edits.
