Now you have your blog, let’s get into some of the fun stuff…
What is a post?
Posts are where you’ll publish your main content such as what’s been happening in your classroom. They are displayed in reverse-chronological order with the most recent post at the top of the page. Your posts are the way in which you add new information, photos or videos to your blog. A good post usually has an open-ended question at the end which requires people to respond and leave comments.
