Posting to Your Blog on HWDSB Commons

Ok, so you’ve requested your blog, you’ve changed your theme to something more representative of you, given it a name, and tweaked the user settings with your URL so that your blog is clickable from our community page on http://mypuley.ca. Now it’s time for you to post your first article. Follow along with this video as I show you how to create a new post, add a title, write your text, and add a picture / video from the internet, as well as categories and tags. I’ll also show you how to delete that pesky ‘Sample Page’ from your menu that was added as a default when you requested your blog.
