Forum home The potting shed



would appreciate some advice please. I want to start up a blog - primarily to record the development of my garden, but also to include other areas that are important in my life.

I thought i was computer savvy, until I tried setting up a blog on!. two days later and I still have no idea how to post anything! Most frustrating!

hep and advice appreciated.

    I find WordPress quite easy to use on my computer but an absolute arse on a tablet. What are you using? I'd I know this I might be able to better help you.

    You might find searching you tube for how to videos useful as well.

    Everybody blogs on Pinterest. I've no idea what that means but you might pick up some tips there.

    Aym - think that's standard all round at the moment.  Check on Daniel and Nora's threads on Site Feedback - that's where  they're keeping us up to date on developments.

    I've used Blogspot in the past but now use WordPress for all the blogs I manage. I find it really easy to use but tend to do all but the quickest edits on a laptop.

    When you first set up, go through all the settings so you know what you've got - if you're having difficulty it may be just one setting that you've got switched on or off.

    All the free templates work slightly differently too (I only use the freebies) so you might find that by switching template it works better for you. I would suggest settling on a template before you get *too* stuck in though, as changing it later (once you've done a lot of posts) can mess up how things work a bit.
