Welcome to Podcast Websites, the all-in-one WordPress service just for podcasters. In this text post, Mark from Podcast Websites walks you through how to set up your first blog post / article.

What is a blog post / article and how does it fit into my website?

A blog post (also known as an article), in this context, is a text only post that is outside of your podcast episodes and that doesn’t appear in iTunes or any pod-catcher.

These posts are great for sharing text / image driven content that runs alongside your podcast and many of the World’s biggest podcasters run successful blogs as well as publishing their podcast shows.

  2. Hover over “Writing”
  3. Click on “Create Blog/Article”.
  4. Add:
    • A title
    • The body of the article
    • Any body content images (“Add Media”) [optional]
    • A featured image [optional]
  5. Save Draft / Preview / Schedule / Publish the blog post / article

  2. You can put blog posts into categories to group them into relevant topics, for example

Important note: be sure to delete this post when you’re finished with it.
