This is my first tutorial. A second one will follow soon. For this first one, I'd like to set down for you the exact process I use to create new content and post it. Feel free to try this process if it looks like it would be helpful.

1, Select Topic And Research

Select a topic to write about and do all the necessary research needed to write about it. I skim through several posts on the subject and select three or four that seem to be most complete.

I make copies of my research material and then carefully read all the selections I've made. This process will give me an idea of how to organize my post and which information to include.

If you find it easier to write from an outline, this is the time to do it. Select the main points you want to apply from your research, put them in the order you want to use, and create headings that summarize the particular subject.

Then you can fill in the details that you wish to include. These details may come from more than one of your researched posts.

    Awesome tutorial Fran. I've always wanted to publish directly from Word Press. Now I know how to do it. This tutorial is very helpful.

    Blessings,

    Oh, so glad it was helpful. My newest challenge is learning the block editor, and am ready to try it directly on the WordPress platfom. Tricky little challenge for me.

    Excellent tutorial, Fran. Good idea of keeping your post from being published until you're ready. I publish my content from Site Content to word press and then race to get everything in before its out there too long.
    One thing I do at the very last is share new post to social media.
    Thanks for taking time to put it all down in a straight forward way.

    Yes, I do that, too. Didn't I put it in there? Wonder if I did on the daily, weekly, and monthly tutorial. Thanks for mentioning it. I put a link on Facebook and Twitter.

    Hi - the only thing I would mention is to ensure that one of your older posts also has an internal link leading to your new post. This will allow the Google bots to find it quicker and understand the structure of your website.

    What a good idea! I never thought of that. Thanks, Diane.

    Jay’s recent training for SEO did suggest two things that I learned. 1. External links in middle of post, that was his suggestion. 2. Embed the video rather than the link itself. Doing that will keep readers on your page not out of it. It came from the hot seat showing other members websites. Kind of cool to see. Fran, great training, that is helpful. The alt text I just learned that one from another training.

    Thanks for your comment. I do embed the video. That is more apt to gain watchers, I think. As for external links in the middle of the post, if they fit there, I'll put them there. However, I rather like having references listed at the end.

    Fran, it makes sense to me, you can create a Resource page and link to it internal link. I saw a training about that. Jay suggested it because it benefits SEO and the SERPS.

    I’m still learning new things. Jay trainings has not been possible for me to attend when I joined January 2019. I am totally Deaf. Without closed captioning, I missed out on a lot of Jay’s weekly trainings. I had to depend on lip reading him and try to catch the visual aspects of the topics. It wore me out. I stopped attending then my health problems rendered me unable to focus on building my niche website.

    It was only about last Spring, someone in live chat or in one of Jay’s training live chat mentioned to me that Google Chrome desktop now has closed captioning subtitled option and the guy explained how to get it to work.

    I tried it. OMG, my 👀 opened so wide in amazement how wonderful it worked compared to my speech to text app. Thanks to Google Chrome desktop I can attend and watch Jay’s training. This enabled me to start getting my site going after it’s been abandoned due to my health.

    This is a game changer for me. I can read everything Jay says verbally. Even watch the replays with the captioning features. Its awesome. Too bad it’s not available for iOS as an app yet.

    Looking forward to see more of your future trainings.
