Getting Back to Previous Posts


OK so the first thing you need to know is how to get back to your first post and do any editing you might want.  Look at the tool bar on the left hand side.  Open the drop down for Posts and then click on All Posts.  This will show any posts you have created.  Simply click on the post and you can start editing.  If you want to create a new post click on add new.  The same process as from the previous blog.

Like everything the more you use it the better you get with it.  Take Microsoft word for example I recently updated from the version I was using.  At first I found it really difficult to find my way around and perform the functions I needed.  Now I am a lot more capable and can appreciate some of the new features.  To get me to this stage took a while and it is exactly the same with WordPress, by using it, playing with it seeing what the different buttons do I am gradually becoming much more competent.  Although there is still a long way to go……

Anyway here some ideas that I have heard about or seen blogs used for.

If you have any more great ideas please put them in the comment boxes.  I would love to know what else is out there.  I suppose now is the time for us all to start creating and having a go at putting something out there.   Don’t worry if you are at all like me the first time was by far the hardest.  I look forward to seeing what gets created.

Term of The Week

Widget :  A widget is basically a piece of web text that some clever designer has written.  This pre made text can then be put into your blog or web page.  The map at the top of this page is an example of a widget so is the subscribe button.  There are loads and loads of different widgets out there that do a multitude of things.

  1. Many thanks for using 100WCGU as an example!

    Nice post (again!). Just a few suggestions about your blog links:

    1) It might be good to link the blog examples to the categories of blogs you list.
    2) Rather than putting in the actual URLs of the blogs, why not just link the URLs to the names of the blogs?
    3) One of your blog URLs is actually the address for a link from Twitter – you can remove the last part of the URL, which refers to Twitter.

  3. Mark says:

    You list blog uses (poetry blog, homework blog, etc), then give a separate list of example blogs. Why not integrate the two lists, so that you place examples next to the relevant uses?

    Thank you for using outstandingteaching as an example!

    This is pretty resourceful. Never really looked at blogs so closely. thanks

    • Hi Sara, I am still very much learning myself but the more I see what’s out there the more impressed I am. Hopefully these blogs will prove useful to teachers who are keen to start blogging but didn’t know where to begin.
