This is just a quick post which will be expanded as time goes by. Because I am lazy and because a lot of people need help with the same thing 🙂
A little disclaimer: I am a participant, not a staff member 😉
How do I add a topic to my Reader?
When you enter http://wordpress.com into your browser, you will see this page, provided you are signed into your account. You can enter a topic into your reader, for example Blogging101, or Business and then you click on the “Plus” button. You can now click on the blue links below to view posts from other bloggers that they have tagged with that word or term.
You can also create lists to make it easier for you to organize your Reader.
What are widgets?
Widgets are small pieces of code that allow you to do nifty things without much effort – for example, add a photo to your sidebar, allow people to follow you via e-mail, or link to your Gravatar profile.
How do I add a widget?
Choose the widget menu and then drag-and-drop the widgets you want into one of the widget areas. Different themes have different widget areas.
Where can I find the Customize menu?
Where do I change my title and tagline?
Go to the Customize menu. Then select site title.
My tagline is not showing up! Why?
First, check that the Display Header Text box is ticked in your Site Title menu.
However, some themes do not display your tagline.
If my tagline isn’t going to show, should I change my theme?
That is up to you, but I would not recommend changing from a theme that you love for something as small. Your tagline will still be visible to search engines and will benefit you for SEO purposes.
What is SEO?
It stands for Search Engine Optimization. Basically, how easy it is for search engines like Google to find you and where your site will be ranked in their search results.
