Small Changes, Big Impact

One of my favorite things about WordPress is that it gives you so much control and so many options! While it might seem a bit overwhelming at first, I can guarantee you’ll soon get the hang of it! I always suggest that clients take a look around all the different tabs just to get an idea of where everything is and what it does.

Ready to make your newly launched blog a little more professional looking? I’m sharing a few WordPress blog tricks to get you started on the right foot.

QUICK TIPS

Under your blog’s “Settings”, you can customize some basic things to make your blog look more professional. Under “General” Set your blog name and tagline — the default one is not what you want. You can also select how dates are shown here as well.

Under “Reading”, you can make your homepage static to look more like a website and select a different page where your blog posts will appear. For traditional blogs, you’ll probably just want to leave this as is!

And lastly! Permalinks. I highly recommend that you change your permalinks to the Post Name structure. It’s better for SEO purposes and looks much cleaner than the basic one!
