Looking for tips on better blogging?

Whether you’re a WordPress.com veteran or blogging newbie, the updated version of Learn WordPress.com is sure to teach you something that you don’t already know.

The tutorial contains ten short sections on popular topics such as:

We’ve also added a section called 10 Super Awesome Insider Tips. It contains pointers on how to use some of our coolest (but easily overlooked) features like Distraction Free Writing, which expands the text editor and hides the modules on the publishing screen, to help you stay focused while you create content.

So have a look and tell us what you learned! And if there’s anything you want to know more about, be sure to let us know.

    ! :D Thanks you so much !

    This is a good start! I have saved it for future use, however for newbies like me an indepth tutorial on the dashboard and appearance would be helpful. My attempts at making it look better are miserable. I can’t seem to get a picture on with the coloring. How???? Help???? I feel intimidated about putting more posts on while I can’t even get it to look okay.

  6. Mikalee Byerman

    Looking forward to accessing these. I only wish there’d be more info on the customized fonts — I became WAY confused while trying to install mine (although, I’ll admit this from the outset: I’m SO not a techie!).

    Thanks for the resources.

    Thank you, very helpful.

    I don’t understand how anyone can write a post without using Distraction Free Writing mode.
    It’s just so much easier to focus.

  9. tenbrokenbullets

    LOVE IT!
    I’m happy that you’ve included a section for personalizing your site’s appearance. It’s something I’ve personally been trying to work on since my first blog! =)

  13. Pigeon Heart

    thank you~ this is helpful and encouraging. Can you tell me though, how does one get onto the ”freshly pressed” section?

  14. mummyinmanolos

    I was hoping to find a course somewhere so someone could physically teach me at a venue that’s real…not cyber – I need to move a margin over more to the left, but cannot for the LIFE of me find out how – also not sure what half the widgets do and how they can improve my site – I also want to link to other sites by highlighting the word, like you have above by highlighting words in blue…probably really basic, but haven’t a clue!! Would you know of any courses I could attend in the Buckinghamshire area? You might not know….are you in the States? Do you have any lovely UK people I could speak to? Thanks – Liz

    Hello everyone I would have to respond to the font issue. I think it’s not a good thing that we have such a hard time changing out fonts. This should be available for all members, Blogger has a ton of fonts and that’s why I use there service.

    • Sheri

      Thank you for your feedback. We’ve setup customizing fonts as just one part of the optional paid Custom Design upgrade. The upgrade includes font licensing through Typekit as well as access to add any CSS you’d like. We hope that if you enjoy using the basic services at WordPress.com for free, you will also be willing to purchase an upgrade for things like customization options.

  40. Annoyed Conservative Christian

    I am really glad wordpress has given me a place to share my thoughts!

  41. Heather

    Wow!! It seems like every day I get a feeling that I only know the tip of the iceberg that’s available with WordPress.

    And to think, this isn’t even the pay version. I know the pay version grants lots more access and as each day goes by I consider signing up for the pay version and getting my own domain.

    I’m so happy I switched from Blogger. WordPress makes so many things so much easier for people who are just starting out. *sigh*
