Creating Your First Post (Preview)

Explanation

It all starts with your first post!  How exciting!  At the end of this lesson you are going to have a place on the interwebs that has your “stuff” on it. Think of how famous you will soon be! Once you get your first post up and going, we can start talking about how to add photos, video, famous quotes, etc.  Watch out world, you have arrived.

Frustration Alert

Learning to create your first post is the first step toward an exciting future.  It is sort of like learning how to add 2 + 2 so you can start your journey toward calculus.  You will likely find this part easy, but if you find it difficult, push on!  Once you have this lesson under control, future ones will be easy.
