Sometimes the back end of your blog can seem a little daunting. You’re in there wanting to publish something with minimal effort and maximum effect, and you don’t want to hang about for too long, right? You just want to publish that post!

I totally get that, but it’s a good idea to take the time to familiarise yourself with the back of your blog, starting with the toolbar in the editing window. This toolbar is different in Blogger and Worpdress, but there are the core icons/buttons that will be the same.

Hover your mouse over every SINGLE icon in your editing toolbar and find out what each little button can do for you. These buttons are your friend and it doesn’t make sense to use only one or two of them because you are scared to mess up your formatting or make a mistake.

Create a test post and use those icons/buttons to make columns, add audio, justify, add jump breaks and generally format the heck out of things. Don’t be afraid to use the formatting options! Get to know your blog’s back end inside and out!
