Instructions for new Writers

Congratulations on becoming a Footy Blog writer!

Welcome to the team, it’s great to have you involved with the blog! Below I’ve compiled a few screenshots showing how you can use the blog to make new posts. The site is running on WordPress and so it’s pretty simple to use once you’ve understood the basics.

If you’re having problems or want any help then don’t hesitate to email me, I’d be happy to help out.

By the way – approximately 25% of the websites on the internet use WordPress. Being able to use it is a very marketable skill – so don’t forget to add it to your CV / LinkedIn profile, if you’re looking for a simple way to attract an employer (either as a journalist, or some other web-based job).

Also if you wanted to gain experience running the social media channels of the blog (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) then don’t hesitate to get in touch with me – this is another very marketable skill, which also looks great on your CV!
