Here is your private page where you can watch training videos as you learn to blog.
After you watch all the videos below this one, then come back up here and watch these one.
NEW! In this video, I show you how to make a post with the Weekly Deals graphic. In the video I mention a LINK that you will want to copy and paste so that people can click through to shop the weekly deals with you.
This is the link to copy and paste:
NEW! In this video, I show you how to use PicMonkey to edit your photos. You will be able to rotate a photo if it is sideways.
It’s about adding a watermark, but let’s just focus on watching it to see how to open a photo…then see my instructions under this video for what to click to rotate:
Here’s the link to PicMonkey: http://www.picmonkey.com/
Step 1: To rotate photos, click the Rotate button.
Step 2 & 3: Then when the options open, click either of the rotate buttons enough times till the photo is correct. Then click Apply.
Step 4: Be sure to save your modified photo – save button is near the top of your screen.
NEW! In this video, I show you how to log into Feedburner to view your blog subscribers. You’ll need to have your gmail address and password handy so that you can log into Google. Feedburner is a Google product.

How to Login
Kay, your domain name is stampingwithkay.com and I will be sharing your URL for wordpress login with you.
Using the Admin Bar
The Admin Bar only displays when you are logged in. No one sees it except for you.
Exploring the WordPress Dashboard
You will need to use very few of the things on the dashboard, but it is a good overview of the first screen you see when you login.
Creating a Blog Post
You won’t need to worry about using the “Text” tab for HTML code! Also, don’t worry about the part where he talks about who can view a post. In your blog, everyone will see all the posts.
Using Categories and Tags
You will not be using Tags, but you WILL be using Categories. I have already set up your categories for different type of projects. You won’t have to add new categories, but you will need to learn how to use them. Instead of adding a new category, you will just check one (or more) of the categories in the list.
You won’t have any posts that have “Read More” like he mentions.
Adding Links to Other Pages
Sometimes you might want to use links to connect text in your blog post to another post or maybe something in the Stampin Up store.
How to Properly Link to Your DBWS
Using the Media Library
This can be handy if you want to crop one of the images you upload.
If you want to write posts ahead of time, this is how you can have them automatically post on dates you specify in the future.
