Tutorial: Write your first WordPress post and syndicate it out
For this tutorial, we assume that you successfully setup and configured your Wordpress-based Indie Website. Now it is time to post!
Post to the Indie Web
Here are the steps:
|1.||After you have logged into your WordPress installation through your browser, select "New" and then "Post" from from the top navigation bar.|
|2.|| Find a catchy title and write to your heart's delight!
When you are done, set the post kind to the kind of post it is in the sidebar.
|3.||Also tag the post and assign it to the right category of posts on your site, so the search engines can find it more easily.|
|4.||Select "Bridgy publish to ..." and the silos that you want to publish your post to, and then click "Publish".|
|5.||Visit Twitter, Facebook or whatever other silos you syndicated your post post to. While they may not get the update instantaneously, they usually have it rather quickly.|
|6.||Watch comments come in. Your friends might be commenting on Instagram or Twitter, but your WordPress site will end up with copies of their comments.|
