5 Easy Steps to Add a Blog Post to Your New Website

1. Post Directly in the Blog

Yes, most of us would prefer a “copy & paste” process. But copy and paste, both from a word doc or Google Drive doc, OR from another website, isn’t going to work well. Here’s why:

  1. When I copy and paste from a word doc, there is hidden code which will cause the post to look different on various browsers. In other words, the post layout won’t look the same.
  2. Copying and pasting from another website will have the same code problems AND will be looked at by Google as “duplicate content.” We don’t want this.
