When you do Wordpress for the first time:

If you do not have a WordPress account, you need to set one up before you can post.

How to set up a WordPress account

You received an invite from jewishartsalon@gmail to be a “contributor”. Open that email.

Before you  click on “accept invitation” first go to  wordpress.com 

Click on “create a website” (even though you have no intention to create a website)

At bottom right: click on :”sign up for just a username:”

Fill out your email address and create a username and a password. Make sure to save these somewhere because you will need these every time you create a post.

You will land on a WordPress page. Top right of page: Click on the round icon (between the pencil icon and the bell icon)

You will be asked to create a profile: First name, last name, public display name.

Click on “Save profile”

THEN go back to the invite email from jewishartsalon and click on ‘Accept”.

To create a post: 2 step process

STEP 1 – TEXT
