Step 3 – Give title to your post and start typing your new post

Step 4 – Format the new post

If you are copying post from another place. Before copying to the new post screen, first copy the post to notepad to remove all existing formatting and then copy to the new post screen shown below.

For Sharing Our Experiences we are following the below pattern – All Headings are added as Heading 3 and sub headings are added as Heading 2 This is how you can format your post.

Step 5- On the right hand side you will see option to “Save a draft” of your post, “Preview your post”. Use that to save drafts at frequent intervals and preview your post to ensure that they look good.

Once you are done you can “Submit your post”. If you are writing for Sharing Our Experiences then just let me know and I will review the post and publish it.
