This is an example blog post. You can create as many posts as you like. WordPress uses blocks to create blog posts. While you can disable the blocks and use the classic editor, I’d recommend that you go ahead and get used to the blocks now. They’re where all the action is, and they really aren’t too hard to get used to.

You’ll choose the type of block you need for each section of content. This is a paragraph block. You’ll use lots of paragraph blocks in your blog posts. Just hit enter to get a new paragraph block.

This is a heading (H2) block

Use headings to break up your text and help readers find what they’re looking for quickly and easily. Headings are in a hierarchy, with the top level being H2 (H1 is your post/page title), followed by H3 & H4.

This is an H3 (subheading) block

In addition to paragraphs and headings, you can also use lists to make your text easier to read. Just choose a list block. Here’s an example of an unordered (bulleted) list:

  • List item 1
  • List item 2
  • List item 3
  • List item 4

You can also use ordered (numbered) lists like this one:

  1. List item 1
  2. List item 2
  3. List item 3
  4. List item 4

This is an H4 (minor heading) block

Another block you might want to use is the quote block.

This is what a quote block looks like.

You can also add a table to your blog post with the table block.

This is a 2 column tableIt has 2 columns and 2 rows

Adding images is easy with image blocks. You can add a single image, and choose to align it to the right, left, or center.

You can also add an image gallery with the gallery block.

These are just a few of the blocks available for everyone on WordPress. Take some time to check out all the blocks that are available to you, since your theme and plugins may include some unique blocks. For example, if you have a WooCommerce shop, you will see Woo Blocks that allow you to feature products within your post.
