Hooray! You're starting your first website, and I (Lauren from Restored 316) am so excited for you! I remember all those years ago when I first opened WordPress for the first time and the overwhelm that ensued, so friend I've been in your shoes!
Thankfully we have a huge resource of tutorials to help you get started, and you can find all those right here.
This post is your very first WordPress post that you can go in and edit at any time.
To edit a post
Navigate to POSTS > ALL POSTS and hover over any title of the posts you'd like to edit and you'll see a edit button pop up. Click edit and you will be taken to a new screen where you can edit your post by adding your own text and images much like you would in a program like Word or Pages.
To create your own post
Navigate to POSTS > ADD NEW. Give your post a name, write some content, set your featured post, and hit the publish button on the top right! It's really THAT easy!
