Creating and publishing a blog post on a mac can be a seamless experience if you know the correct steps to follow. You can do it using several platforms, but for this tutorial, we’ll be using WordPress, a popular blogging platform.
Step 1: Download and Install WordPress
You can download and install WordPress directly from their website. After the download, open the downloaded file, you will see a WordPress icon. Drag and drop this icon to your applications folder to install it.
Unfortunately, the installation process doesn’t involve any source code, but it’s a simple drag and drop process that you can do through your Mac’s interface.
Step 2: Create your New Blog Post
Open your WordPress application and log in. Navigate to the posts page and click on the “Add New” button.
Step 3: Write your Content
Now you can start writing your blog post. Add a title in the title bar and write your content in the content box. You can add images by clicking on “Add Media” button.
Step 4: Save and Publish
When you are done writing, click the “Save Draft” button to save your work. You can preview your post by clicking the “Preview” button. When you are satisfied with your content, click the “Publish” button to make your post live.
Adding Source Code to Your Blog Post on Mac
If you’re writing a technical blog post and need to include some code, WordPress offers a way to do that too. You can wrap your multi-line source code with
tags. Here’s an example:
<br> def hello_world():<br> print("Hello, world!")<br> hello_world()<br>
For inline source code, simply wrap it in <strong> tags like so: <strong>print(“Hello, world!”)</strong>.
Publishing a blog post on a Mac, especially one that includes source code, is quite straightforward with WordPress. Follow the steps above to get started with your first blog post.
