  • Choose the design of your blog
  • Improve your blog’s functionality
  • Your blog articles should be moderated for comments.
  • Along with several other crucial tasks!

Your dashboard is easy to find:

  • After your domain name, append /wp-admin to the end of the domain name (e.g.com/wp-admin)
