How to Write A Blog Post
Have you seen all our amazing articles so far this year?
Have you got a hankering to get involved?
If you just want to write a one-off piece or join Phantom Media as a writer, here’s some first steps you can take:
Head to our website (https://phantom-media.co.uk/) but since you’re already here, you can just go to our homepage too.
Hit ‘Get Involved’ along the top bar, right here:
Fill in a Username, that’ll appear on your blog posts, then your details too.
You’ll need to pop in an email address as well, and any website links you might have of your own, like a LinkdIn Profile or blog you might want other people to see.
Tell us a little bit about yourself, you can just put your subject in, some of your interests, or the stuff you like to write about. And don’t forget a strong password!
When you’re logged in, you’ll be able to head to the Dashboard. This is where the magic happens.
Then down the side you’ll see a whole heap of things and you’ll want to head to ‘Posts’.
This is where you can ‘Add New’ to start your own!
Then you’ll be faced with a big empty space ready to be filled, there’s a title bar and a block to get you started. You can either copy and paste from a word document, or just type straight in!
If you want to add any images to your post, and we suggest you do! Follow these simple steps:
Hover over to the end of the block and you’ll get some options. Click ‘Add Image’
Hit ‘Upload’ and that’ll take you to your own documents. Just press ‘choose’ on the one you want and it’ll upload right into your article just like so!:
Then when you’re finished, so our lovely team of editors know that you’re done and want to publish, make sure it’s “Pending Review”
Then it’s ready to submit to the team!
If you do want to become a more substantial part of the team, don’t be shy and message the Phantom Media Facebook Page or email at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll welcome you with open arms!
