Step 2: Select what you want to edit.

The Manage link will bring you to a list of blog posts. If you want to edit one of these, just search through the list and click the title of the one you wish to edit.

If you want to edit a page, just click the word ‘Pages’ now located just under the Manage link. This will bring you to a similar index of Pages. Just select the title of the page you wish to edit.

Step 3: Edit the page.

All of the content you added previously to your page or post will be displayed. Just click in the field to make any necessary changed.

Step 4: Save!

You don’t want to lose all of that hard work you did! Be sure to save often by clicking the ‘Save’ button located on the right column.

I know that a lot of the readers here don’t want to click through a bunch of links to learn how to do some thing. You want to do, not read! You’d prefer to have a single resource at your finger tips. If that sounds like you, consider Problogger’s eBook written especially for business owners like you.

As a business owner you don’t have the time to take the trial and error approach, you need help from someone who’s done it all before and can show you how to build a successful blog for your business, right from the start.
