Using Your Dashboard

After logging in, you’ll be directed to your Dashboard, the information central for your new site.

The “Right Now” area displays basic information about your site such as your current number of pages, number of blog posts, and comment information.

The “Recent Comments” area allows you to see comments posted by your blog readers. You can choose to approve or delete (put them in the trash) comments in this area, or mark them as spam.

Take note of the navigation along the left side of your dashboard. The links to Posts, Pages, and Media will be covered in other tutorials.
