You select the “Write” menu choice and then the “Write Post” submenu choice. Then you start writing using the html editor. You also can switch to html view if you are an html coder. Otherwise it is like a word processor limited to the features of html pages.
Remember to add a title and select one or more categories on the right side bar.
