How to Blog WordPress Dashboard

The body goes here. I would suggest writing your blog on Word so that you can check for spelling and have the  content saved just in case you crash.

All content must have at least one Link to your website or social network and perhaps a link to a magazine, news article or website which hits on your content. Please look at online magazines, online newspaper and popular blogs for examples of how it’s done. You will notice that the title of the blog is just like a newspaper or magazine heading. The creation of your title automatically becomes your URL – this is why you must have keywords so that it is grabbed for SEO. Again, look at magazines and newspapers – keep the title short and to the point and right on the subject. Top Tens are very popular with readers as they know they are usually going to read a top ten list that hits the points and is easy to read and navigate.

The body of the blog is to be laid out just like any online magazine or newspaper  – paragraph breaks, images and videos. The bar above has basic document editing such as Bold, Italics and bullet points. On the right of text alignment  – left, center and right, you will notice two Link symbols. This is how we link your blog to another website. In order to do this you must highlight the area in your blog you wish to post the link – you can highlight a letter, word or paragraph. Highlight it then click the Link on the left. An Insert Link pop up box…pops up. You enter the web URL address in full and click Add Link. To change your mind – you can break the link by highlighting the link and then clicking the broken Link symbol.

It’s best to have an image with every post as we tend to bark at too much text. I’m going to publish this and then post a new blog with an image.

Before you click the Publish button on the right. Enter Tags below – this is for your SEO. Tags are keywords to do with your blog post. Click Add. If you don’t want to Publish just yet -perhaps you want to back up a few posts and publish them at different times, you can click on Save Draft on the top right. You can also click on Preview to see if your post is looking how you want it – paragraphs, images, links, etc. Below the Publish button is Categories. This is to sort/file your blog posts into relevant groups. For instance, you can Add New Category for one of your subjects. Whenever your blog post is about that subject you can click on that Category and after it is published it will be filled on your blog for readers to see all the blog posts to do with this particular subject.

Even after you’ve published a post, you can still go back to edit it in the Dashboard or delete it or hide it for future publishing.

Okay, Publish this and now I’m on to an imaged blog post.

Ansel Adams Los Angeles at drkrm Gallery

Ansel Adams Los Angeles

February 18 -March 17, 2012

Opening Reception Saturday, February 18, 2012 7-10pm

 

drkrm is pleased to present Ansel Adams Los Angeles, rarely seen photographs that reveal the lost landscape and lifestyle of a prewar Los Angeles. These nostalgic images represent Ansel Adams as a photojournalist on assignment for Fortune Magazine in 1939. Ansel Adams Los Angeles will be on display from February 18 through March 17, 2012.

 

In 1939 Los Angeles had a population of 1.5 million. The cost of gas was 10 cents and a new car was $700. It was the year The Wizard of Oz and Gone With The Wind were released. Francis Ford Coppola, Ralph Lauren and Lee Harvey Oswald were born. Amelia Earhart was officially pronounced dead and President Roosevelt initiated the Manhattan Project. The U.S. began rearming for World War II and the prestigious Ansel Adams was commissioned by Fortune Magazine to photograph a series of images for an article covering the aviation industry in the Los Angeles area. For the project, Adams took over 200 black & white photographs showing everyday life, businesses, street scenes and a variety of other subjects. But when the article, City of the Angels, appeared in the March 1941 issue, only a few of the images were included.

In the early 1960s Adams rediscovered the photographs among papers at his home in Carmel and donated them to the Los Angeles Public Library. He wrote in a letter: “The weather was bad over a rather long period and none of the pictures were very good… I would imagine that they represent about $100.00 minimum value… At any event, I do not want them back.” But as many critics will agree, sometimes an artist is not always the best judge of their own work.

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) created some of the most influential photographs ever made; he was one of this century’s leading exponents of environmental values. It seems that every third family in America has an Adams’ poster on the wall, images that were difficult to make but easy to love. His images portray a romanticized and unspoiled Western American landscape, but Ansel Adams Los Angeles is a whole other body of work that is rarely discussed, let alone seen.

drkrm, in association with EVFA, and with the cooperation of the Los Angeles Public Library, will create and exhibit new silver-gelatin prints made from the original negatives. These dramatic black and white limited-edition photographs, on display to the public for the first time, will be offered for purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the LAPL.

Ansel Adams Los Angeles is part of Pacific Standard Time. Pacific Standard Time is an unprecedented collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California, coming together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene. Initiated through grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time will take place for six months beginning October 2011.

Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.

 

drkrm is an exhibition space dedicated to the display and survey of popular cultural images, fine art photography, cutting edge and alternative photographic processes. drkrm is located at 727 S. Spring Street in the Gallery Row district of Downtown Los Angeles.
