    I typed the blog and edited but can’t get it to show up as published. How do I get from Draft to published?

    The blog I need help with is grandmagrace.wordpress.com.

    There is a blue button that says “Publish” on the right-hand side of the screen as you are editing a blog post. Clicking that button should publish the draft blog post. You may be interested in this video, which has an overview of how to save and return to draft posts: http://wordpress.tv/2009/01/14/saving-and-returning-to-draft-posts-pages/

    If you still have questions, let me know and I will do my best to answer them!

    Thanks. I use larger text than the people who design these pages, so the blue button was off-screen. I am accustomed to having to scroll down to find buttons, but did not realize I might also have to scroll right.

    Ah, yes, that can be tricky. You can actually change that, to avoid having to scroll right. When you are editing a post, in the upper right-hand corner there is a Screen Options button. If you click on that, a little options menu drops down. Look for the option for Number of Columns and pick 1.

    That way, all of the boxes will line up in one column so you only have to scroll down to find them. I hope that helps!
