How to Add a WordPress Blog to Your Weebly Website

You’ve probably seen Weebly’s success around the web — the service offers builders a free, easy way to create stunning websites and blogs. While the service is absolutely free, it does have some limitations. One of its biggest restrictions is that it doesn’t offer any form of content management or blogging functionality.

If you’ve been thinking about creating a blog or have one that you’re planning on moving to Weebly, then this post is for you. We’ll show you how to quickly and easily integrate a WordPress blog into your existing Weebly website.

Choose The Right Blogging Platform

Before you start moving your blog to Weebly, it’s important to pick the right blogging platform. After all, you don’t want to invest a lot of time and effort into a blog only to find out that it doesn’t serve your purpose or that you can’t keep up with the increasing demands of the platform. It’s also worth considering that some blogging platforms are more suitable for certain types of content than others. For example, if you’re planning on writing about fashion, you might want to avoid using a food blogging platform.

There are a variety of blogging platforms out there, each one offering unique features. Some of the more popular ones include WordPress, Blogger, and Tumblr. If you’re curious, you can test out many of these platforms for free by creating a blog at weebly.com.

Deciding which one is best for your needs can be challenging. That’s why we’ve compiled this short list of suggestions, which will help you find the perfect blogging platform for your needs.

WordPress Is The Standard When It Comes To Blogging

When it comes to blogging platforms, WordPress is the standard. The free, open-source platform has been around for a while and has a lot to offer when it comes to building blogs or websites. It’s incredibly flexible and has a wide range of features that can be used to tailor the blog experience to your liking. Plus, there are a variety of pre-designed themes that you can use to bootstrap your blog.

If you’re looking for a blogging platform, then WordPress is a good choice. And, if you ever find yourself thinking about moving your blog to another platform, then it’s worth taking a look at WordPress as a potential option.

How To Add A WordPress Blog To Your Weebly Website

Now that you have your blogging platform selected, it’s time to start figuring out how to integrate it with your existing Weebly website. The first thing you’ll want to do is to create a blog post in the platform of your choice and test it out. Once you’re comfortable with the concept, it’s time to move into production and begin the process of integrating your new blogging platform into your existing website. This article will walk you through the steps necessary to do that.

1. Login to your Weebly account and navigate to the Settings page.

You can access the Settings page of your Weebly website by clicking the gear icon in the top right corner of your screen or by visiting manage.weebly.com. Once there, you’ll see a variety of settings regarding your blog. You can access these settings by clicking the gear icon on the far right of the page.

You’ll notice that the option To add a new blog or website is currently selected. This is because you previously created a blog on Weebly and the setting is still active. While it’s nice that Weebly offers an easy way to get blogging, if you already have one then you might as well continue using it.

2. Click on the Add A Blog button.

This will open up the WordPress dashboard and let you know that you can connect a WordPress blog to your existing Weebly site. If you’ve been paying attention to all the steps, you’ll realize that this is where all the magic happens. WordPress connects your existing site to a WordPress blog that you create and then provides you with all the necessary tools to start blogging right away.

3. Name your new blog and fill out the details.

Give your new blog a suitable name that will make sense to your readers and that contains the keywords that you plan on using in your content. When it comes to blog content, the more relevant the better. After all, your readers are likely to be searching for information about your topic area when they visit your blog. The title of your blog doesn’t have to be lengthy; keep it short and sweet.

You’ll then want to fill out the details about your new blog. This is fairly self-explanatory. You’ll need to provide a description of yourself and your blog. Choose a good profile photo for your blog and make sure to fill out the about me section. Make sure to include your website URL in this section as well. Don’t forget to check the boxes that apply to you regarding the details of your blog. Once you’ve filled out the details, click on the Create Blog button.

You’ll then be brought back to the WordPress dashboard. Congratulations! You have just connected your existing Weebly site to a WordPress blog.

4. Configure the theme and design of your blog.

When you first created your blog on Weebly, you were given the option of selecting a theme that would be used to design your site. While it’s nice that Weebly offers a wide range of themes, if you’re looking for a blogging platform then it’s worth considering free, open-source WordPress as a possible solution.

As a general rule, it’s best to use the same theme for your blog that you used for your site. There’s nothing worse than having a completely different look and feel for your blog and your site. If you’re stuck for a design, then you can choose from one of the many free, publicly available themes that can be found on WordPress.com. If you’re a fan of minimalism, then take a look at the Minimalism Blogger theme. It’s incredibly clean and uncluttered.

Once you’ve found the theme that you like, it’s time to move into the design of your site. The dashboard of your WordPress blog will be your canvas. From here, you can add, remove, and rearrange blocks of content as you see fit. To add your blog to your website as an additional section, go to your site’s Settings page and click on the Additional Services button. From here, you can add the blog section with its related posts and widgets.

There, now you can add a WordPress blog to your Weebly site. You made it!

Keep in mind that if you have more than one website or blog, then this process needs to be repeated for each separate blog or website that you have. If you ever decide that you don’t like the template that you initially chose, then there’s no need to worry. You can change it at any time.
