How to Add a Post from a Website to Your WordPress Blog
One of the most fun parts of being a blogger is associating with other bloggers. You get to peek into their lives through their blogs, and you can learn a lot from their content. One of the things you can learn is how to add posts from other blogs to your WordPress blog.
In this article, we will discuss the steps required to add a post from a website to your WordPress blog. If you’re looking to do this, it’s a good idea to read through the whole article before taking action.
Step 1: Find The Post You Want To Import
The first step is to identify the post you want to import. Start by going to the source blog and looking through their archives. Find the one that caught your attention the most, and read through it thoroughly. Make a note of all the relevant information: the title, the date, and the brief description of what the post is about. You can also make a note of any unique selling points within the post that you might want to incorporate into your own content.
Step 2: Copy The Article To Your Own Blog
After you’ve thoroughly read through the post you’ve chosen, it’s time to start taking action. When you’ve found a blog you want to work with, go to the contact page and send them a note asking if they’re interested in collaborating. Give a brief explanation of what you’ve found and why you think it’s relevant to their niche. It’s also a good idea to link to the article you’ve found so they can check out what you’re working on.
Step 3: Edit The Article As Necessary
Now that you’ve got the go-ahead to add the post to your blog, it’s time to start editing. When you get the notification from the other blog that they’re interested in working with you, click on the link and then click on the “edit” tab located at the top of the page. Begin making changes where you feel necessary. Be sure to add your own style to the content so it reads effortlessly. You can always go back and edit the post at any time, so feel free to make as many edits as you need until the post reflects your voice.
Step 4: Publish The Post To Your Blog
Once you’ve made all the necessary edits and additions to the article, it’s time to push your content out into the world. When you’ve reached this point, go to the “publish” tab located at the top of the page. Select a platform, and then click on “Publish.”
Congratulations! You’ve just added a post from another blog to your WordPress blog. The post will appear in your content area along with the rest of your content as usual. Additionally, you can repurpose the content in a number of ways. You can pull quotes, images, or videos into a standalone piece. Or, you can create a blog post entirely from the content you’ve imported.
