1. General – This is where you would update your sites title and description (make sure it is keyword rich). You would also update the date and time to display on your site.
2 – Writing – Customizing the way your posts are written (recommended to leave all the information as default)
3 – Reading – This area is where you can choose how your website is “read”. You can choose to either show your blog posts on the front page of yours site or even choose a static page for your front page.
You can also choose how many posts are displayed at one time – for example if you only want to show 5 posts on the front page, simply change the default number to five, and how to adjust RSS syndication feed features to determine how the information from your site is sent to a reader’s web browser or other applications.
4 – Discussion – In this setting you can control how people interact on your blog. For example, are comments autoposted or approval needed.
5 – Media – This area is where you can specify the maximum dimensions to use when inserting an image into a post (leave these as default)
7 – Permalinks – Create a custom URL structure for your permalinks and archives.
