To add a blog post for a space, you require 'Create Blog' permission which is assigned by a space administrator. See Space permissions or contact a space administrator for more information.

From the Dashboard

You can add a blog post to any space from the Dashboard, without having to browse to that space.

To add a blog post from the Dashboard:

  1. Click Add Blog Post at the top right of the Dashboard.
  2. Select the space where you want to add the blog post.
  3. Click Next. Confluence will open the Add Blog Post screen in edit mode.
  4. Type your content as you would for any other page in Confluence.
  5. Preview and click Save when you are finished.

From Any Page

You can add a blog post from any page (other than the Dashboard) in the space.

To add a blog post from any page:

  1. Click Add near the top right of the page and choose Blog Post. Confluence will open the Add Blog Post screen in edit mode.
  2. Type your content as you would for any other page in Confluence.
  3. Preview and click Save when you are finished.
Notes
  • Add labels if you want to categorise information this way.
  • If you want to backdate your blog post, edit the date in Posting Date. You cannot set a date after today's. Also, you can only set the date when creating the blog post, not when editing it.
  • You can view the blog for the current space by opening the Browse menu and selecting Blog. Your blog post should be listed.

What is a blog post?
Confluence blog posts are special pages found in the 'blog' section of each space. They can be announcements, journal entries, status reports or any other timely information you would categorise as a blog entry or 'news'.

For more information about working with blogs, please see the documentation.
