  1. The + Write button at the top right corner in your Toolbar when logged into your WordPress.com account
  2. Go to My Site(s) → Site → Posts. Click on Add new post.

Adding images, video, and audio

You can add galleries, slideshows, and individual images to posts and pages. If you’d like to upload videos to your site, we offer VideoPress in plans like Premium, Business, and eCommerce, however, you can also easily embed videos from services like YouTube & Vimeo.

Each new WordPress.com site comes with 3GB of free storage for files and images. If you need additional storage space, or you’d like to upload audio to your site, there are multiple plan upgrades to choose from.
