Summary of this Tutorial:

First let’s look at the title and content boxes since they are the most noticeable areas of a post.

You can edit the url of the post and add media like images, documents and video.

This is the visual editor area and you can switch to the text editor.

Both allow you to type your information but the text editor shows your post with html code.

In the top right you will have publishing options available.

You can save your post as draft or publish it how you would like.

You are also able to organize your posts into categories and lets you add tags that are relevant to the post.

The screen options area lets you clean up your area to remove items you never use or to add items as you need it.

To show or hide these, just checked or uncheck the boxes and the areas will show down here.

Send trackbacks allows you to notify other blog owners that you have linked to their blog content.

If you have plugins installed, then you might have other options on the screen as well but these have been the default WordPress features.
