Blog Posts

Overview

Your blog is a place for you to tell the story of your brand, share your company ethos, and build a rapport with your customers by allowing them to comment and interact with your posts.

Engaging readers is not only a great way for you to spread the word about your products, but it's also deeply beneficial for search engine optimization (SEO).

While your theme dictates how your blog is visually presented, your Blog and Blog posts are managed within your Shopify admin area under Sales Channels > Blog posts.

You can create new content by selecting Add blog post.
