Here are some tips for getting rid of stock elements of a WordPress blog:
Dump the username title (e.g., “Phill123′s Blog”) and the stock description (“Just another wordpress blog”). Click on “settings” in the Dashboard and replace it with a title that’s more specific to the content of your blog. Remember, what you’re doing here is building a portfolio of multimedia work about the New Paltz campus community.
Get rid of all the stock posts — such as “Hello World” — by going to “All Posts” and deleting the ones you don’t want.
Get rid of all stock widgets, such as “Blogroll.” Go to Appearance>Widgets to rename or replace your widgets.
Anything visual on your blog theme — such as a masthead photo — should be your own.
Categorize your posts to make them more searchable. You might also want to use tags. Categories are general, like the headings on a table of contents. Tags are more specific, comparable to listings in an index.
Write a fetching “About” section. Blogs tend to have a personal voice. Tell us about yourself and your interests. Include a photo.
