# Create & publish posts
Blog posts are intentionally structured very similarly to regular products. This means that the creation and publication requires almost the same steps.
# Create post
You can create posts in the admin under
Catalogues > Blog posts by clicking on the button
It is important that you give the post a name, of course, because it is a mandatory field. Afterwards you can click on the button
Save to save the post.
Now you can write your content for the post via the tab
# Publish post
Creating a post is not enough to display it in the storefront. Apart from the one-time setup the following points must be in place:
- The blog post must be active.
- The blog post must have a main category OR a category.
- The blog post must be associated with a sales channel.
If everything is correct so far, the blog posts should appear in the storefront. Have fun writing them!
