Continuing from How to Embed a Radio Station on Your Website, we guide you through the next steps on how to create a blog for your radio station.

Create a Blog for Your Radio Station

Add a New Page

When you've logged into your Radio Station Website Builder, you should go ahead and select Pages, then click the + button to add a new page, and finally select Blog.

Adding A Page

Now head back to Build to begin customising your blog.

Embed a Play Button

One thing that you should always have on your blog is a way for visitors to easily tune into your radio station - Using Radio.co's embeddable players, you can simply drag and drop a player directly onto your blog.

Start off by grabbing the embed code widget in the side bar and dropping it into a place where listeners can easily access the button.

Embed Code

Now you simply need to add your player's code within the widget - If you haven't already, grab your player's HTML code from your Radio.co dashboard.

Copy Player Embed Code

Finally back in your website builder, click Edit Custom HTML on your widget and drop in your player's code, you should have a nice little player for all to access your radio station - Keep in mind that having a play button might not be enough to get people to tune in, so add or edit text on screen to create a prompt for your visitors.

Build Your First Blog Post

The core of your blog should revolve around brilliantly crafted content, and with Radio.co's website builder you can easily add blog posts with just a few clicks! Get started by selecting New Post.

Edit your post's title so visitors know what your content's about, then drag the Text block from the sidebar onto your post to create a space where you can add some content.

Add Text Block

You can add more blocks to your post to include features like an image gallery or a slideshow to show off things like an event you attended or new radio equipment.

Once you're happy with everything select Post to set it live.

Publish Your Website

Finally in Build mode select Publish to get it online so everyone can see the changes you've made to your website – You will be presented with your site’s chosen URL which you can follow to see it in action!

Publish Your Website

That's all there is to it! Radio.co's website builder is super easy to use and allows you to simply create spectacular blogs like www.idealstation.co/blog.
