This is just stuff in a grey box. Other people use it as top-level information, it sticks at the top of the blog. You don't need this, you can keep it off.

To make posts, look in the right panel and click create and edit posts. Existing posts will be on the left side of that screen, writing posts is on the right side.

Example: https://laist.com/live-updates/2022-election-results-california-primary

Create a live blog: https://studio.npr.org/login?ec=302&startURL=%2Fs%2Farticle%3Fname%3DGrove-Live-Blog-Creating-a-Parent-Blog

Create a post: https://studio.npr.org/login?ec=302&startURL=%2Fs%2Farticle%3Fname%3DGrove-Live-Blog-Creating-a-Post

Editorial Strategy: https://studio.npr.org/s/article?name=Grove-Live-Blog-strategy-editorial

Best Practices:

Keep each post short. Things get lost with the longer posts, really hard on mobile. Being concise is key, think a tweet and a half

Headlines keep on the shorter side. These are posts as children of the parent live blog, so they can be two or three words because the parent live blog headline has the context.

Emojis are usable without too much trouble, embed videos and photos, be conversational and keep it easy to read
