This weekend I’ve seen two different sites with the default tagline, “Just another weblog.” This is the default tagline which uses for every new site when it’s created. The tagline of your site is displayed by most WordPress themes in the header section of your blog. It’s like a byline. It’s a good idea to change this default tagline either to something appropriate for your site (which gives visitors more information about it) or to delete it completely. The image below shows two sites with the default tagline, and another (our family learning blog  – technically a self-hosted WordPress site) with a customized tagline.

To change your site tagline, log into and visit your blog’s DASHBOARD. Then click SETTINGS – GENERAL in the left sidebar.

Next, change your TAGLINE at the top of the page and click SAVE CHANGES at the bottom.

If you see sites (or self-hosted WordPress sites) with the generic tagline, please share this post with the site authors so they can customize their site tagline!
