Here are some tips.
First and foremost, I highly recommend copying and pasting your articles into Word or some other program just as a backup. Also, save frequently as you write your article. If your internet had a blip or the site did, and you click save after writing everything, it could be lost. Sometimes I will even highlight everything, click Control-C to copy, and then save. That way I have the content copied in case I get an error or issue.

If you would like to do formatting in the article, you can click Quicktags to the left of the text entry box.
Use this to create a link somewhere. Replace the dummy text with the actual URL and the text you want to appear on the site.
Use this to bold text, and just replace "text" with the words you want.
To do bullets, just use an asterisk where you would want a bullet and it will show as a bullet.
