Writing an Excerpt

Directly beneath the blog post editor module is the Excerpt module, shown in Figure 9-3, where you can enter a summary of your blog post.
 
Entering an excerpt in this text box is entirely up to you. The excerpt can be used as the description in search engine results pages, so it can be helpful to take a few minutes to write a well-crafted, intriguing excerpt to try to convince people who find your post via keyword searches to click through and visit your blog to read the complete post.
