Blog Structure – Blog Writing Series (5)

Blogging - Spoke in genealogical wheel

Copyright Julie Goucher, May 2020

In this post we are going to look at posts and pages and if there are differences.

Firstly, assuming you are reading this, then you are reading a blog post. Posts can be written at any time and scheduled to post at a later time. They can also be part written then saved, in which case they are draft posts.

When you first create your blog site you can also specify if you want readers to land on a static page or just to the most current post. This blog is scheduled to show the most recent post, which will be this one, until I write or publish the next post, although you can change that at any time.

If you look up to the black banner at the top, which is the menu bar, you will see a number of headings – the last one is Surname Research and if you click that link you will be reading a blog page. As I write so much about One-Name and surname research I created a landing page which has the posts and series relating to surnames collated together on one page. To achieve this I write the name of the category and then link to the category posts.

This is part of my Blog Writing Series. Next we are going to look at writing a blog post.
