Pages vs. posts

It’s important to know whether to create a page or post for your blog, and how to organize them for your reader.

Pages generally contain information that rarely changes. If it’s a course, blog, it may have an instructor’s office hours, contact information,  or the semester’s schedule. If it’s a project or group blog, it may have an “About this Project” page, individual pages on each group member, or specific pages related to the project’s content.

Posts can be used to have ephemeral content such as notes on current news or a journal entry. Posts can be tagged with categories as well as keywords (called tags), whereas pages cannot.
