Using WordPress tools allows bloggers to alter the look and features of their blog. I am now adding pages to this blog that are often referred to as “About the Author Page,” “Book Page,” and “Activities Page.” The present “Home Page” that you are looking at now is going to become a greeting and navigation page to link you to other sections of the blog. One page that I have that is slightly different that in the usual blog is that I have a “Contact Page” which describes my business consulting activities that I do for individuals and corporations.
Adding these pages and content to them is reasonably straightforward, and WordPress offers on-line help should you run into problems. If you have a blog and you are puzzled how to add pages to it, on your home page when you scroll down you will find a “tools symbol.” Clicking on this will open a window on the left hand side of the screen. Among the options are “add a page.” Clicking on this will allow you to compose a new heading on the screen which looks like a regular blog-post screen, but it will post your headline as the title of your new page. It will provide you a place to add content, Pay Pal purchase buttons (which you have to initially set up with PayPal), videos and/or photos and one or more “contact me” slots for whatever goods, services or activities you might be offering. These may be removed, changed, or edited as needed.
Anything that you have been able to add as blog features that you have used on your Home Page and variations on that, you will also be able to incorporate into your new page or pages. If you want more features, you can upgrade your blog to a higher level at any stage. You do not have to start all over again. If you decide to reformat your Home Page you have the option of creating a static page where the content will remain relatively unchanged which describes what your blog is all about and has links to your other subsidiary pages. If you elect to use this options do not be distraught if it appears that all of your previous posts have disappeared. They have not. They are just in a holding state ready for you to re-post on your new page dedicated to your new blog entries.
The division of blogs into pages allows the reader to quickly access the sections of the blog that he is most interest in without having to claw through everything else to discover your most recent delightful or useful post. If you want to see a blog that is too generalized I have a ready example in one of my own, http://www.hoveyhunts.com. While it tells about everything I do, most people prefer separate ones for my activities, which I do for my knife blog http://www.hoveysknivesofchinablog.co.
