Should I always use blog page for blogs

Recommended Posts

So on my site I would like to have a blog page. Is there any advantage to having a standard format blog page over a  portfolio page and having more freedom to do what I want? Basically, If I am creating a blog should I  always use the standard blog page and work from that?

Always use the blog page, and if you want a bit more flexibility as to how your site visitors get to it, and are introduced to it and the individual posts, then make a summary page, which is a page with summary blocks, 30 posts per block, and blocks can be chained together on one page. I have this kind of set up and it works really well. I put the actual blog page in the unlinked section of my site and let the summary page become the  blog page.  Like this: https://myrandomviews.com/storysummary

The actual blog page is here but not on the Nav bar:https://myrandomviews.com/stories

Thank You, Derrik!
I really like this approach. I am about to rebuild my site in the next month or so. And I want a place for stories, but not a normal blog. Your approach looks perfect for me. Thanks for sharing.
