How do you add multiple sections to a blog page?

I'm only able to add multiple blocks to my blog, not sections.

Sections are a fairly recent addition to Squarespace, introduced with version 7.1. They can only be added to Pages.

You cannot add Sections to Blog Posts, you can only add Blocks.

What is that you want to do? What would go into the "sections?" Blog posts? Categories? Depending on what you want I might be able to help make your blog look like it has sections, similar to this:

I'm trying to have two text blocks side by side that are formated to be an equal length in distance regardless of whether one text block has more text in it than the other. I find if one is half as long, the other side of my blog page is shifted by that difference if that makes sense.

It isn't hard to do what you want. I would start with a blank blog post.  7.0 creates a totally blank page, 7.1 adds a title spot and one text block. Add a spacer and move it to the right of the text block, which will shift to the left. Click the space block and you will get the +  add on at the top of the block, add a text block and it should lay over top of it. Then you will have two blocks side by side. I did this on my site and my 7.1 sandbox site.

yes but the problem arises when the text blocks/headers aren't the same length, causing the things below to shift with their size difference. Maybe I am missing something or someone as skilled as you can share a secret to correct this, I'm all ears!
