How to create a “blog” page

If you’ve decided to go for a static front page on your WordPress.com site, you’ll probably want a “Blog” page, where all your posts will be listed out. You’ll also probably want that page to be on your menu. Here’s how to do it…

  1. Go to Pages > Add New and enter your page title as “Blog”, or whatever you’d like to call it. Leave the page content empty and hit the “Publish” button on the right hand side.
  2. Go to Settings > Reading. The second drop-down box at the top allows you to select your “posts” page. This is the page that will list out your blog posts. Click the little down arrow and then click on “Blog”, or whatever you called your page. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Save Changes”.
  3. If your new “Blog” page doesn’t appear in your menu, you’ll need to add it manually. This will probably be as simple as going to Appearance > Menus, checking your new “Blog” page on the left hand side and clicking “Add to Menu”. You can then re-order the menu items by dragging them, if needed. If you need more help with customizing your menu, here’s WordPress.com’s official guide.

All the best,
James
