When you start your art blog in WordPress, you will notice that you can choose to write a post or page. The two are very different and will both will be very beneficial to growing your blog. Post vs page – what is the difference?
In this article, I will share with you the difference between a WordPress post vs page and how they can be used.
Post vs Page Artist WordPress Blog
A page is static and not listed by date. They are commonly used for “about me” pages, reference pages, and links pages. They are usually used for something that will not change.
You can list your page on your menu bar on the top. This is the most common place for the “about me” page. The “about me” page will tell the readers about you and your mission statement. Readers will go there to get an idea of what your site has to offer.
A reference page can be filled with relevant links for your readers to easily find content that they are searching for. By providing a reference page, you are providing a good experience for your readers.
A link page can be used for shoppers to find products to purchase. If you use Print on Demand services, this will be a great place to add the links to those sites. Explain what the sites offer and add a link to the shop. You could also link your social media networks that you use for them to follow you on.
Pages can also be added to the sidebar of your WordPress site. If you have a sales page for a book or a video you can add it on the sidebar for your readers to purchase.
Posts are where you will be providing content that you would like to share with your readers. It will be listed in chronological order on your blog or home page. You can organize your posts into categories making it easier for your readers to find the content that they are searching for. Your posts can also be shown on the sidebar by using a “recent posts” widget and displayed in the RSS feed.
Post vs page will depend on the content that you are sharing and the layout of your site. Use them both to make a better reading experience for your followers and build your audience.
