Posts and Pages
.. from Joyce..
The best way to explain the difference between pages and posts, is that pages are not time related, whereas posts are. In a blog, the latest post always moves to the top of the queue and is the first thing shown on the homepage. It then gradually moves down and off the homepage, as you add other posts.
Pages such as About (should contain some info about you and reason for your blog) and others you may add, are static. They don’t move into the archive.
