Easy peasy. If you want some pictures to guide you, please refer to the corresponding steps below.

1. Aggregate a new page.

Aggregate a new page in WordPress Add a new page in WordPressStart the session on the WordPress paneau and click on Pages > Add New. This step is pretty self-explanatory. Since you already have a business website there and want to add a blog, you’ll need a page for your blog to live on. You don’t want it to invade other pertinent information on the page.2. Name the page.

2. Assign a name to the page.

Let’s call it “Blog” for easy identification. Leave the text box blank because you want the page to act as a source for your posts, not a static reading page.

3. Publish the page.

Para que su página de blog se active, debe publicarla. No se preocupe por el destino de las publicaciones todavía; lo abordaremos más adelante.

4. Navegue a la sección Configuración .

Configuración de lectura del sitio web de WordPress WordPress Website Reading Settings When you’re in your Dashboard, you’ll see a column along the left with all the different things you can do in WordPress. Go to Settings > Reading to bring up the page seen above.

5. Designate a Posts page.

Click on A static page, and then select Blog under the drop-down menu for Posts page. This is important. This step determines where your blog feed appears. Make sure to select “Blog” under the drop-down menu for “Posts page” and not “Front page” — unless of course you want your blog to be the landing page of your business website (probably not).

6. Determine the amount of posts you want.

This is a personal preference, really. How many posts do you want to appear when your readers click on Blog? Five? 12? Play around with different amounts and see which option you prefer. Then, save your changes.

7. Write and publish your first post.

And now you’re ready to blog! If you haven’t already done so, you should first set up an editorial calendar for your content so you can produce quality, consistent work for your followers.

Tips for writing your first blog post

Here are a few tips to consider when writing your first post.

Don’t get frazzled.

Now that you’re staring at the blank post page, you might be feeling somewhat panicked about your first blog post. It’s your first post, the one to launch your blog, the one to introduce yourself to your readers. It’s a big deal, right? It is, for sure, but don’t let yourself get too frazzled. Yes, it’s the first post, but it’s not going to be your only post. Your blog is something that is meant to grow and change with your business.

As far as the actual post topic, focus on introducing yourself and your business in your own voice.

 

Your first post is a great way to lay the groundwork for what your blog is going to be about, rather than just getting straight to the regular blog posts. So yes, the post is important, but you’ll have future posts to continue to build on your original foundation.

Stay focused and attract customers.

Clientes en una estación de tren ocupada Customers in a Busy Train Station For a business, the purpose of your blog is to build relationships with your readers in order to grow your business. After that first post, how do you continue to come up with solid content that will keep your blog moving forward? The key is to stick to your primary focus, which should be your products and services. When you keep your posts focused around those points, writing your blog content will be easier for you and more effective at capturing desired readers (and customers).

Promote and share your posts.

First, share your new blogging venture on your social media profiles. It’s a great way to humanize your business, and it gives customers a good starting point for finding new information. Second, consider adding social plugins to your WordPress site.

Make sharing easy, and watch as new customers visit via referrals from their friends.

 

And if you want to move beyond social media marketing into the realm of SEO, there are a bunch of WordPress plugins you can take advantage of (Yoast being a big one). These are intended to help you streamline your WordPress blog and your posts to make your site more search-engine friendly, and they are extremely helpful if you’ve never managed a blog before.

Get ready to blog

Now that you’ve learned how to add a blog to your website, you’re ready to put your words out there. Hopefully, these tips and tricks will have you feeling more confident about your new blogging venture. Happy blogging!

Would you like to create a separate page for blog posts in WordPress? By default, WordPress displays your blog posts on the home page.

However, if you are making a business website or simply want to customize your homepage, then you may want a separate page for your blog section.

In this article, we’ll show you two ways to create a separate page for blog posts in WordPress.

Cómo crear una página separada para publicaciones de blog en WordPress How to Create a Separate Page for Blog Posts in WordPress

Why Display Blog Posts on a Separate Page?

The home page of your WordPress site is the front page of your website and the first page your visitors see. By default, WordPress shows your most recent posts on your home page, and that makes sense if you are running a blog.

But it’s not always ideal on small business websites. You’ll probably want a more engaging home page that tells users about your business, products, and services, lets them know how to contact you, and boosts your sales conversion.

Now, if you also want to run a blog on your website, then you will need to provide another page where visitors can go to read your posts.

In this article, we show you two ways to create a separate page to display your blog posts in WordPress. The second method is the simplest and offers the most customization.

  • Method 1: Creating a Separate Page for Blog Posts in WordPress
  • Method 2: Creating a Customized Page for Blog Posts with a Drag & Drop Builder

Method 1: Creating Separate Page for Blog Posts in WordPress

You can create a separate page for blog posts using WordPress alone, without needing a plugin.

However, this method takes a little more work than Method 2, and will not allow you to easily customize the blog page once it is created.

Creating a Separate Home Page and Blog Page

First, you will need to create two pages in WordPress to use as your home page and blog page. You don’t need to add any content to those pages, and you can name them anything you like. For instance, some business websites use ‘News’ for their blog page.

Crear una nueva página de inicio y página de blog Create a New Home Page and Blog Page

Once you have created those pages, you can head over to the Settings » Reading page in the WordPress admin area.

Under the section labeled ‘Your homepage displays’, you need to click on the button for ‘A static page’. After that, you can select the Home and Blog pages you created earlier. You should then scroll down and click the ‘Save Changes’ button.

Seleccione su página de inicio y página de blog Select Your Home Page and Blog Page

Now when you navigate to Pages » All Pages you’ll see that the Home page is labeled ‘Front Page’ and the Blog page is labeled ‘Posts Page’.

Go ahead and click on the View link under the Blog page to preview it.

La página de inicio ahora está etiquetada como 'Página principal' y la página del blog está etiquetada como 'Página de publicaciones' The Home Page Is Now Labeled ‘Front Page’ and the Blog Page Is Labeled ‘Posts Page’

The appearance of these pages depends on your WordPress theme, and you may wish to configure your theme settings.

For example, if your theme has a navigation menu, then you will notice that WordPress has automatically added the new Blog and Home pages. If not, then refer to our beginner’s guide on how to add a navigation menu in WordPress.

Customizing Your Home Page

So far your new home page is blank. Now it’s time to add information about your business, products, and services, and let your visitors know how they can contact you.

You can learn how to do that in our guide on how to create a custom home page in WordPress. In Method 1, we show you how to use the block editor to add cover images, columns, tables, text and media, galleries, and more.

You’ll also find lots of creative customization ideas in our guide on how to edit a WordPress home page easily and effectively.

Customizing Your Blog Page

If you’re happy with the way your blog page looks, then your job is finished. But if you’d like to customize the appearance of your blog index, then we recommend you use Method 2 instead.

That’s because you can’t currently customize the blog page without using code or a plugin.

Method 2: Creating a Customized Page for Blog Posts with a Drag & Drop Builder

A theme builder plugin allows you to easily create a custom WordPress theme without any code. That includes the ability to create and customize a separate page for blog posts.

Installing the SeedProd Theme Builder

First, you need to install and activate the SeedProd plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

SeedProd is the best drag and drop WordPress page builder for businesses, bloggers, and website owners. The Pro and Elite plans now include a complete theme designer that allows you to easily customize your blog page and much more.

Upon activation, go to the SeedProd » Settings page to enter your plugin license key. You can find this information under your account on the SeedProd website.

Ingrese su clave de licencia de SeedProd Enter your SeedProd license key

After that, it’s time to create a custom WordPress theme. This is much simpler than it sounds.

Creating a Custom WordPress Theme

First, you need to head over to the SeedProd » Theme Builder page. Here, you’ll use one of SeedProd’s ready-made themes as a starting point. This will replace your existing WordPress theme with a new, custom design.

You can do that by clicking the ‘Themes’ button.

Crea tu tema personalizado Create your custom theme

You will be shown a list of professionally designed themes that are designed for different types of websites. For example, there are templates called ‘Modern Business’, ‘Marketing Agency’, and ‘Mortgage Broker Theme’.

Have a look through the options and select one that best matches your needs by clicking the checkmark icon.

Select a theme that matches your needs Select a theme that suits your needs

Once you have chosen a theme, SeedProd will generate all the theme templates, including one for your blog index and one for your home page.

These are not just empty pages, but come set up with attractive layouts and placeholder content that’s easy to customize.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to customize the home page and blog index templates.

You might also like to customize the other templates. To learn how to do that, see our guide on how to easily create a custom WordPress theme.

Customizing Your Home Page

Once you have generated your theme templates, you can edit them using the SeedProd theme builder. We’ll start with the Homepage template.

Simply click the ‘Edit Design’ link to get started.

Edit the layout of the home page template Change home page template design

This will launch the template file in SeedProd theme builder. This simple drag and drop builder will show a live preview of your page to the right and a toolbar on the left.

Home page customization Personalize your homepage

You can customize any block by clicking on it, drag blocks up and down with your mouse, and add new blocks to the page.

We’ve written a complete guide on how to create a custom home page in WordPress. Simply scroll down to Method 2 to learn how to customize your home page using SeedProd.

Customizing Your Blog Page

The SeedProd theme builder also provides plenty of ways to customize your blog index page. Get started by clicking the ‘Edit Design’ link under the page.

Edit your blog page layout Change the design of your blog page

You will see the same preview pane on the right and toolbar on the left. You can customize the blog page the same way as you did with the home page.

For example, when you click on the headline you will be able to see all of its settings. You can edit the text, change the alignment and font size, and more.

Edit title Edit title

Once you’ve finished, you’ll need to click on the ‘Blocks’ icon to return to the toolbar.

The SeedProd theme builder offers additional Template Parts blocks such as a Posts block which displays a list of your blog posts.

The Posts block has already been added to the blog index template for you, and in this template it’s displaying your posts in two columns. We can change this to a single column.

Simply click on the Posts block and then change the ‘Columns’ setting to 1.

Change the number of columns displayed in the post block Change the number of columns displayed in the Posts block

The layout will immediately change to a single column.

As you scroll down the post block settings, you’ll find toggles that let you choose whether or not to display the post image and title. You can also choose which header tag to use for the post title.

There are also options to display different post metadata. You can toggle the modified date, author, post date and time, and comment count.

Configuring SeedProd Post Blocking SeedProd Post Block Parameters

Here are a few more ways you can customize your blog’s table of contents:

  • You can filter the index by post type, category, tag, or author.
  • The sort order of posts can be changed.
  • You can choose how many posts are displayed on a page.
  • You can toggle the post excerpt and customize its length.

Once you have finished customizing your blog page, be sure to click the ‘Save’ button at the top of the screen. You can then return to the list of templates by clicking the ‘X’ icon.

Empowerment of the SeedProd theme

Once you’ve finished customizing the theme templates, you’ll need to publish your new custom theme. Simply change the ‘Enable SeedProd Theme’ setting to the ‘YES’ position.

Enable SeedProd Theme Activate the SeedProd theme

Immediately checks a notification of what is needed for WordPress homepage and blog setup. When clicking on the ‘Aceptar’ button, this configuration will change for usted.

You can now visit your website to see your new home page and blog page. This is what the blog index page looks like on our demo site.
