An extra page?

Q:I have my main page for my blog which im going to use for most things, but I want an extra page for a different topic, am i able to do this?
I want to be able to post on the extra page without it having to appear on the main page?
blogger has extra pages but these are static, what does this mean? please help

A: On Blogger, it is mainly about posts, not pages. Normally you make a new post. It ends up on top of your other posts in reversed chronological order. The number of posts you can make, is almost unlimited. However if you use static pages, you are allowed to have only 10 pages. Each page has only very limited features; no comment box, no labels and it stays static. You normally do not add anything to it.

Unlike other blogging platforms (word press, my space, typepad, livejournal, multiply, facebook, orkut, friendster, hi5), on Blogger, we do not call a blog, a blog. We call it a post. When you wish to make a new blog, you should click on "new post". Other wise you would be creating blog after blog and not a single post. That is terrible. No one will read your blogs arranged that way.

1. Sign on to your blog using your ID and password here:
2. On your dashboard click on "new post"
3. Type inside the post editor (large box) or upload a photo
4. Publish post.

Your blogging area will be filled by your posts as you add more posts (no limit). The side bars are meant for adding gadgets: About me, archives, labels list, link list etc. Continue to add posts to your blog. One blog is usually enough for new bloggers. Please do not create too many blogs today. What you need to do is add more posts!

This term, as used on Blogger, refers to static pages which appear as tabs under the header: Home, About me, recipes, my blog list, etc.  Static pages have only very limited uses on Blogger, (max: 10)

create a static page
On your dashboard, click on edit posts>>edit pages>>new page
A page editor appears. Create a title for your page, create the page, publish page.
You are allowed to have 10 static Pages. They will appear horizontally, as tabs under your header. The first tab will always be [Home]. You may choose the names for the other tabs e.g. About me, contact me, photo galleries, recipes, my other blogs, etc.

Once you understand the above, you can go one step further. Create an entirely new blog for a new topic. All this can be done under the same account. The limit is 100 blogs.

create a blog
On your dashboard, click "create a blog" (top, right hand corner)
