The Pages feature allows you to add static web pages in addition to your blog, and you can create a Landing Page that visitors will see first when they arrive at your site. The Pages feature is ideal if you want to create a site which is more like a website than a traditional blog.
First, you can create a Page by selecting New Page from the Compose drop-down menu or going to Posts > Pages > New Page. A page is created similar to a post using the Rich Text editor.
After publishing the Page, you can designate the Page as the Front Page of your site. Go to Settings > Posts, select Display a "page" as the front page, choose a page from the drop-down menu, and click Save Changes.
See the article on creating a landing page for more information.
Instead of displaying on the Front Page, the recent posts will be available by adding
blog_index.html to the end of your blog's address. i.e.
You can highlight the link to the recent posts by adding a link to the blog index to the Navigation Bar. At Design > Content, click the pencil icon next to the Navigation Bar module, add the blog index link, click OK, and click Save Changes.
The Navigation Bar can also be used to add other pages to your site. You can create pages with information about your site, contact information, and much more. See the article on adding pages to the Navigation Bar for more information.
