Yo, blogger users

Can someone tell me in simple terms how to create a new page to my blog? I want to separate my grace/365 days posts onto their own page with a clicky thing in the sidebar that would just show the photo du jour. At least I think I want to do that. I won't know until I actually try it out. And I can't try because I can't figure it the frick out.

So if you know, please tell me. And say it like you're talking to a third grader, if you will.

Please and thank you.

I think this goes back to that whole Wordpress vs. Blogger thing. You can have static pages and such with wordpress, but the only way you can do it on blogger is by pre-dating your pages. Or you can just have a whole second blogger blog linked to this one.

See, that's why I asked. If there is not a big red button that says CLICK HERE TO MAKE NEW PAGE, then I can't do it. But the idea of a connected separate blog, that is simple. Thanks, Cat.

It's kind of a bummer that I didn't find wordpress before blogger because some stuff about blogger bugs the crap out of me. But then again, I HATE the way wordpress does archives. If you want to read someone's archives in chronological order (like oldest to newest) you have to page back and back and back or guess how far back to go (I type the page # in manually in the URL until I find the beginning of th emonth) and then go from there.

If I could just merge wordpress and blogger together, that would be fabulous. Typepad isn't free, so they get the finger.

I used Wordpress for a little while just for that reason, the additional pages - but you can't post separate posts to the extra pages, it's all one big friggin' page and you keep adding to it. At least, that's all I could work out with it.

I finally created a separate blog for my photos and put a clicky thing on the sidebar.

And news flash. Third graders know waaayyy more about this stuff than we do.

You are asking the wrong reader right here. I was lucky to figure out how to do the easy stuff. But fortunately most of the people in my "real life" think it's a big deal having a blog; like magic, so I will read with interest the good advice you get to maybe become more magical.
