If you want a blog on your site but don't want to display the blog on the front page, you can add one from the WordPress Dashboard. To create the blog for your site, first follow these steps:
The page where you can write a new post to your WordPress blog opens.
The page is saved to your database and published to your WordPress site.
Now, you have a blank page that redirects to http://yourdomain.com/blog. Next, you need to assign the page you just created as your blog page.
The Reading Settings page opens.
The page is set as your blog page, as shown in Figure 2-6.
If you enter 5, for example, the blog page shows the last five posts you made to your blog.
The options you just set are saved, and your blog is now at http://yourdomain.com/blog (where yourdomain.com is the actual domain name of your site).
When you navigate to http://yourdomain.com/blog, a listing of your blog posts appears.
