Uses for a Blog Post

Blog posts are virtually identical to articles with one major exception: blog posts are primarily organized by their parent blog. The main consideration in determining if something will be a blog or a series of articles should be what will make it easiest to manage. Given the variety of ways you can organize and query content in templates, blogs may or may not be an intuitive option.

A few considerations to keep in mind when developing new blogs:

  • If the blog content will be tagged, authored, or organized by folders you should build that into the blog template(s)
  • Custom fields are your friends. Go wild with them, but keep usability for your content creators and editors in mind. Also remember that custom fields only work if your blog posts have pages that use the template the custom fields are defined on.
