Between a Post and a Page

Today I’ve posted a page—the promised 25 things about myself.  Why a page?  It seemed more fitting, I suppose.

What’s the difference between a page and a post, you ask?  <LOL>  The former is timely, listed in chronological order (new to old) while the latter is a stagnant—yup—page.  It can advise of your privacy policy, provide a legal notice, describe you.  Pages don’t have associated times and dates.  They’re . . . there.

Moreover, posts can be organized into categories and tags, and people can subscribe to them.  They’re “postable” in other social media sites, courtesy of plug-ins, and are great to communicate with others through comments.

Both look similar, as you’ve undoubtedly noticed.  Nothing wrong with that.  Use both as you see fit.

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
