Would a blog perhaps be the best way to go about this?

Also, if I use the blog tool, there is no way to backdate articles, correct? I'd have to have them dated as the current date. (I know I can always type the original date in the post itself.)

Looks like I can backdate articles, which is awesome. I've been playing around with the blog tools and frankly am on total overload after learning website builder over the past few days. 
So, am I correct in that the "post page" that shows up in my pages manager as a sub page to the "blog" page is there as a template and is not to be edited?

or if I do edit it, it will simply affect the way all of my published blog posts look.

I'm just talking to myself out loud here to help out anyone else who needs blog assistance as I figure things out.

You are absolutely correct in that statement. It is a template all of your Blog posts will follow, so be careful with any edits.

"post author" is inputting my email address automatically instead of my name. Is there a way to change that in the post page template so it defaults to my first and last name? I'm editing it in afterward for now.

^^^^^^^^^^This one I still can not fix with my own brain.

As far as I know, it will default to the email since that is the user name on your account. I will look into it though.

Yes, I'd rather not have my email out there like that. I think first and last name is also better for searching purposes and google stats.

Also, some help with tags

tags work within the blog itself, correct? So if I tag something as "channeling" (which is what I do) every article tagged channeling will show up when the tag is clicked, yes?

Correct, this would be for organizing blog posts, so all blogs with the same tag can be searched for and grouped together

Hey Sorry Nora. I'm here. Sorry I've been getting through a lot of questions that were asked this weekend and just saw your questions here.

Thank you, Elizabeth. I assumed that was the case. Monday morning must be crazy for you all. Maybe homestead would add support on the weekends since that's a great time for us creative types to get some solid work done. (I know it's been said before, just adding to the chorus).
