Blogging 101

Pages vs. Posts


If you’re new to WordPress you may be wondering what’s the big deal behind Pages and Posts. At first glance they appear to be one and the same: if you were to create either a new page or a new post you’d be presented with nearly identical interfaces and in many cases the public appearance of pages and posts will look the same.

Don’t let this fool you. There’s a very fundamental difference between the two and that difference is what makes CMSs, like WordPress, great platforms for integrating blogs with traditional websites.


Think about the kind of pages that make up a typical website. Most often you’ll see pages like “Home”, “About Us”, “Services”, “Contact Us”, etc. Within WordPress these are often treated as Pages; documents that have no particular regard for the time they were posted.

For example, when you visit the “About Us” page of your favorite company’s website you don’t expect the content to be very different from what was available there a week ago.

So as you may or may not know, I co-host a Podcast with good friend Sarah Wilke, mostly focusing on slice-of-life topics. It’s also a great chance to drink in my radiant wit.

The Life’s Honest Tea podcast on Spotify

You can find Life’s Honest Tea on Soundcloud or Spotify as of this writing, although I’m working on getting it submitted to Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Pocket Casts, etc. This has been a lot of fun so far and has turned me on to the possibility of doing my own separate podcast, though I don’t know about what just yet.

One idea is a podcast I’m calling ‘Extended Universes’ where I deep dive into pop culture franchises that have Extended Universes, official or unofficial. This might mean that I spend a couple months detailing the history of the Star Wars extended universe, including the books, fan films, games and more. Or I might dive into the largely unknown (to the mass audience) Stephen King Universe, which ties books like Salem’s Lot directly into the Stand, among many others. I could also try my hand at the Marvel Cinematic Universe…although I think a series about the Comics would be warranted if I could find a guest willing to do the legwork.

The second idea is for a podcast focusing on being a creative individual, and what that means in today’s largely disconnected world. Getting work, to getting paid, to getting ‘good’. This one sounds interesting and would be a lot less work on the research end, but the audience isn’t quite as niche.

Whatever I decide to do, I’ve got the bug, and although the podcast market is highly saturated, I think it could be a fun experiment, at least!

Another fun update, the Sideways Novella is now available on Amazon! You can also find everywhere else Sideways is available at my Universal Book Link (UBL), Here. and again, at my Gumroad Store (link in menu).

Hopefully more exciting things are coming soon!

Listen to Life’s Honest Tea, me and Sarah Wilke’s Podcast!

New Stuff!

During my quiet time on this site, I’ve got some new stuff available! First of all, I’ve published a short Novella, Sideways, and it’s now available just about anywhere you like to read books, including on my own Store (but also on Amazon, Apple Books, Google Play and Books, Barnes and Noble, etc etc.)


Sideways can be read on the Apple Store

An Audiobook edition is in production now (thankfully not voiced by me but a very talented friend) and will be available just about anywhere you can get audiobooks (again including Audible, Apple, Google Play, Chirp, etc.) I’ll update here when that is available.

Next, there is a graphic novel version of the same story that is available now on Amazon, as well as on my Store again. Hopefully soon it will be available on Drive-Thru comics as well. If you grab the book from my store, you can also get a bundled, special edition that you can’t get anywhere else!

Sideways the Graphic Novel is available on Amazon

Last but not least, you can get a shiny copy of Zero Lux Chapter 1 on Amazon as well, but of course you can also visit my Store for that last bit too. Plus there’s chapters 1-8 on the store (8, at the time of this writing, is currently in progress on Webtoons, so if you bought it now, you’d have it before anyone else.)

See you guys in a bit, more fun stuff to come!

I know no one is reading this site yet lol, which is cool, I haven’t really pushed it around too much. But I’m going to be testing out a bit of reformatting, maybe make this look more like a ‘typcial’ webcomics site. Probably in the next few weeks, slowly lol. So I won’t be updating the comic here, probably until then. You can still read the updating comic on Webtoons or Tapastic, or check me out on Instagrams

Otherwise, you can hit me up on socials, like ma facebook page. Peace, for now.
