How to create a static home page in blogger

Do you want step by step guide to create a static home page in blogger ? Well if you want then read this post carefully. 

Before that i want to give a little background knowledge about websites. Generally there are about three types of websites in this world and they are static , dynamic and application.

Static websites are those which organize their content in such a way that it never up gets updated or say its looks , appearance or written texts are not updated.

For example 

Websites of college and universities which are written  once and their students or those students who wants to apply reads same thing for year and year. Their website put articles like how to apply , fee structure , scholarships , hostel etc. These articles never get old with every new year it gets new readers.

Similarly websites of companies , organization , clubs etc comes under static sites

Now lets come to dynamic websites , All those websites which keep on changing or updating their web content are dynamic websites. These websites generally includes blogs and content marketing sites like website you are reading right now.

And the last one Application sites include web apps like facebook , google ,  youtube , blogger etc.

Why should we use static site ?

Static sites are very well organized and very clean , they are more controllable than dynamic which is controlled by scripts and codes.

If  you want to have full control over looks and appearance and want to make your website easy to navigate then you can go with static home page .

Few tips for static sites

Creating a static home page is cool but once you redirected to static page your blog won't show any post snippets yeah other widgets like sidebar , recent post will work but main area will be blank.

So you need to fill it with something right these are my suggestions.
  • Add a Navigation menu so that visitors can navigate easily.
  • In blank main area you can use Cards images to create link to page with posts link. For this use high quality designs you can use canva its free.
  • You can put your main ( most valuable ) posts link directly so that visitors will directly read those .


Finally , creating a static page is not very hard in blogger and also there are very less chances of error. I have read few other articles on this topic and found that they also teach to create pages tabs and also say to uncheck home link. But there is no meaning in that because even if visitors clicked that they will again be redirected and will see same static page.

Okay this much for today.
