Lately there seem to be an increasing number of new bloggers who want instructions that enable them to create a static front page on their blogs. They want to have a static front page for aesthetic reasons ie. to make their blog look less like a blog and more like a website.
Some types of blogs such as professional, business, photography and wedding album blogs, etc. may be enhanced by the appearance of a static front page. But I wonder what impacts making the static front page choice may have on the blogs of every day bloggers, who are trying to achieve a good flow of targeted readers and PageRank.
