Pages!! Confused

  1. So this may sould like a really obvious question but I have two blogs at the moment want want to merge the two. Ideally I want three paged... A home page and then two seperate topical ones. I have'nt used pages before... When you post how can you post to a specific page rather than the usual home page? If it doesn't work like that then how do you get your post onto the page in the first place... will the appear like the normal posts? If not is there anyway to do this?

    I want the seperate pages to run like the home page, seperate blog posts?
    Also is there an easy way to transfer a post on one page to another?

    Im sooo stuck... Help =) thanks

    The blog I need help with is smudgelove.wordpress.com.

    export blog content
    import blog content
    export/import links
    copy and paste text widget content as it's not exportable.

    You cannot post to Pages. Pages are static and sit outside the blog structure. With WordPress, you use Categories to organize posts into subjects and then you can add those Categories to your navigation using a custom menu.

    Staff have provided help for those who want to structure their blog like a website. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or custom links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus
