I am new to wordpress and am using the free version. I have a main blog, though not much to it. I have done some research on what I would like to do, but I am unsure if it can be done with a free page. Ideally I want to have a 2nd page that is a 'running history' of events. I do not wants these 'history' items to appear in my main blog page. I want 'readers' to be able to click a link at the top that takes them to this history of events, and have the 'events' listed in reverse chronological order.
It looks like it is possible by editing a code to hide a specific category of posts from the main blog page, and creating a link in the top menu to that specific category. Then whenever I post about this type of event I can assign it to the specific category.
My question is this: In the most simplistic language, can someone tell me if a) this can be done in a free wordpress account - and b) if so how do I do it?
I have never done code before, this is my first blog, and I am fairly certain I have no clue what I am doing....just that I know what I wish it was :)
The blog I need help with is overtheworldandback.wordpress.com.
