Separate Pages for Different Subjects
Use categories and then you can use a custom menu to show those category names in the top navigation.

Add categories to your posts:
Then create a Custom Menu to include those categories in the navigation bar

help help soooossss, newbies on the radar. I am using the theme ‘Inuit Types’. It only has the ‘About’ tab and I would like to all 5 more tabs besides it and link them to other pages. I understand the ‘pages + linking’ part, but how do I create new navigation tabs?

The answer has already been provuded above.

There is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages.
We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. Although there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance we have done so by creating a custom menu. In that custom menu you will be displaying Categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation to achieve what you want.
These are the how-to instructions:
1. You create a custom menu. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
2. You add the Categories you want to display and arrange them in the order you want.
3. Then you add and drop and drag the sub-categories below the appropriate Categories, and when you have everything arranged in the menu that you want you save the menu.
4. Go to the “theme location” module at upper left on the menu page. Select your custom menu name from the pull-down labeled “primary location.” Click the save button in that module.
Thank you for the prompt replay. I managed to sort it out.
Very clear and elaborate. I do need to master the ‘categories’ and the running page functions. I will continue to fiddle about with it. Progressing slowly but surely. Thank you very much
You’re welcome. :)
