Thanks for the question and the info. I’ve been thinking about a static page for a future blog and kind of wondered how it worked. Am I right to assume that having blog posts on a “back” page won’t affect the RSS feeds?
I might as well use this space to express my absolute love for wordpress.com. I’ve tried practically every blogging platform in the universe, and this one is so far ahead of the competition, there’s really no comparison. I never dreamed that anything for free could be so good.
