My blog template offers a choice whether to show a static page as your front page, or a view with my latest posts. I'm confused by what they mean. From what I read, the static page is just a fixed page I can choose (which I just set up yesterday, my 'about' page) that people will see first when they open my blog forcing them to click on a post within the site.  The view that has my latest post which I had until yesterday showed my latest writing not requiring any clicking on links within my blog. Can someone tell me please if I have the right idea? And if one view is preferable to the other? I would like the view which generates the most readers for my posts :)

Thanks!
Megan

I don't think there's a right or wrong way for a front page, as long as it is easy for your readers to navigate. Dynamic/static pages are the trending home page  (pages with some static information, but also short excerpts of  recent or popular posts).

I think most people have their blog posts on the home page, which means recent post view. For me when I come to someone's blog on a link and like what I read I then go to their home page to read what else they wrote or what they are talking about more recently. Just my thoughts : )

Thank you for your feedback :) For now I have it with my most recent posts on my home page...I'm so new to this I'm sure I'll evolve as my blog does. I'm learning so much already!

If you are blogger it's better to have recent posts on homepage, your readers wants to see fresh content on the blog.
