A post in WordPress is an individual piece of content that appears on a blog. While some people incorrectly refer to the posts themselves as “blogs,” they are actually component parts of a blog. The correct term is “blog post,” or simply “post.”
Blog posts are also different from articles, which are typically updated less frequently. Articles have a more formal tone and are usually reviewed by the publication’s editor. Blog posts are less formal, and may not go through a review process.
People generally create a post in WordPress to add up a new article or story which they want to share with the mass of people. To keep all the posts organized in the blog section, one can easily group them into categories.
Generally, the posts are displayed in the reverse chronological order in the blog section so that all the all the new content shows up at the top of the page. WordPress also facilitates RSS (Rich Site Summary) feed for your posts with which they will get notified whenever the site administrator will upload any new post. One can easily customize the format of the posts by choosing a specific theme. The site administrator can also make the posts sticky, which implies that posts will always display at the top of the pages.
