Workaround to Simulate "BLOG" Function on Adobe Portfolio website?

I use Adobe Portfolio to host my photography website(s) [easier and cheaper than Squarespace, etc.], but one major LACK is any blogging functionality.

 

My question: do you think I could "simulate" the look and function of a "BLOG" within my website by simply creating a page called BLOG (visible from homepage), and then filling that page with a gallery of other webpages (NON visible from homepage) which would function as the "posts" in the blog?

 

I hope that's clear...

 

Basically, I want to be able to "BLOG" each client's wedding story, or BLOG about projects im working on, etc. but Adobe Port doesn't have a blog function,

 

Anyone here have any workarounds?

there's no significant programic difference between a blog and a regular webpage.  the conceptual difference is that a blog is updated regularly.  ie, if you create a page, or pages, that you update on a regular basis, it's a blog.

 

so, just create a webpage, add text and regularly add more text.  there's your blog.

@adriennecatanesephoto,

Portfolio  -- as its name implies -- is a Portfolio platform, nothing more. You can create new pages and discuss whatever you want. But Blogging requires a backend framework for user comments and posts sorted by keywords, titles, dates, etc...  Portfolio is not equipped for that. And it's unlikely that it ever will be.

 

I don't know many people who blog anymore, it's mostly been replaced by posting on social media (YouTube, Instagram, Facebook & Twitter).  But if you're really keen on having a blog, use free Blogger or WordPress.com in addition to your Portfolio. 

 

Hope that helps.  Good luck!
