Yes, this is an unusual question. But is there a way to change a page to a post?
I'd like to write a Christmas letter as a page, using a unique page template. Then I'll email all my relatives and give them the link to that page. After a month or so, I'll turn it back into a post (so it is in the archives and in search results).
Any ideas? My searching found a couple other folks asking this question, but no results (like this).
If I can't do this, then I'll just write that Christmas card outside of WP or something, since I don't want to forever have to change
wp_list_pages in every theme I use to exclude this page.
