What I would really like to do, and I'm not sure if this is possible, is have a front page where my most recent article posts go, but also have a link to another page where I can post my daily blog journal posts to, with the same ability to separate comments per post, so that people can make comments on each day. Right now I'm using a static page for my journal and then just updating it everyday, but people can't post comments to individual day's posts, just to the page in general.
I'm using the second page as a blog journal and the first page as a kind of news and articles section. I'm totally new to WordPress. Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
