    Thanks for the nice tip. I might want to hide my day to day journaling post from my front page since I am mostly just documenting my experiences with building a successful blog, but it is not my main focus.

    Mixing my journaling post in with my regular articles have been confusing for some of my readers, so it might be useful to hide my journal post from front page.

    This is the easy way to hide, but we can do this by using a category method…by placing a simple code in the index file..

    Yes!! You can’t hide announcements from your subscribers. You can just blog the visibility of the post with general audience.
