While we don't offer an official blogging tool, there are a few different ways to create a blog structure using Podia!
This is great if you'd like to take advantage of our all-in-one platform and keep everything in just one place! 🤩
1) Creating a Previewable Course
Creating a fully previewable course is the first option that is available in creating a public blog. To accomplish this, you could create a free course where all of the lessons are previewable like Daniele has on his site here: https://store.swissinnovation.academy/blog
2) Utilizing Custom Pages
On the custom landing page for your blog, you can add an image with text section with a cover image and description or preview of each post. For each of those sections, you'll be able to add a custom button that will link out to your individual blog posts. Those will all be built on their own custom page like Open Studio created here: https://www.openstudiojazz.com/blog
3) Using the Community Feature
Another way to set up a blog would be by creating public posts in your community like Mark has on his site: https://www.bigmountainstudio.com/community/public
Note: the page slug cannot be changed at the moment
If you want to collect emails before anyone can view your blog, you could instead change the topic's access to be private which would mark the contents of that topic to only accessible within designated free community plans. You could then ask visitors to subscribe to any of those plans first in order to access those private posts!
