    Should a blog have a static homepage?

    Which do you think is better, having a static homepage as the landing point on your blog or having your post page as the landing point? What are the pros and cons of each?

    I think having a static page in a blog is a disadvantage in SEO point of view.

    I believe having a static homepage would help, from what I can recall, search engines rated dynamic and static websites differently. With a static page you will have reliable content that is expected to be their, this is likely to help with page ranks etc as well.

    But then again I am not an expert..

    If your blog has a good description right at the top, and it is clear to new visitors to the blog what your blog is all about, then a static homepage is not necessary. However, if you would like to make a more attractive homepage with images and other eye-catching large text or information to draw your visitor in to explore your blog more, there's nothing wrong with that either - if doing that, though, just make sure that you also provide easy-to-see links to your categories, archives or recent articles, so that a visitor (after being impressed with the landing page) doesn't struggle to easily explore the rest of your blog.
