Stand Alone Pages: New Blogger Feature!

I was surprised when I logged in several seconds ago and saw this new sub-tab on the Posting tab. It's the Stand Alone Pages! Blogger allows us to create up to 10 Pages now! Before, what we used to do is to make a new post and link it to our navigation menu or our sidebars. But now it's an embedded feature on Blogger! Woot! According to Blogger:
Blogger pages let you to publish static information on stand-alone pages linked from your blog. For example, you can use pages to create an About This Blog page that discusses the evolution of your blog, or a Contact Me page that provides directions, a phone number, and a map to your location.
I immediately made three pages of my own, namely the Disclosure Policy Page, the Badge Exchange Page and the Contact Me Page. I also have an About Me Page, but it has nothing in it yet. LOL. How do you create a page? Simple! It's exactly the same as how you write a blog post! More Blogger explanations:
Once your page is published, you can link to it from the new Pages widget. The Pages widget lets you add links to your pages as tabs at the top of your blog, or as links in your blog's sidebar. (Note: existing third party templates may not support pages as tabs, but pages can still be added as links in your blog's sidebar). In the Pages widget, you can decide which pages will have links, and in what order they will appear. You can also choose whether or not you want links automatically created for pages when you create them by checking or unchecking the box to the left of Add New Pages by Default.

Now if only there was a way to create an Archive Page. Hmmm.. Must Google for this ;)
