  1. What if I don’t want a real blog – do I still need a blog page? If yes, how can I keep it suppressed or use it as a different type of page.

    1. Hi, it is possible to keep the Blog page unselected at Settings > Reading and add your custom page with a custom widget to list the Posts. We have a new powerful plugin that adds awesome blocks to Gutenberg editor – Getwid. It offers Custom Post Type block that can be used to list the Posts in any way you want.
