Hi Alayna,

You are confused about dynamic and static. A dynamic website is one typically which is auto generated or rather, created by the users, a newsfeed, database, etc.... thus the URLs are created on the fly (no webmaster) and normally stored in some sort of MySQL database. Having a blog has nothing to do with a static or dynamic creation of your pages. You can have a blog on both kind of websites.... you can have a forum attached to a static website... the forum pages will be created when users make new threads etc...

The pages you create on your blog and articles will be static (unless you use a newsfeed such as RSS) and for the most part your whole site will be.... install a forum as well and that part will be dynamic.
