I have a SharePoint Online Site Collection (Using Classic Team Experience) and for each of the company's functional areas we want to implement a blog. Is the best way to do this to create a blog subsite for each Functional Area, or to have the users create pages in their functional area's subsite?


It's preferred to create a blog subsite for each functional area for the following reasons:

  • More Organized.
  • "Out of the Box" Blog functionalities like
    • Manage comments.
    • Manage categories.
    • Manage posts.
    • Manage posts layout.
  • Archiving feature for old blogs.
  • Easy to manage permission.

Creating pages in the same functional area subsites will add these pages by default in Site Pages library that not suitable for blogs purpose. meanwhile, you will lose the main blog functionalities and the above-mentioned features.
