An aggregating post (AP) is simply a post that contains a list of links to other posts or webpages. It is like an index or table of contents.
The purpose of an AP is to collect links to similar posts to make it easier for you (and others) to locate and access posts with one, two or three mouse clicks.
Let's say you create fifty (50) posts in your personal blog. You could click on "Your Blog" and see the full content of all of the posts, or you could add your initials to the "Keywords" section of each of your posts and then click on one hyperlink instance of your initials to see the title of all of your posts. But neither method organizes your posts.
Of course, you can add keyword tags to take you to posts as long as that exact keyword is used more than once.
As I mentioned in this post (that describes how you can develop the very important area in the upper right sidebar called your "Brief Description" (BD) of your blog), you can place a link there (in your BD) to one of your key APs and that post can organize your fifty posts. (See this post about the four (4) most important posts in your personal blog that I mention next.)
Your "My LifeWork Portal" could be that key AP. In it you could have links to your top three (3) APs - "My LifeWork Plans", "My LifeWork ePortfolios", and ""My LifeWork Profiles", as well as APs for all your other posts that do not logically belong in these three. Each of these three 1st level APs could have subordinate APs. For example, click on this example of a "My LifeWork Plans" AP. Note how it links to three other subordinate - but related - APs.
Thus, if you wanted to find the post you created to collect information about your resume, you could do a search for the tag "resumes" or you could click your mouse four (4) times down this chain of APs starting in your Brief Description area (BD) -> My LifeWork Portal -> My LifeWork Plans -> My Job Search Plan -> My Resumes.
Note that three (3) mouse clicks through APs that each have an average of 5 links gives you access to 125 posts.
