Hallo Bryan

One way to differentiate between a page and a blog post: Check the URL. A blog post contains the date in the URL, like this:

http://MY.CONFLUENCE.COM/display/SPACEKEY/2012/04/20/PAGE+NAME

But a page has just the page name:

http://MY.CONFLUENCE.COM/display/SPACEKEY/PAGE+NAME

I hope this answers the question. :)

Cheers, Sarah

There are programmatic ways to tell whether content is a blog or a page as well. I think what you want is the ContentEntityObject's getTypeEnum() method. I haven't tested this yet, but it would look like this:

$content.getTypeEnum()

That should return one of the ContentTypeEnum's constants which includes BLOG, COMMENT, PAGE, etc...
