    I'd like to have a main Blog page show as the following:

    My Latest Cat 1 Posts                My Latest Cat 2 Posts

    [CATEGORY 1_latestPost1]   |   [CATEGORY 2_latestPost1]

    [CATEGORY 1_latestPost2]   |   [CATEGORY 2_latestPost2]

    [CATEGORY 1_latestPost3]   |   [CATEGORY 2_latestPost3]

    [CATEGORY 1_latestPost4]   |   [CATEGORY 2_latestPost4]

    [CATEGORY 1_latestPost5]   |   [CATEGORY 2_latestPost5]

    Is this possible via Shortcode, Custom Shortcode, or is there are any way I can modify the Blog template without too much hassle?

    Thanks so much for the response.

    Hi Joel,

    There is no default option, but you maybe able to add via plugin into two columns. I think there is a category plugin which pulls posts from a specific category. 

    I need to look at adding something like this for future updates.

    Andy,

    Thanks for the reply.  I tried the plugin route, but all of the custom shortcodes and advantages of your post customization didn't work when used together.

    I've gone ahead and modified blog.php to accomplish what I needed. Wasn't easy, but doable.

    Thanks,

    Joel

    Hi Joel,

    I'm glad you got it sorted – I've started working on this for a future update, a shortcode system/widget to pull out recent posts with a few extra controls.
