That is because pages are only visible when you add content to them.
And yes, the side pan might be the best way to access those yet
inexistent pages. But also check the Insert/date and time which allows
for adding a link to the journal page of the selected date even if the
page does not exist yet.

As far as I know, you cannot have more than a journal in the same
notebook. You can have one notebook per project or you can have a page
serving as a journal for a project that links back to the journal
namespace or you can link journal entries to the project. I can't
remember any better way of doing that at this moment.
