Will creating pages vs blog posts affect site speed?

Hey there, long story short, I have a client who hired a local guy who says he can help with page ranking. This guy has been creating new pages that look like blog posts but aren’t connected to any other page or visible on the site. Can this slow the site down? And are there any reasons you all may know of for him to create pages rather than blog posts for these articles he made?
