I have a problem with making a homepage for my posts. I tried out the static page feature. This resulted in a static "About" page, a blog posts menu item (I learned it's not technically a "page") I titled "Blog", and two category pages I chose to make. When I go onto my blog, I get directed to the "About" page first and have to click to the "Blog" to see my posts. Even when I switched the placement of About and Blog in the menu, About still behaves as a home that you see first when visiting my blog. I removed the static feature and just had an About page, but that removed the posts menu link I called Blog.
I want a menu link for Blog because it reads better to have that than clicking on my blog title, but I want my blog posts to be the first thing a reader sees when they visit me online. I don't like all-about-me with my picture to be the first thing someone sees. I see other blogs are set up this way. How did they do it?
I use the 2012 theme.
The blog I need help with is selfdomesticationproject.wordpress.com.
