Making my blog more into a website design?

  1. Hello everyone,
    I'd like my blog to have more of a website feel to it, with different pages for different posts etc.
    Could you please let me know if you can do any of these things on WordPress.com (I'm not sure what can and can't be done)
    * Have certain posts post to certain pages
    * Hide main post page so you can only view posts by going on different pages

    I've got as far as adding new pages, but don't know if anything can be done from here?
    Thanks (feel free to look at my blog to see what I mean)

    The blog I need help with is himynameisami.wordpress.com.

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or custom links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus

    Also note that if you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page for your site, and also create a “blog” page for your posts to display on, but that’s optional.
