    You are correct you have both offered this advice.

    I have tried it but it is not working..

    Maybe i am doing something wrong, do i add a post or a page? i have tried both but they are not working..

    when i add a post, the WordPress Editor automatically adds either a slug for or the date to the end of the URL, which means that the URL http://www.calendarforhope.wordpress.com remains unused. and shows up as page not foud.

    i know i am doing something wrong, but there has to be something to allow me to edit that page..

    Just to prove that i am a full fledged idiot. when i went into the trash section for PAGES - not posts as i had been doing, i realized that i had deleted the ABOUT page..

    Thanks for the help and patience..

  6. You add a Post, not a Page. Page-based websites are near-invisible to search engines and that's not what you want.

    I see you set the blog to open on the About page and deleted it. You'll be better off with a site that opens on the blog posts page, just in terms of visibility and interest.

  7. If you set the blog posts page as the landing page, every single post shows up on that page. You don't see the effect till you have about five posts, but trust us.
