    I want to add a page where people can see my archive blogs as well as see what other blogs I follow , like a blog roll . Thanks!

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

    Hello!

    As far as the blog roll aspect, you can use the widget Links to create a blogroll. This article specifically shows how to add them.

    From what I can tell, you cannot make a separate archive page on any of the standard WordPress themes, and only the Business package comes with CSS editing/Custom theme options. This article explains it all a little better than I can.

    I hope this answers your question!

    Blogs I Follow Widget https://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/blogs-i-follow-widget/

    The Blogs I Follow Widget is an automated way to add a blogroll of sites that you follow via the WordPress.com Reader. It will list up to 50 blogs, starting with those you’ve most recently followed. (If you’d prefer to specify exactly what blogs display or would like to include non-WordPress.com site in your blogroll, use the Links widget instead.)
