    I really did look around to try to find the answer….I created a “home” PAGE and then created a POST. I cannot seem to find the post anywhere when I preview the blog. There is not way to get to the POST. It’s nowhere to be found except in my dashboard.

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

    The post is located here:

    However, you need to log into your dashboard and go to Settings–> Reading and set your “posts” page to be something other than the page you have chosen for your site’s front page. Once you set a posts page, all of your posts will appear there.

    Thank you for your help. I was able to go to settings and reading. Unfortunately I still can’t find my post. I changed the setting to Front Page displays static and chose “about this blog”. Then on the next line it says “posts page” and when I go to select it doesn’t give me any options other than “about this blog” so i just left it at “select”.
    My main goal is to have the front page be an about this blog page and then allow the reader to read the blog posts after that.
    Sorry I am so confused!

    You will need to create a new page before you are able to set your “posts” page.

    I would create one called “blog” for example (you can always change it later). Then return to Settings–> Reading and set “blog” as your posts page.

    Well, as with the other suggestion, this one also makes perfect sense. I did what you said and created a “blog” under posts. Makes sense. I saved the changes.
    I don’t know what I am doing wrong and I don’t know what this template is supposed to look like, but when I go to my blog, all I see is what I’ve set as the static page. There is no tab or arrow pointing to where I want my posts page to be.
    Maybe this particular template doesn’t work other than posting things in order. I am frustrated with myself on this one.

    You will probably want to set up a navigational menu using these instructions:

    Most themes default to a design where the front page displays blog posts. If you choose to use a static front page (as you are doing) you will need to do a little work to make sure people can find your posts page.
