I don’t understand how to add the post I’ve just written to the right title on the menu. I wrote a post and it appears under recent posts but when I click Travelogue on the menu there is nothing there. I can’t see anywhere how to put the posts I write in the relevant area…it’s driving me nuts!!

The blog I need help with is randombitsofstuff.wordpress.com.
Pages bloggers create are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page. The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top.
Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page. We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can create a custom menu and add the dynamic Categories pages, which are automatically created by the software when we publish posts, into the custom menu.
