    By default, when you create a post it goes on the "blog" page which should be your url.

    This should be the blog page, http://moneyoptions-online.com/ unless you have created a static page following these instructions, http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page

    Have you written and published a post? Nothing will show up if there are no posts.

    No I do not have a static Page, and I have written about 8 posts so far but I want a Page on my website that will have every post I have on it. The homepage only has my recent 3 lik I set It to.

    That tutorial is very old.

    The site you like is done with a static page set to show most recent posts (teasers) and a johnchow.com/blog to show all of the posts. He is using the Thesis theme which is commercially available.

    Since you have a custom theme this might be of some help.

    I guess I'm not understanding. the Page that link sent me to is about creating a static homepage with teasers, but I want to keep the homepage I have, but add a new page named blog that shows every post that I have made

    The example you like has a home (static) page and a blog page. You can keep the home page you have but it will have to be a static page. You can't have 2 blog pages per se.

    You could set up a category page but that would only show certain categories while the blog page shows all. That way you could have multiple blog pages but you would have to change categories when you wanted a recent post replaced with another. I don't think that is the best way. http://codex.wordpress.org/Posts_Categories_Screen

    So your static page will have everything you have now and just show parts of the most recent 3 posts you have made which is very much like a teaser. Part of the post - a teaser so they read it and click on read more, which takes them to the single post page like it does now.
