    How can I change the URL for the blog main page from http:/www.boostyourhealthnow.com/?page=1 to http:/www.boostyourhealthnow.com/blog. I cannot do it through Permalkinks. Permalinks are turned on but they don't effect the actual bit that is the "blog".

    That link is hardcoded in your theme, just take a look at your header.php file:
    <li class="page_item"><a href="http://www.boostyourhealthnow.com/?page=1" title="Home">Blog</a></li>

    In order to make example.com/blog to work - you need to have a Page with that title.

    What does one put in the Blog Page for it to work - or does the template take care of it for us (if it is written correctly ...)

    OK I can't believe how thick I was being.

    There are 2 settings, one for the front page - make this a wordpress page that you have populated with your landing page content.

    The second is for a "Posts page: ". Create any old empty page using the wordpress editor. I created a totally empty page called "blog". Select this - voila - you have a blog URL and a CMS for a web site.

    Here is a screengrab - so you don't have to be as thick as I was.
