I created a static front/home page for my WP site, http://www.michaelsemer.com. It's done using the Piano Black theme.
I set the Reading settings to Front Page: Home, Posts Page: Bloggery.

So I'd obviously like to clean up this situation so the posts are going where I want them. My Loop code looks intact, but I'm no expert, obviously. Would deletion of prior posts make a difference?
