Adding a blog page to site with posts on home page (2 posts)

    The only web design experience I have is making my own site so please be patient with me! And I don't trust myself with code

    My site: http://www.whitneylhicks.com, hosted on Blue Host, theme: Hatch

    The homepage of my site features my art and design work as ordered posts. The categories (interiors, products, sculpture, 2D) in the menu isolate these categorized posts. I would like to keep this current format and add a blog page (it's been added and is waiting to be blogged on!)

    How do I get this blog page to act as a blog that does not affect the current format? I would like to easily update it with posts from my iphone and ipad. Do I need a new theme? Should I link this blog page to a recommended (and preferably free) blogging app that works with wordpress? Am I trying to turn a horse into a zebra?

    Thank you for any and all input!

    You're trying too hard :)

    - create a new category called Blog
    - create a new menu item of the Categories type and choose the Blog category you just created
    - create your blog posts and assign them to the Blog category :)

    Note: if you haven't already, you'll have to create a new, custom menu to do the above. Here is a great place to read up on how to do this:
