OK Monshu and whoever else is reading this. I got it to work my way by doing this:
I wanted to be able to click on a link right from the About page, to take me to all the posts.
To do this, I went into Options/Reading then Front Page displays and I clicked static page.
Next I created an additional Page and named it Enter. There is nothing in this page, just a title.
Next, I went back to Options/Reading and clicked for Posts Page, Enter. Good, that created a Page for the posts but I wanted to be able to click on the link from my "About" page so I clicked on "Enter", noted the Permalink in the address bar, copied it. Then I went back into the About page in the coding section and pasted this link, which in my case is:
To view posts click Here
That gave me the link I was after.
