Duplicate content even with 301 redirects

My site is http://www.stadriemblems.com and I have a 301 redirect in my .htaccess file to redirect all non-www to www and it works great. But it doesn't seem to apply to my blog, which is located at http://www.stadriemblems.com/blog

It doesn't seem to make sense that I'd need to place code in every .htaccess file of every sub-folder. If I do, what code can I use?

This is the code I have that redirects http://stadriemblems.com to http://www.stadriemblems.com

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.stadriemblems\.com$
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.stadriemblems.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Open in new window


What I am looking to do is to also redirect http://stadriemblems.com/blog/ to http://www.stadriemblems.com/blog/

And i get redirected to

Hmm, I guess the error is just in SEOmoz's crawler. It's giving me a bunch of duplicate content errors. It understands my redirects in the main directory but not the blog. Sorry to have wasted your time.

There are no stupid question; just problems to be solved.  Aaron it is guaranteed that if you participate in enough questions you will get shafted sometimes, so it just evens out. :^)
