How to Insert Blog onto a Page in Drupal 7

I created a standard Page, but I also want to insert (the summary) three blogs in the left sidebar.

What's the approach?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you go to /admin/structure/block, you can place the "recent blog posts" block in the sidebar region.

I want the summary to appear, not just the title, which is what this block is doing.

Also, beyond that, I want only certain blogs tagged with specific keyword to display.

Can this be done?

It can be done. You'll need to use the Views module to create a query to accomplish that. You can specify filters to only show blogs with the certain tags and it will generate a block for you.
