Hello,
To show a Quick Launch you need to add it to the blog's Master Page file.
You need to customize the Master Page using SharePoint Designer and add the Quick Launch control to the page wherever you want. The easiest way is to copy Quick launch part from a team site's Master Page to your blog's Master Page.
