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.

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.
