Configure WordPress menu item to point to my blog page, where all of my blogs are visible.

New to WordPress, asking lots of questions and getting lots of answers here on EE.  It really surprises me how few Experts we have with significant points in the WordPress topic area.

Anyway, I'm using the eSell theme and am making good progress.  However, in my menu, I have a menu item titled "My Blog".  When I click on this, I would like it to take me to a list of my blog posts with their short descriptions and buttons for "read more" or something like that.  This worked in a previous theme, but I found I care for that theme.

Looking for ideas on how to accomplish this.

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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 want to list one specific category of posts, simply link to the category slug and that will display the archive of that category.

If you have multiple categories of posts you want to display, you can create a new Page Template that will set The Loop to query and return those posts.

You can also create a new, blank page and set it to be your Posts Display page under Appearance | Reading in Settings.

Finally, there are several plugins that will accomplish the task:

Thanks, Jason.  Had to look around a bit for that but finally found it.
