Have the Blog Appear in Store
In order to have the Blog appear in your store, you will need to create a Custom Link.
You can either create a link in the Header Navigation by going to Edit My Design > Header & Navigation and add a link with the Blog URL key, which is /blog.
You can also add a Link to the Footer Navigation by going to Edit My Design > Footer and add the link from there.
