Hi there Louis,

Here's how you can change you home page into a blog page:

1. If you would like to keep the current index page, click on the down-arrow next to "Save" and select "Save As" to save the page with a new name.
2. Click on "New Page".
3. Name the page "index" and select the "Blog Page" option.

You will get a message telling you that your index page already exists and asking if you want to overwrite it. Say "yes". This will replace your current index page with a blog page and your site will start on your blog page.

Please click here for a tutorial: Creating your blog with Yola.

Please note - While this method allows you to turn a new, blank blogpage into your homepage page, it is not possible to transfer a developed blogpage with content onto your homepage.
