The actual blog and entries are again view-able and accessible. Before coming to the present configuration, I had almost come to terms with 'nixing' the blog aspect altogether.
Initially, my primary focus was on creating my portfolio. After doing so, I wasn't sure if Pixel-Vixen necessitated an actual blog, nor where and how I was to fit in the blog.
Without a solution to the placement issues, the blog aspect was not included in the design and remained inaccessible. I wasn't completely comfortable with the idea of 'nixing' the blog completely, seeking an alternative solution remained on my agenda.
I was able to come to the current configuration thanks to the help I found on the Blogger Help Forum, The Real Blogger Status, and Blogger-Hints-and-Tips. Utilizing labels to 'index,' posts, the blog entries are now accessible for public viewing: http://www.pixel-vixen.com/search/label/
The ground-work for placement within Pixel-Vixen's main design laid out, it wont be long for it to be fully implemented and included.
