Thanks for your help. I have changed the blog setup and added Viglink
I had originally setup the blog to display 10 posts. I found that comments could only be made on the very first blog page. I went back and changed this to show one page only. It appears to be working now.
I have also added categories to the blog posts. Once the store goes live and I change it to the static home page, this should change the "blog" page so that it then take you to the last post when click on it. For now, I have had to remove the Blog page from the menu, because all it will do is take you to a blank page.

I still am having an issue with links not opening in a new page and have contacted LinkShare about this, as they state that this should not be happening. No answer yet. However, I have started using Viglink, so I now have the option of just using a url for the link. There are some pluses and minuses to this:
- First, you give up 25% of the revenue to them.
- They say that you do not have to register with any other Affiliate network to earn, but you really do. Unlike Linkshare, Viglink has no database where you can download the feed, grab the banners, graphics, etc. I have a few that I really need this for, so I have to go in and get these from Linkshare (or which ever network I am using) to get the links.
- On the plus side, there are a multitude of affiliate programs my sites do not get approved for, so I can still use regular links and get paid.
