In the gray bar that says Bio, Activity, Content, Connections, Click on "Content"
You'll now find a link to your personal blog in the left column under the heading "Your Blog" - click that link

Add relevant tags to each blog post
When writing each blog post, include any relevant tags to help differentiate your blog posts later. For example, if your blog is about European travel, you could add tags for each country. Or if your blog captures restaurant critiques, you could add tags for the type and location of each establishment.
