Is it possible to have a sidebar on the blog page different from the sidebar that would be on all the other pages? I hope I worded that correctly. Thanks for the help.

There is a really great plugin called Widget Logic:

http://wordpress.org...s/widget-logic/

This plugin enables you to decide where you want your widgets displayed using Wordpress's conditional tags. http://codex.wordpre...onditional_Tags

For example, if I only wanted to display my Recent Posts widget on my Blog Page, I would add is_home() to the input field that Widget Logic installs upon activation in the Widgets Menu.

Hope that helps!

You can have the same sidebar, but just include different widgets in it. You do this with Widget Logic http://wordpress.org...s/widget-logic/ which allows you to hide some widgets from the blog page and include others only on that page.
