Thank you for your kind words. I'd suggest you use Special Recent Posts, but also create a backup default blog page (as a static page, set for blogs in Dashboard > Settings > Reading). Special Recent Posts is a plugin that is free, though the paid version is very inexpensive.
SRP allows you to separate the posts by category if you wish. It uses shortcodes which you customize to display whatever you wish. You'd create a page for Ask Maj, and apply the shortcode for that category to the page. There, only posts from the Ask Maj category will show.
Create another static page called blog-2 and insert a generic shortcode (without category option) in that page. But at the bottom, create a link to the default blog page.
