Well, this has me dazed.
A good ecommerce system doesn't put the products in the homepage, unless you set it to do that.
You should be using categories.
You can also control your homepage by creating a static hompeage. Your blog page is supposed to show everything, but that doesn't mean you have to make it public. You can use it as a backup page, and create speciality pages displaying posts by category, using plugins like Special Recent Posts.
Authors can be set up, so that you have author profiles, and again, categories work well.
In your menu, make the DIY link to that category, which then lets you display posts only from that category when they go to that link.
You have many options with WordPress. Direct category link, or create a page that brings you to the category page. WP is very flexible, and thus lets you create as many pages and categories as you desire. The blog page is just a list of everything added and doesn't have to be displayed.Go to the full post
