If you want to have separate chronological Blog apart from the front page that includes all posts create “Blog” page in your Admin panel.
Go to Reading Settings and select Posts Page: Blog.
Then you need to add that “blog” page to the menu and you’re done.

WordPress calls it “static” because the container pages are considered static but there are dynamic content inside.
