    Just to clarify: is your site already running on WordPress, or have you added WordPress to an existing static site?

    In general:
    Add a page called blog.
    In settings set that wp will use that page for blog.
    Add blog page into the menu.
    Add a post...That's it if your theme is ready for this of course.

    In your theme settings you should be able to set any page to display as a blog template.

    For e.g. when you create a new page, on the right hand said of the page, it should give you a drop down menu to choose the page template like "Full Width, Blog, Contact Us etc. This is one way of doing it.

    If your theme doesn't have this option then you might need to set up a sub-domain like
    blog.scrapcarslegally.co.uk
    or
    Scrapcarslegally.co.uk/blog
    and install wp on that sub-domain and a blogging theme that matches your main website's design.
