How Can I Link to Archived Posts?

Why can’t my readers link to archive posts? This is a question I get from time to time. I do not know the answer, but I’ve got to find out. Starting to get frustrated with WordPress.  It’s getting more difficult to find my away around my own site.  What about my readers?  A blog should be more user friendly.

I think I figured it out.  Apparently, one must scroll to the bottom of the page and click on a black rectangle with white writing.
