One normally creates a blog page first, not a block. Then you go to that page in config hit the + sign and add a new post.  What you call a blog block looks like a summary block page, but it doesn't  go anywhere. Summary blocks can pull content from a blog, including thumbnails and text excerpts. The actual blog when using a summary goes into the unlinked section of your site, so it stays off the nav bar, and the summary takes its place. The read more button/link takes you to that post. I can't tell exactly why your read more link does not do that but it obviously can't find the blog post that is being previewed. Is the blog  page enabled in config? If not it would explain the can't find page error. 

These instructions appy to 7.0 sites,  Anya as well as any other template in the Bedford family.
