Add the following to Blog Settings > Advanced > Page Header Code Injection for the blog page. Please see per-page code injection.

<style>

  .blog-single-column .blog-single-column--wrapper {
  
    display : grid;
    gap : 30px;
    grid-template-columns : 1fr 1fr;
    
    }
    
  </style>

I have the blog listing page set for side-by-side blogs, but I will change it if you tell me to.

I may not have been clear; my wish is to have each individual blog entry have two columns of text. Or better, two columns of text and then a full-width block (the width of the two above) beneath it. But I'll take what is possible.

I'm new to Squarespace, I appreciate you taking the time to help me.

No no. Only do it if you want your blog listing page to have two columns. And, of course if you don't want two columns on the blog listing page the don't use the code provided.

To have two columns in a blog post you can do that by putting two text blocks side by side.

Being new to editing on SS you might find it a bit tricky. SS likes to combine text blocks that are vertically aligned into one. If you find yourself having trouble reaching the above layout, use a text block, line block, text block. Then align your text blocks side by side and remove the line block. The line block keeps the SS combining feature from happening.
