I just started a new blog and all the urls look like this:

But how do people make the url have the title of the blog

From the WordPress Codex, this is how to enable permalinks in your blog. From your admin dashboard on the left side go to Settings -> Permalinks

In the Settings → Permalinks panel (Options → Permalinks before WordPress 2.5), you can choose one of the "common" structures or enter your own in the "Custom structure" field using the structure tags.

Please note: You never, ever put your site url in the permalinks slot. You must use one of the structure tags, or a combination of tags only.
