I am using the Nameless Child Theme for Wordpress. My sidebar is showing up on all other pages except for the home (blog posts) page which is the most important page for it to show up on.

My site is http://mayziesdogblog.com.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

I see a sidebar...? – vancoder Apr 26 '13 at 22:07
I see the sidebar...? You might need to clear your browser cache if you're editing code and don't see the sidebar. – NW Tech Apr 26 '13 at 22:08
What are you viewing the site on? When the viewport gets too narrow, the sidebar drops below the content. I believe this is by design. – vancoder Apr 26 '13 at 22:10

There is a body_class set for the home page called full-width-content. That suggests to me that:

  1. The homepage intentionally does not have a sidebar. You will need to edit the template appropriate template file to change that. That should be index.php, home.php, or front-page.php.
  2. or there is a dynamic sidebar for that page but you haven't placed any widgets in it so nothing shows up. Look in Appearance->Widgets and see if there is a sidebar that seems like it should be the front page sidebar.

Either way this does look to be by design. I could do better if you could find the template for that page and post the code.
