Is it mobile responsive?

Yes, provided that you are using a mobile responsive Genesis Framework theme.

Do posts automatically update on the page?

Yes. Once set up, each widget added to the page stays up to date. Whenever writing a new post, assign the appropriate category, tag or taxonomy. The page will automatically list the most recent post for that category/tag/taxonomy.

Some of the images are missing or blank. What gives?

The page is dependent on assigning a featured image. Check the post and make sure a featured image is assigned to the post.

ALL of the images are missing or blank.

Check to see if you have set up your blog archives to display a featured image (Genesis > Theme Settings > Content Archives > Show Featured Image? is checked and an image size is specified).
