We have reproduced the steps you took and the archive control seemed to work correctly - by clicking on the various dates the control displayed the blog posts and the URL had the correct date on which the blog post was published. Can you confirm whether you want to just have a rewrite module, or you are not seeing the blog posts, because if you have blog posts published that cannot be seen, the problem is most likely located elsewhere. Can tell us your scenario, so we can make sure that we are on the same track?
