I believe this is actually theme dependent. I personally ignore it unless I really need to scrape for all the SEO chutzpah I can get. IMHO - you're better off just making sure the theme is setup well (doesn't need to be perfect SEOwise) and then focus on the other higher value SEO items like great copy and backlinks.

Yes, this is theme dependent. The post title should be H1 on the post page and either H1 or H2 on the listing pages. In my opinion, the site name should never be Hanything, but should get wrapped in a div.
This is usually pretty easy to change in most themes and I usually do, more because it offends my OCD personality than for any particular SEO benefit.

I don't want the blog's home page have H tags applied like on the posts' pages. That's the cause of the problem as originally theme makers started from the home page. There, you have your blog's name which is H1 and then one or more posts where H2 or H3 is applied to their titles. Post pages are different story. That's why two headers should be provided: one for a home page and another one for posts pages.
I wondered about what people actually do to make this right.

Thanks. What I'll do is create a new header for single pages while leaving original for a home page. That way home page carries the H1 on title of the blog while single post pages will have that swapped.
