I have begun categorizing my blog posts by topic, but the home page still lists e very post I have posted. How can I create a new blog roll for just the Home page, to keep things more general, or how can I list all of the categories again on the home page? I see several sites either keeping their Home pages a generic/how to blog, or re-listing three Categories in the tab. I am using the Mercia theme. Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

Thanks!

You would write a post or page explaining about your different categories. We call that "my category page or post" (you can think of a better name later). If you want comments to be on for "my category page or post", make it a post.

Then in your WP Dashboard, select Settings, then select Reading Settings, then change "Your Homepage displays" to a static page. Then select the "my category page or post". And click "save changes".

Job done, I think.

Out of curiosity and in the interest of being thorough is there any way to create a separate blog for the homepage?

Not as far as I know.

You could call your 'my category page or post' 'my home page or post' and do it that way...
