Static Home Page or Blog Roll
Has anybody got a static home page rather than the blog roll that seems to be the automatic option for most themes? I have been cogitating about this for at least a month so just thought I would ask for a few opinions on whether people prefer a static home page rather than a blog roll and are there particular advantages to each option?
I wondered about having a welcome type page with the aim of the website as a static homepage as although my website is for affiliate marketing for people with disabilities and chronic illness this seems to get a bit lost with the blog roll on the home page. However, I have also thought that as people may not come to the site via the home page this may not be important.
So have you got a static homepage or do you think that sometimes it is an advantage? Your thoughts would be most appreciated!
