Earlier you learnt about how to create your own website. Now if you want to setup a custom homepage for your Blogger, well, there is a way too, but sometimes it creates a problem too. Make sure it is not so in your case, although you can use it then also.

Pages -> New Page -> Web Address.

  1. Ive followed the steps above, but now I have no way to access my blog posts. Clicking 'Home' just brings me to my welcome static page.

    1. This can be solved simply either by linking your posts on your home page or add a widget named "Archive", like you can see in this page the same widget named 'Shelf'
      Hope your problem is solved!

    2. It's not practical to link all my posts one by one, or depend on the archive gadget to access my posts for the sake of having a static page as a homepage - it's purpose-defeating. Thanks anyway.

    3. There wasn't any link to your website, and you left no hint of how you wanted to achieve it. The only thing that was known, was that you wanted to access your blog posts. That was mere a general solution. Hope you have understand what was the earlier reply for.
