Hmmm...That could be sort of complicated depending on your theme template. It might be helpful if we had a link to your WP site.

I know in my case, my theme came with a links php. page (in the design --> theme editor area.) I can go to an existing Page (not a post) or create a new one, scroll to the bottom where it says "Page Template." Open that little drop down section and choose "Links Template." Then I click on the save button.

Next I go to the dashboard and click settings --> reading --> static page --> front page, then select the Page I just edited from the drop down list, and save the changes.

If you don't have a Links Template with your theme, your best bet is to read Stepping into Templates on the WP site, ask about it on their forum, or contact the person who created your theme.

Hope some of this helps.

Where do you want to place the link - in the sidebar, the footer, the header?

Do you have your own hosting for your wordpress blog? Or do you use the free one?

In my case...I have hosting, I just click on the "create new page" link.

I'm not sure how it works with the free one. ;)
