How to customize my WordPress Homepage

I have WordPress and a PowerPress Blubrry plug-in, for my podcast. And thus far, I have only added my logo.

I need to see what options I have to customize the landing page.

Do I need to create a new Page for this? If so, how do I make that page the default?

I want to customize that page using conventional WordPress tools.

Thanks

Best advise I have is go to your local library or Amazon and get a copy of the 3rd edition of Wordpress: the Missing Manual .

Is there a digital way to get this Missing Manual? A PDF? A video I can watch?

You can set any static page as your home
Go to appearance > customize https://yoursite.com/wp-admin/customize.php.  You will see a section for homepage settings. Select choose a static page then select the page you want.

As far as customizing, what is it you want to do?  You can already add content ask you like.  Do you mean you want to customize your theme? Change color etc?
