As you can see on the Internet Marketing Action website/blog, the home page is a “static” page and not the usual list of the latest blogs.
By telling WordPress to take your visitors to this “home” page, it appears more like a website. You do this, after creating the page that you want to be your home page, within the blog’s admin dashboard – go to Settings, Readers, and then choose the page you want the “front page” to display.
If you find that this still leaves you with an extra “home” page, it may be that your chosen theme has one coded into the header.php file, so you then have to remove that piece of code. Either ask someone of a geek persuasion to quickly do that for you, or have a look yourself. I found the WordPress support forum topic on eliminating one of two “home” buttons useful – but if you’re not sure, give me a shout and I can try to help you.
