This might be a dumb question - I'm sorry for that but: If I decide to alter "Reading Settings" and choose a front page for home I can define a "Static Page" and a "Posts Page".

"Static Page" ain't leaving a question to me since it's what's gonna be grabbed if I click on my Logo. But where will I face this so called "Posts Page"?

I'm feeling confused somehow :-)

"Posts page - Select in the drop-down box the name of the Page that will now contain your Posts. If you do not select a Page here, your Posts will only be accessible via other navigation features such as category, calendar, or archive links. Even if the selected Page is Password protected, visitors will NOT be prompted for a password when viewing the Posts Page. Also, any Template assigned the Page will be ignored and the theme's index.php (or home.php if it exists) will control the display of the posts."
