My site: http://www.gotodesigns.co.uk/ is a child of the twentyeleven theme. I have made the front page static in the reading menu, and made a page for the blog and selected this also.
I made a custom page template for the front page called template-home.php.
code here: http://pastebin.com/x2VpFWWm
I want to display 2 of the latest blog posts in the left column. I have searched and come up with only one post on another site: http://www.corvidworks.com/articles/wordpress-content-on-other-pages
This appears to be what i want.
Is there a better/updated way to approach what im doing here? Or is the link to the corvidworks post still good practice and good to go ahead with.
As this way doesn`t give me the linked header text and image from the original post.
