Reading Settings for Static Front Page (3 posts)

    I think my question is about WordPress, but it may be Theme Specific:

    Regardless of the theme used, how would I create a Static Front Page using a single Cloud Tag (such as Music Videos) when using the WordPress Reading Settings?

    Currently, WordPress 3.5.2 offers a drop down list of Pages (not Categories, or Tags) in both "Your Latest Posts" and "A Static Page". Since "Posts" contain all Category Tags in creation date order, I guess that also means they are ALL contained in the WordPress Loop. Right?

    Is it possible to to create a Static Front Page using only a single category (tag) of WordPress posts without slowing down the website's rendering speed or confusing the WordPress Loop in the process?

    In other words, what I am trying to do is extract only one category (tagged) of blog posts and display them on my Static Front Page. The rest of my blog posts will have to be accessed by clicking on the proper tag in the "Tag Cloud".

    Does anybody have any idea if using Tag selection across the board slows down rendering speed of Website access in general?

    You can make a category Page, http://codex.wordpress.org/Category_Templates and use that as the static page.
