I was thinking about starting a new website using WordPress. I'd like to really focus on selling my writing services. Would it be possible to use the "Page" feature as a blog and have my Home Page, well as my Home or Landing Page. I want a more polished, professional look. What do you think?

I think I have done with my site what you are describing above.
I set up my website to promote myself as a writer, but also have a blog. I have used my name as domainname instead of my blogname.
The theme I used is called Suffusion, and it gave me the option to have a landing page with welcome text and below that the latest posts of my blog. That way it looks a bit more professional.
You can also create static pages that go on the navigation bar in different levels.

Great advice Maria!
And Wordpress has that feature built in also, you can go to Settings >Reading and choose to have a static "Page" as your home page, once you've created that static Page.
Another idea is to create a "Sticky" post, which will always remain as the first post on your home page, without needing to change any settings or create a special Page....so you can create a "welcome" post, make it Sticky, and then below that will show your most recent blog posts.
OMG! I forgot about the static page and sticky post. Thanks for the reminders.
Dutchie -- Nice website and thanks for the theme.
