If you don’t want a website that looks like a blog you have to options you can create a page and make that the homepage or you can use a magazine theme. A magazine theme is a blog but the post on the front page are not layed out in the traditional linier fashion. All the post are layed out as thought it was a magazine. This looks best when you have a lot of photos. There are limited magazine themes on WordPress.com although I expect they will get more later.
