Homepage and Sidebar

I had given a task yesterday and the location where I will post the link is the homepage, I was confused so I inquire the FBU, hoping I could get an answer from there. And after like how many minutes of posting my question another one has explained and there’s the other. So I put the links in my sidebar since there’s one who said the side bar is included but it depends. As I was already in a hurry I still put it in the sidebar, early this morning, one clarified but maybe it should be on the first page or homepage of my blog, as I was on my way to edit it. I found out it in my dashboard, that the task that was given to me was approved so I guess sidebar and homepage is the same or it depends. Yay! I am still confused, hehehe!
