What am I doing wrong?

please look at thepatentself.net and thepatentself.net/my-front-page i followed the steps for adding blocks and i don’t know why the two are not linked? why can i not see the blocks on the first one like in the demo? thanks!

You must assign a static front page - this is how you would do with any WordPress theme, not just Sydney. See these 46 seconds of video here: https://athemes.com/documentation/sydney/#frontpage
