I have been using blogger and after hearing all of the rave reviews about hosting your own blog and using I convinced my husband that this was the best option for his site.  We bought the domain, paid for hosting, and got it all set up and neither of us can figure out a single thing.


I know how to post to it but that's about it.  My question is how in the world do you learn how to use


I activate plugins but they don't show up on the mainpage, I can't figure out how to customize anything.  I'm beginning to wonder if this was a good idea.


I would really appreciate any feedback on how to learn how to use this.

I Tandi,


The best way to learn how to use WordPress is to either go to the website and read the help topics and forums or got to YouTube and search for videos that match what you are looking for.


I can help you through a one-on-one tutorial if you'd like. A little hand holding in the beginning is usually all you need to get up and running.


Let me know how I can help.

I find that I often can get help by googling what I am looking for and reading articles.

Once you start doing things you'll see that it's quite easy. Just play around with things. You can always undo them. Just don't change any file names on your server. That's a big no no.

Are you using a free theme or did you have one done for you?

My husband taught me how to use transfers from blogger to wordpress for free as a business (he gets paid from commission off the hosting sales, instead of being paid by the customer), so he knows his stuff. You can find him at and I'm sure he can answer your questions..sorry I can't be of more help myself.

Just found this link with video tutorials hopefully this will help!!

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
