  1. How can I add an email address? I'd like people to be able to contact me. And how can I have multiple pages for different topics on my blog. It's an advice blog, so I'd like different pages for different types of advice.
    Also I can't figure out how to embed the links in the blog text, so people can just click on the words in the text to link out.

    The blog I need help with is ivegotaproblemblog.wordpress.com.

  2. How can I add an email address? I'd like people to be able to contact me.

    WordPress.com provides a secure cointact form. Rather than posting an email address for email address harevesting spam bots to harvest for their spam masters we us theat contact form. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/

    To create links in posts and pages see > http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/
    This is the general link model:
    <a href="URL HERE">Highlighted anchor text here</a>
    To make an anchor text link like this one ive got a problem blog you type this first ive got a problem blog and then you highlight it with your mouse, click the chain (link) icon in your editor and enter the URL and the
    ivegotaproblemblog.wordpress.com title and click insert.

    What's critical when creating a custom menu is understanding how blogs are designed and being clear on the differences between pages and posts. A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or Tags pages and/or Custom Links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide.

    Pages are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.
    Choice 1 static front page
    Choice 2 running page for all posts on front page
    Which do you choose? It’s one or the other.
    If you choose a static front page then you have to create two pages as I said above. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page. We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can either put the categories widget into the sidebar, or you can create a custom menu and add the categories pages that are automatically generated by the software into the custom menu.
