Very confused on how this site works

  1. I am very confused on how to make my blog. Not sure if i should purchase a premium one, but My whole theme of my blog is dedicated to things that i love and inspire me. I want the top bar to have 5 main titles and each title I will have something new every day..for example.. Inspiration, love..havent thought of all titles yet, but how do i do this and make everything look presentable? Also, i purchased a domain name, which is the same as my blog, how do i do this?

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

    Those are categories that you can create an assign to posts.

    Among the most common misconceptions is that bloggers fail to understand is
    (1) there is only one page we can post to in any blog and
    (2) the static pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ they create do not automatically update.

    Only the dynamic pages like Categories, Tags and Archives created by the software when we publish a post we that we have assigned Categories and Tags too will update automatically update with new posts.

    By default the front page of the blog is the post that displays all posts in your blog. Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ 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 create a custom menu and add the dynamic categories pages into the custom menu.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-category-pages

    Here’s a link to a custom menu walk-through > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

    There are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here. > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/

  3. What I posted above applies to every theme here.

    Also, i purchased a domain name, which is the same as my blog, how do i do this?

    For domain mapping instructions see here please http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the primary blog set up it can take between 24 - 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What's important during that stage is to be patient.

    I recommend using the step by step tutorial that Staff have linked to the bottom of your Admin page at http://learn.wordpress.com
