I think I have uploaded/started/downloaded/installed a bunch of things on my computer because I want to have both a website and a blog. (I believe I have transferred both successfully today.) I used to subscribe to a host that had a template and all I did was click on the picture I liked, filled in the blanks, and presto: a gorgeous website (support and forums were dismal, hence the change). My questions:
1) For the life of me, I cannot figure out which is which. WordPress.com ~ is this the blog? Can I have an icon of this on my desktop? (I cannot locate the site or my dashboard and the edits I made yesterday have been lost, so maybe if it is on my desktop, I can find it more easily.)
2) WordPress.org ~ if this the website? Can I have an icon (shortcut?) of THIS on my desktop, too? (And how does one do this?) When I type in my website address, I get "SSL Connection Error". Does anyone know what this means?
3) BlueHost is my host and I do not have any idea what their function is and how it is related to WordPress. I have been to the BlueHost site, watched many tutorial videos, participated in the videos, but how will BlueHost benefit me? Have I just wasted $85?
To recap, in some random way I have managed to make it to my blog and play around, but I have been unable to locate it many times and login, even though I've watched the WordPress tutorial (or was it BlueHost?). WordPress is an entirely new ballgame to me and I'm sure I will like it once I get the hang of it.
The blog I need help with is tammyspianostudio.wordpress.com.
