I'd like to get started with an ambitious task of a history/photo blog about my city, possibly with others to follow. I have some basic idea of how to approach it but I'm a bit weary of reading manuals each time I start with a new software, so I'd be grateful if you could suggest some shortcuts :)
1. I need a proper theme and widgets for such a blog (WordPress.com) I have a tendency to overload blogs with stuff...
2. Heard of CSS - customising a blog is a cool thing - guess it's paid, isn't it ?
3. I'm thinking about opening a FB page to make a version of the blog, but there's something like integrating a blog with FB, which I guess is different, but I don,t know if better or more precise.
4. In my blog Categories should match pages with district descriptions. Is it possible to for the reader to see The main page exposed when they enter the blog (not just the recent entry) and when they open a category, they can see, for example the relevant sub-page description above the searched entry?
Thanks for all help !)
The blog I need help with is dariospace.wordpress.com.
