Neophyte concerned re difficulty AND domain name linking
Hi and welcome to WP.
WP is very easy too use and does give you a lot of opportunity to ‘play’ around with your blog. However, if you just register, you can be blooging with the best of them in a matter of minutes. The best advice I can give is to just have a go with it, you can always delete posts. Use the FAQs and these forums, we’re a friendly bunch…on the whole! ;)
With regard to your domain name, you should be able to point it to another website via a control panel provided by the company you bought the domain through. So when someone types http://www.you.com it will go to your blog at you.wordpress.com
Having a domain name should also provide you with your own email address e.g. (email redacted) where you can put whatever you want where the x’s are.
Hope this help.
I am new to blogging, but not to HTML or web whacking or the Internet. My question is: how does one drive people TO your blog? I don’t get that piece? With no keywords, how are others supposed to ‘find’ your site? It’s probably something obvious, but it’s evading me…?

You can use the categories of your Posts as keywords.
I also did an article on the subject.
Hope this helps,
Have a look at my blog (click my name) and the latest post looks at this issue. Some of the comments have been really useful.
