    I’d really like to start a blog — I have lots of things to say — but most of what I’ve seen here scares me to pieces. Widgets, META, RSS, PPP, getting verified by Google — just the technical stuff sounds like a full-time job. I just want to write interesting things on a nice-looking page and get some comments back from time to time. Can I really do this here? Thanks for any comments anyone might have.

    You seriously don’t need to worry about ANY of that. You can just click on your blog and start writing. When you want to do fancier things like post pictures or video or save it to publish later while you’re away, or whatever, you can read the FAQ at the top of the page and that will show you some more options.

    You do not need to do ANY of that stuff to start blogging. Seriously. Just type and hit Publish.

    I agree, I am totally new to this, started last week and it is really easy, just start with a couple of posts, then as you get used to WordPress try a few other things, maybe add some images etc’.

    Happy blogging!

    Remember that Google is your best friend. 90% of what I know about blogging and computers and html and codes is by Googling.
