Great! Don't give up, Cybernia! You will love WordPress. Greymatter was my first blog tool once I got my own web hosting account and at the time I loved what all it could do. But time to move on. This latest incarnation of WordPress has many fabulous plugins so you can make your site whatever you want it to be, with a great deal more ease than ever.
Oh, and since this is WordPress Backup Week, let me reiterate:
Once you get your stuff uploaded into WordPress and get it all up and running, back your site up!! Then you can continue working on fine tuning it and grabbing plugins. But again, develop the habit of backing it up! Especially after any kind of overhauling!
