    Hi,

    Well I just installed WordPress and I noticed there is so much info to read. So I thought I ask first if there is an easier way to customize my blog. What I want to do is insert images, change the background color, put adsense beside it, punt some banners next to (beside) my blog, stuff like that. But how do I start ?!?!

    Cheers Simone

    1. You could pay someone to do the work for you - that would certainly be easier.
    2. You could use an existing theme that someone else has created - see http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ - only problem is that you don't get exactly what you want, only what has already been created. If you want your own exact design you will have to do it yourself....
    3. Start reading http://codex.wordpress.org/Blog_Design_and_Layout#Themes_and_Templates.
    You will find that it isn't as hard as you think if you just take it one step at a time.

    First- create the html and css. make it beautiful looking.
    Second- Find the "basic" theme and cut up the html that you just made and add it to the basic theme. It's a little complicated but its not really all that hard.

    thats a simplified way of doing it. There are tons of tutorials out there so just google em.
