    Aloha everyone. I have successfully installed wordpress on godaddy.. my url is http://www.silkanddance.com . I am looking for themes and plugins that will allow me to create a site that is similar to my old site, http://www.akaisilks.com . What I'd like to do is have the blog, have social networking buttons, have video, have pages that display photo galleries, bio, info about my site, etc, and finally, links to my etsy store at http://www.akaisilks.etsy.com

    Do I choose a theme first and start using plugins?

    I may also be interested in buying/using a theme or template that is commerce based/has a store integrated but I'd be happy with the other functions for now.

    Thanks in advance, I'm reading previous topics.

    Do I just download the chosen theme to my laptop, open and then it's self explanatory?
