    I’m so confused with this…I am ready to start blogging but don’t know where to begin! Do I go to the dashboard and create posts from there? Do I click on my blog page and click where ( http://dvocphotography.com/blog/ )it says to start?? I also would like to add small slides to my posts at times instead of just one image, how is that done? Any direction you can give would be great! I’ve been watching videos but I’m not finding any that are helping me. I've also installed some plugins that I like such as catablog, category grid view and Yet Another PhotoBlog...Any recommendations on these? I've read the tutorial in WP covering getting started blogging, but it is overwhelming... Can anyone in the WP community lend a helping hand??

    Hi, yes I did read that...so according to the instruction, I should go through my dashboard to create posts? I have started creating categories, is that one of the first steps as well?

    Correct. Everything you need to do should be carried out via your site's dashboard.

    is that one of the first steps as well?

    That's entirely up to you.

    Yep. That's probably the best way to learn. You will also find lots of supporting documentation on http://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page

    Cool. I've read a lot of those topics. Thank you for your help...one final question. I made a "gravatar" but can't seem to update it to my profile on here, how do I go about doing that?
    Thanks.

    You need to create an account on gravatar.com and upload your gravatar image to that account. Do ensure that you use the same email address for your gravatar.com account as you used in your WordPress site.
