    this may seem elementary to some, but a problem for me...

    every contact form i try to implement on my blog asks me to put [contact-form] where i want the form to go. using [contact-form] or anything like that just doesnt work on my blog. is there a different way of implementing that? maybe some sort of php code?

    You need to put that shortcode inside a post or it won't work. I'm not sure if there is a plugin that let's you hardcode it in the template file.

    what do you mean inside a post?

    Put the shortcode inside a post or page through the wordpress dashboard (where you write your blog posts) and use the loop to get that post or page on youre blog.

    Most contact forms also have a readme which might explain it better.
