    Hi!
    I am completely new to wordpress but i would love to make a blog, and have created one online:
    http://sophieisstartingablog.wordpress.com
    But I have no idea how to install the whole wordpress thing, and my images on the blog that I upload through my computer don’t show up… what do I have to do?
    Do I have to install WordPress on my computer? How do I make my images show up?

    Thank you so much

    Are you trying to move from the site above to a self-hosted WordPress.ORG site? Or are you just asking about how to use the site you started above – if so you are in the wrong forums – go here:

    I don’t know anything about hosting, I just created a blog online and realized there is some content that needs to be downloaded. What is hosting?

    These forums are for self-hosted WordPress.ORG sites – not the same as WordPress.COM – where you set up your site. Please see this re: the differences:

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org

    oooh, I see, so if I want to keep it free and easy, I don’t have to manage any widgets and any downloads?

    Right, WordPress.COM takes care of the backend, technical stuff so it’s easier to use, but it’s also more limited – i.e. you can’t install plugins or sell things and various other tradeoffs. But it’s certainly a good way to start out – you can always move your site to self-hosted later if you decide you want more flexibility/options.

    But .COM sites still have widgets – but those are not complicated – just see the good documentation for .COM sites and post on their forums if you have more questions.
