    I know I am not asking anything new so forgive me
    I would like to have a weblog at my own domain name, I do not have a host, but would like to see if I am up to the task of customising a template, before I make the leap.
    How do I play about on my own PC.I am totally new to this but looking for something to do over Xmas instead of arguing with family!

    What is an easy theme for me to start with?

    my ultimate aim is a photoblog with a dark background!

    Head on over to http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html - download the distro that best fits your needs, install. Then set up wordpress locally - great tutorial here: http://tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/xampp/ - download some themes, and have at it.

    I guarantee it's more fun than family crap.

    And for a really cool photoblog theme: http://www.kineda.com/cookies-and-cream-wordpress-photography-theme/
