Everyone here offering advice is an unpaid volunteer. So it is a wasted effort to complain that you're going to give up on WordPress -- that is unlikely to make much difference to anyone in these forums.
The learning curve for customization can be steep. The WordPress for Dummies book is pretty good for people who are still picking up technical skills.
Alternatively, though, you could host your site with WordPress.com (or Blogger, for that matter), where most of the technical stuff is already taken care of -- your ability to customize is somewhat diminished, but it may be a far less frustrating experience.
