    Hello!
    I hope the question is not too basic:
    How to start a (new) blog (ie, a basic website) from a theme I have chosen?

    Do you have WP installed? This may be a good starting point:

    Do you have WP installed?

    Yes, of course. And I did read the documentation (like, 'Where_to_Start'), but went around circles. For example,
    http://codex.wordpress.org/First_Steps_With_WordPress
    suggests: 'Begin by logging into the “administration area” or the back end of your website.'
    That assumes I already have a website. (Actually, I do; but it has nothing to do with the blog I want to write.)
    Under 'Manage themes', I have
    Current Theme
    Annotum Base.
    What to do? If I click 'Customize', I get
    You are previewing... what? the large window on the right is blank.
    I have filled Title and Tagline; then, what?

    What is the URL of your site? What you do depends on what you want to put on your site?

    Sounds like you want to start adding content - i.e. create posts or pages, create a menu...

    http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Lessons

    There are MANY tutorials, resources, YouTube videos, WP videos about how to use WP...so you could start looking for some if you find the info in the Codex lacking.
