Blogging with WordPress is not as easy as it may seem. At least that's my opinion. Of course, I am a Type A person and prefer total control of nearly everything in life whenever possible.
For those who may be interested in learning some basic tips and tricks and getting started and all comfy, check out the tutorials scattered hither and yon across this great Internet of ours. (I'm not sure we own it but it's as available as the air we breathe. Maybe?)
There are tutorials all over the place. The first one to take a gander at is probably WordPress.com's Learn WordPress. There are WordPress tutorials on lynda.com. Apple's iTunes has some podcasts both audio and video which are both helpful as well as free.
So that's my tip for the day. Please don't tip over or over tip.
