Beginning WordPress, From the Beginning

As I type this, I don’t even have a blog yet.  This post was actually written before the website was even started!  Why do it this way?  Because I want to document every victory and every mistake I make as a beginning WordPress User.  Hopefully at least one person out there in cyberspace will find something useful in this blog. The first decision that I made is that I want the site to pay for itself.  I don’t expect to retire on it, but I sure wouldn’t matter if the site picked up its own tab.  I’ve never tried to get a website to support itself before either, so I’m a two-time neophyte.  Because of this direction, I’m going to pay to have my site hosted instead of being a free WordPress blog.  Plugins, widgets, and who knows what else await me.  What am I getting into? I used to be competent at computer programming.  Slinging code since I was a kid, I could cobble together code to make things happen.  I got an engineering degree and went into industry, then returned and got an MBA in order to move to the business side of business.  Since 2002 I haven’t written anything more complex than an Excel formula.  And I don’t want to relearn how to program. So from manually coding HTML in the 90’s to being completely obsolete in 2012, I am returning to technology with the same knowlege as anybody else.  Perhaps that old foundation will make itself seen, but if I have to write any code I’ve failed in my goal. My goal is simple.  Beginning WordPress...
