I'm interested in learning how to design sites using wordpress too... If any of the experts here can offer advice or post links for a good resource, that would be very much appreciated.

I'm no expert but my wordpress process goes something like this...

Step 1. Install wordpress
Step 2. Google how to change what I need changed.

Bazookaman,

Do you use wordpress.com or wordpress.org? I'm interested in the self hosted version.

Bazookaman,

Do you use wordpress.com or wordpress.org? I'm interested in the self hosted version.

I've never hosted a site from within wordpress. I always secure outside hosting. Usually from Dreamhost. They have a nice easy install for Wordpress. But most hosts do the same these days. I worked on a site hosted within Wordpress once and it was amazingly crippled. There were so many options missing. And lots of stuff you just plain aren't allowed to do.

I'm using the free version from WP.com, and it is indeed limited in functionality. But I'm just getting my feet wet (see in my sig), and can't justify either a steep learning curve with DIY options from WP.org, or paying money for more capability with WP.com. Actually, what you can do is pretty neat, all things considered. They do a lot for you.

A few years ago I setup a blog/site for my home arcade projects...

I use bluehost and installed wordpress from wordpress.org. I pretty much hacked my way through it with some help from my friend who is kind of a pro. I added a css plugin utility to firefox and could visually tweak my code (just for previewing) and then would use Text Wrangler to edit my style sheets. I can "try" and help but would be more of a "point him in the right direction".
