    Hey Katie, you can actually do both. If you are running on a Mac, to install it locally you'll need to setup MAMP first. MAMP basically sets up a web server on your computer. As for your hosting account, you probably already have ftp access and would just need to ftp the WordPress files up to your site and create a database.

    Hope that helps!

    Any suggestions on how I can learn as much as possible before this meeting. I'm a newbie, so bare with me! I know how and where to search for "templates," etc...But what I do need to know from you "experts" is do I install WordPress on my iMac Hard Drive? Do I need to upgrade my hosting account to have an FTP site to install WordPress on the server or I've read that some people install it "locally?" I'm a designer, but very technically savy and know a little html/css code. Also, Dreamweaver?
