    Just got domain and hosting for new travel blog for my round the world adventure, but don't know how to blog at all. Wordpress is harder than expected,especilly with embedding videos and pics.
    I am a lowly beginner. I was going to pay WP Tangerine
    to help; they are pricey.But I really want to be able to do it myself.

      I can help you at a very reasonable rate, moving to Charleston this coming week and so hopefully we will be able to chat at the Summerville Meetup. Cheers/Seth

      ps: It's really not that hard, you will probably catch on very quickly :)
