Laura Kalbag

Barnaby Walters unfortunately not easily enough to setup on your own space. (I’m talking really basic users).

.Laura Kalbag “on your own space” is important but not a prerequisite of (IMO at least). The domain name is the most important thing, so starting with hosted wordpress.com or tumblr or even just redirecting to it is valid and an easy first step.

I’d encourage you to check out the Getting Started Guide — feedback/edits gratefully accepted, it’s important to me that the guide is as helpful and clear as it can be.
