WordPress Virgin !!!

So I am completely new to this this site. Every detail is rather alien to me so I ask that you please persevere. I have decided to join the mystical world of blogging after a long advisement chat with my English teacher. He kindly suggested that I create a blog to help receive recognition and improve my overall writing skills. So here it goes …. Wish me luck, I may need it … I’m not really a technology friendly person.
