The Ins & Outs of Wordpress, ComicPress, & site building

UPDATE: I'm settled on where I wanna go with the hosting(found one that was quite affordable)- been absorbing quite a bit of stuff on WP by watching YouTube; just still havent settled on a theme to use. Listened to a podcast some weeks ago & it got me doing research into responsive WP themes(that would help with making my site a little more mobile-friendly): I've narrowed it down to about 15-20 to choose from- hopefully I can pick one, and eventually get started on this thing.
