Of course, I’m not worrying about plugins at this point.. or things like opt in forms.

2. My blog posts were going “404” on me. ooops.  Page doesn’t exist. Damn.. quick Google search. This is new to me.. and probably here to teach me a lesson for thinking I could be so cocky to think I could get a basic site up and running so quickly, and declaring it in public!

Sometimes it’s that easy. I got lucky.  If this helps anyone new to WP, mission accomplished.
