A New Source of Blogging Information on How to Do Stuff on WordPress.com

I guess it was always there... but it just jumped up and bit me right now.  I have no clue how many times it's been on the page, and I have just simply missed it.

I am talking about a great source for Learning Information about WordPress.com (that's the easy one)... not WordPress.org.

I have been messing around... experimenting is probably a more "polite" word for it... with WordPress.com.  Ever since the Active Rain mess about ten months ago with all the 502 Server Errors and all that other stuff... I have been trying to learn WordPress.

It's tough, cuz I have not been able to find a place where it is simply "taught."  So... it's been kind of "hunt and peck"... a little here, a little there.

So many of the tutorial videos on YouTube are so grossly outdated, or so poorly taught... that they are close to being useless as well.

But... a few days ago I found WordPress.com - Forums.

This section of the WordPress.com site has a very long list of questions that have been asked of WordPress... and the answers from the staff, and from other WordPress bloggers... and the discussions that have followed.

And... today, when I was just bored, and browsing the list of topics, I saw there was a question on changing type fonts, and increasing the font type size. 

I clicked on it, and discovered that there was a question being asked... that I could actually answer.  ME !  Gawrsh.  I knew a WordPress answer.  Here is a link to that "miracle happening" : Typekit font for Coraline theme « WordPress.com Forums.  (My screen name on WP is MyOlderSister)

And when I learned what I shared in my "answer" to that question on the WordPress forum... I actually had to learn a smidge of HTML in order to DO it.  Which I did !

I am so excited. 

Last Sunday... was my 67th birthday.  So I'm figuring... that with this NEW WordPress thingie info source... and my finally starting to understand this stuff... I just might be able to figure out what I am doing by my Seventieth Birthday.  How Cool is that ?
