Ok, so I'm new to blogging and I'm trying to get started.

I can see a bit of learning is involved. I have now watched many videos.

Now wordpress.org is downloaded is it a good idea to use a website builder like Elementor? Will it slow my site down?

Cheers!

Honestly I would say you don’t need Elementor

If you are just looking to make a clean crisp blog then look at Wordpress themes like Neve

I'm thinking I might pay Host Presto to build the background for me so it' all ready to go. Do you know of anyone who has paid them to do this?

I haven't given it as much attention as it should be getting. I keep watching YouTube vids, and they all have different ways. I'm just not feeling grounded with it yet - confident. I don't want to publish anything until I feel at home with it because if anything needs adjusting I might be a daft ass and mess it up.

Honestly, I would save your money. If you are using Wordpress you can just find a theme you like and install it and then go into appearance > customise and make it look however you want :)

Jon,

The problem is I can't seem to customise my site however I want.

I feel stuck.

I'm trying to centre the title and that's not happening. I'm just (trying) to mess about with it, so I can understand it.

I'm not typing anything on it that will be used and will be deleted as I just want to understand how to use WP before doing 'my thing'.

I go to the little house part on Cpanel (or is that WordPress?) and I have - This is the Title (just for now). I'm trying to centre it but it's not happening.

I go to
Appearance - Customise

I get onto the page with the left-hand menu. I click on the words and a rectangle box appears with a pencil at the bottom left-hand corner. I try clicking it on but nothing happens.

Stuck Stuck Stuck!

You would have to share the URL of your website + what you are trying to achieve for me to help you ;)
