New to Wordpress and need some help
Greetings everyone, my name is Rob and I am confused and bewildered at what I am trying to do. I have a PLR company that is going to sell me a prefab website for me to use in my new business adventure. The owner of the site says to use Wordpress once I get the site sent to me. This way I can change the site and add to it as I need to. At first this was all confusing to me. After looking into Wordpress, I am even more confused. Since I am completely and totally new to building and editing websites, it is like trying to learn another language. I can't even figure out how to install Wordpress on my laptop let alone use it. Can anyone recommend a course of action to assist me with installing and using Wordpress beyond the basic internet search which was not very helpful to someone that doesn't understand any of the language. Thanks

Glad to have you join the forum, a great place to learn and share.
You do not really need to install WordPress on your own computer although some find it helpful (since you can preview and save drafts on line before posting I never have bothered). Usually you do not need to install it on your site—your host will usually do it with what is commonly called a one button click installation but if you are getting something already set up for you, you have to see what you get to see if you are getting a site set up of some kind or just content.
Do not panic, WordPress is not that hard to learn although it has lots of bells and whistles that you can learn over time.

Making money online is not difficult. What is difficult is the discipline one needs to stay focused on the process.
Like James said, you will find it's really not hard. If you want to install it locally you can do so by going to http://www.instantwp.com But since this is your first site, no one will know it's live anyway so no need for a test platform unless you just want to.
After you've installed WP thru your host, just go to yourdomain.com/wp-admin and you can begin your site with the user/pass you already created with your host.
