I am trying to install/setup wordpress.org and so far it has been really easy. I am very surprised. If you have a layout already made all you need to do is cut and paste it into the text boxes. It is almost as easy as myspace. :( I hate myspace though.
You can see what I have done so far at http://www.twodayslate.com/blog/ . I am still trying to work out the kinks. Thank you wordpress!
