Ok! I decided last night that I was going to teach myself how to install WordPress and build a new blog on it. I bought hosting through Blue Host last night, verified my account via phone this morning and I still have a wacky domain that it's trying to install to. See screenshot:
I have not one clue what I'm doing, I don't understand 78.43% of the words in forums for help, so I emailed Blue Host for help - I am paying them after all. When I get this "easy 1-click install" (LIES!) of WordPress figured out, I'll post my process.
May the force be with me.
