Using WordPress is Easy Peazy!
First, this site is a fully hosted WordPres site, and you have full admin access. It is your site, to do with what you want. You do not have FTP access, but I can upload whatever you can;t upload through the WordPress dashboard, which covers just about 95% of what you might need.
Should, at a later date, you want to host your site yourself, I can cleave this site into it’s own hosting account though BlueHost. That will take some time on my part, but it would be by the hour, and I will not kill you, just need to be covered for my time.
In the meantime, you just need to take some time and get into the drivers seat and start playing around with the various tools with the dashboard. The site is fully backed up, so do not be afraid, I can fix anything that might get broken, I have your back.
Here are some useful hardcore links to get you started:
