Needing advice

Good Sunday afternoon to you all!

I’m in need of some advice. If you can help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

I have been contemplating dropping the “WordPress.com” portion of my blog address. Yep, that’s right. I want to jump in and make the switch to talesofabookaddict.com (assuming its available).

But I honestly have no idea as to where to begin. I understand that I have to pay WordPress a yearly fee. But is that it? Or do I need to have some kind of a host as well? Like through godaddy or something?

And how much HTML knowledge do I need to do this? Because I have very little. Although I’m sure I could read up online enough to get by in a minimal capacity.

This is something that I’ve been considering for some time now. I’ve just been afraid to take the plunge. But now I’m ready and need any and all advice I can get.

So please tell me, dear friends, any and all experience/advice you have on this matter.
