I hope this is as straight forward as it sounds. If so, excellent resource!

One of the best things about blogging on WordPress.com is that, within moments of signing up, you can get a site up and running without any website building experience. No prior knowledge required.
However, you may have heard the phrase that “scripting is the new literacy.” Since I work in support on WordPress.com, one of the more common questions that I see asked is, “I published a post, and now my sidebar is at the bottom of the page. What happened?” Usually, these types of layout issues are caused by improperly formatted HTML within a recently published post. It can be tricky to locate the culprit, especially if you don’t have much experience with HTML.
If you haven’t heard of HTML or CSS before, here’s the run down: HTML is a markup language that essentially tells your internet browser how to display your webpage. This includes formatting the text on your page to inserting images. CSS is a styling language that allows you to change the look of your HTML. For example, with CSS, you can tell the internet browser to display all items marked in italics in the color blue and center-aligned. It also allows you to do more fancy formatting with your site, including laying out your actual webpage with sidebars, footers, and so on.
