Can Someone (on a SKYPE call) Help Me Set Up WordPress on Digital Ocean?

Hi (to all of you out there),

Okay, Can someone take me by the hand (maybe by SKYPE) and lead me to my first WordPress blog on DigitalOcean? (Personally I’ve put up hundreds of WordPress blogs on other hosting over the years, but I’ve always had cPanel hosting accounts and a 5th grader can put up a WordPress blog using cPanel)

I do know how to read tutorials. That does NOT mean that I always understand what I read. Please, I don’t want references to tutorials. I’m looking for hands on help from someone willing to give me a half hour of their time on a SKYPE call.

I’m not real technical, so if I could get some LIVE HELP it would be appreciated. I like what DigitalOcean offers and the price is good, but all of this is new to me, so I need guidance.

If you know all that is needed to set up WordPress on my server from start to finish (from Droplet to all the needed steps to completion), then please give me a helping hand.

I hope someone answers my call.

I was told that this community is one of the best to learn from.

Sincerely, Joe
