So I want to ask an actual "beginners" question on the beginners forum.
Why do I have to set up an email?
Can't I just have any email sent to my own gmail account (without it necessarily being displayed?)
Can't a contact plugin on my blog be directed to my email account?
If I have to have a email@example.com email address, can this be directed to my gmail account?
Is there a help page somewhere that translates the entirely new vocabulary of this hosting/wordpress thing into plain descriptive english for some of us?
