I am such a clueless newbie

One thing that I have trouble getting used to as a new mom is that I don’t have much time to really sit down and study something to learn it. There are so many things about blogging that I don’t understand and don’t have time to learn. Right now, I’m wanting to add some widgets to my site. But on the widget sites, they offer up the html code for you to cut and paste. When I try to add widgets here, the boxes seem to only accept a web address — no code. I am sure there is some easy way to put in all the widgets I want and I just can’t figure it out.

I also got a BlogHer account and I really want to get to know how to use that so I can get good tips and get more traffic for this site. I am just so insanely clueless and I can only work in a few minutes between feedings and naps to spend learning.
