Hello Out There,

Not sure I'm in the right place with my questions. If I'm not, please  
feel free to re-direct me. I have been looking and learning for HOURS  
on end... but could really use a personal tip from a voice of  
experience now. Can anyone give me a few suggestions? Is Wordpress.com  
the right place for me? Can you suggest a theme that will allow me  
freedom to do the things below? I want to blog (of course, MY way :).  
I don't need to advertise as I will soon have be cooperating with  
others on a separate website for sales, so was planning to use the  
Wordpress.com option.

I want to be able to do the following things:

-have up to 7 pages

-I want to post slide presentations which I have created. These slide  
presentations may contain audio, photo or video, and text. Will I be  
able to move those from my computer to my blog - or will they need to  
go to YouTube first and then be embedded? I have seen slideshare etc.  
in the Wordpress instructions- that format is much simpler than I  
need. If I do much of that, will I need to pay for a space upgrade?

-I want to have audio files easily accessible to visitors. I want to  
be able to regularly and easily change those. Can they go anywhere in  
my content?

-I want to create my own "buttons" (widgets?) and load them on to my  

-I want a clean template that I can use my own banner design on-  
customize my background, change my column width, and use lots of  
pictures of different sizes. I do not know code or html.

-Can music run continually while my blog is open (with an optional way  
for my visitors to "turn off" the music)?

Thanks so much for any help or insight you might offer,
