Wordress is a very powerful and yet user-friendly tool. Your site is set up (depending on your level of computer knowledge) so that you cannot ‘break’ it. Feel free to experiment within the ‘add post/page’ areas. Click all the different buttons to see what they do, change the template of the page. The worse that is going to happen, you will mess up an entry that is easily fixed and unless you already have subscribers that will receive the messed up post, it isn’t a big deal at all. You can always ‘Preview’ a post before it actually goes live.
If you have never used WordPress before it can seem a little daunting, although once you get your head around it, it truly is a wonderful tool.
