You are more than welcome!
I also use self-hosted Wordpress on GoDaddy. Very customizable. I love both and have used both for more years than I can remember at this point. If you need help, let me know!
Q#2: I believe my blog is self-hosted...I'm not really a techie (obviously). www.craftytam.com
Thank you for your help!
I'd suggest doing them as a widget. It's what we use for the GS blog (and what I use for things like that on my blog). Then you only have to code them once, and they'll work with any theme.
