It sounds like you are willing to figure this website thing out- that's good!
I would suggest that you take a few days and go through the last few months worth of posts on this thread. You will find links to great SEO articles for beginners. You will see how to check for duplicate content and get good picture taking advice. There have been discussions on logos and where to get one made.
Make some changes based on what you learn and then ask for a site review here. You will get lots of good feedback- I promise :-)
