For my websites I use a CMS, (content management system) and Hostmonster.com for Hosting. Wordpress is great for beginners and there are others available like Drupal (3dGameMan.com is built with this).

I build my design with HTML and CSS (coding you may want to learn, free tutorials are available)

To start off with, try wordpress.com build yourself a blog and get used to the format. It's free and it's the experience that matters.

Once your ready, buy yourself a hosting package and go professional with your own .com. Don't get your own server as they cost a lot to maintain and what you want to build can easily be achieved using Hostmonster and Wordpress.org software.

I forgot to mention, PHP is the code that Wordpress is build on. Wordpress is an open-source way to manage your website's pages, blog posts, rss and more. Wordpress needs to be installed on your server and like I said before, don't buy your own, buy your web space online like Hostmonter, Bluehost etc.
