Website Design Guidance for a Beginner: I'm wanting to create a personal/professional website. The core of this website will contain a personal bio, extended resume, blog on a limited number of topics that interest me, and a few pictures. What route should I take to do this? (more info inside).

The thought of web design interests me but I don't want to get in too far over my head to where I will lose interest.
I've asked several people I work with about the best route to take. One person told me to start by learning HTML & CSS, another told me to start with Dreamweaver, and a third told me to begin with Wordpress.
I would like to be able to get a decent page up within 2 weeks - 2 months. I purchased a domain at hostgator.com and a year long subscription. I still have a 44 day trial period where I can cancel this if needed.
Basically, I'm wanting a page where I can have a public/professional image. I want to be able to link it to my resume. If I send out a short resume I want to link this website so people can learn more about me without going to my Facebook page where they might find some "unprofessional" content.
I want a good foundation to start with where I can get things going fairly quickly without studying programming languages for months.
Help! Thank you.
