Between the present and a Vingian singularity there comes an era where eveyrone is computer illiterate. I'm an early adopter.

I want to set up a personal web space - a blog, some articles and vanity e-mail address type of affair. Unfortunately, I've spent too long using software instead of making it and all my web design and programming knowledge is a hopelessly outdated. What does a person need to know these days if they want to register a domain and set up a not overly complex web page and blog with a service provider who is slightly more scrupulous than the average Batman villain?

It's not that I'm computer illiterate or anything. There was a time when I could put together simple functions in assembly, build a pretty decent page and I'm currently teaching myself R. Unfortunately, the web based resources I'm finding make it sound like I've got to know twenty or thirty scripting languages and markup protocols; are the same old religious wars; or feel like the computer tutorial equivalent of this skateboarding video
except for the meant to be funny part.
Can someone direct me to a current, low BS guide to setting up a web page / blog and a non-sociopathic hosting service? Thanks.
