I'd like to get back into managing a silly little bit of webspace for myself and my whims. I paid for a year of hosting and two domains through Dreamhost, but no real idea of how to go forward, and I don't have significant blocks of free time to really get involved all at once.
In the past, I made and updated HTML by hand, which worked, but was so far from efficient, and I'm sure my code was atrocious (for example, a year of playlists on one static page
). Can you suggest a way to get started, perhaps some tutorials with a clear series of steps that I can go through, a few every day or week? I have some free time in the evenings and weekends, but I rarely get a solid block of hours by my self.
I also have a daily commute of ~1 hour each way by train, so I can read a lot on my laptop or tablet, though internet service is only on my Droid phone.
My goals: host a blog or 3 with my photos, old recordings of my radio shows, and random blatherings, or one blog that will look different depending on the tags you view. For example, "photo" blogs will look one way, while "music" will have a different appearance, but there will be one decent over-arching appearance if you just want to chronologically browse all my blog posts.
I also have a few forgotten Blogger accounts I'd like to roll into this site and start them up again, or at least archive them on my own space.
