Welcome to the Babble!
The easiest and best supported way for a newbie to build a website is clearly with WordPress. As a CMS (content management system) it is possible to build almost any type of site. Lisa has some great information on this using WordPress as well.
For a better experience here, you may want to check out our Guidelines and Forum Help in the top horizontal menu and at least listen to the video (better to read as well). You will find some interesting tips and information that you will want to know, such as signature requirements, etc.
Glad to have you join the forum, a great place to learn and share.
