Setup a blog

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have never touched this area before so I am going into this blind. Any ideas on where to start would be great. I do know the basics in design such as HTML, CSS, and learning Javascript, Sql and PHP. I do have the hosting provider in mind. But as far as what type of coding style or ideas i am lost. Yes i will be googling blogs but i thought id ask too.

Edit:
I guess i will be picking up wordpress, lol

Hey good luck with your blog, maybe if you told us what the blog would be oriented towards in terms of content maybe we could suggest something? Something i can lend, while doing an internship at an advertising agency that things are going super minimalist.

Not that you have to conform, but perhaps a simple, classy and elegant UI would do? A beige background or a cream-tone, something subtle maybe; with white buttons and menu bar, or something dark grey.

If you're going technology, perhaps play around with grey, dark grey, and yellow. These colors greatly complement each other, and have a reserved intellectual look.

In terms of coding i would go with HTML5 + javascript. You can even look into node.js a powerful new scripting platform. Javascript is now quickly becoming the industry standard just because it meshes so well with HTML 5.


Just my two cents, nothing detailed.
Good luck

you should have access to the html of the page, and since javascript is executed client side, i dont see why not. You should look into the new HTML 5 features such as placeholders(stuff which you could only previously do using java).

i do not want to touch html 5 because the lack of support it provides through all browsers. Everything 5 offers can be achieved with a little more work.

Fair enough, your javascript is universally supported today as its one of the fastest growing languages out there. JavaScript is run inline and is thus much faster than compiled java servlets. Hope it appeals to you.

Surely for a blog most of the code will be server side stuff to store and retrieve the info.
You wouldn't need that much javascript at all, in fact you could do it without any.
