    Question Need Help With html/css for a Blog website

    So I'm Currently working on a website for a friend. She is the leader for a cross motorcycle team (Team Celine mx) and asked me if i could make her a website, more specifically a Blog. she wants her own domain website because having her name (Celine) as the title for the website had already been occupied. so she chose to rather buy a Webhosting domain so she could have her own website with the url purely being just her own name (yes, pretty stupid). but she is going to pay me for making it, so that's not my concern.

    so I've made the Index with the Navigation bar, logo, wrapper, with a background. but since quite new to coding, It's very hard for me to make one of my first websites as a blog. what I need to know now is how to make sort of a pre-made setting for every blog post she makes, a css script for the variable that is what she's going to be writing into her blog. while making it easy for her to make posts. I'd like the website to be pretty similar to all of the other blogs out there. where the page has a limit for how many posts that are allowed go into every page, and that it automatically can make a new page when one is filled. Id also like every post she publishes to have a thread where the reader can be directed to a new page where the whole post can be seen with all the pictures the wants to post in addition to the text beside the post. I'd also like to know how to make all the pictures the has posted in to one "picture" folder on the nav bar.

    this is very hard for me, so if i could get any pure advice or some link to a tutorial on how to make this kind of website, then that would be great!

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd suggest installing Wordpress on the server - this will give all you're looking for (and much more if you need it) without the need to write it all from scratch, particularly if you are still learning. It's quite possible the host has a 'one-click' install for Wordpress, in which case you can be up and running and adding content in minutes.
    Use the W3C HTML Validator and CSS Validator to check your code and Firebug to see what css is applied to an element
    Read Steve Krug's book Don't Make Me Think - essential reading on web usability
    I don't recommend much, but I do recommend Clook for UK web hosting
