Easiest way to create a blog on own webpage?

Posted 05 March 2015 - 12:10 PM

Greetings guys, I just registered and I got to say this site looks pretty amazing.

TLDR; easiest way to create a blog? embed, create; language?

Anyways, on to my question:

How can create a simple, good-looking functional blog on my own webpage?
I'm coding in Sublime Text. I'm a big fan of writing, so I'm hoping I will find a way to add this function to my page.
This is how it looks now, by the way: (Twitter is just there to test twitter widget, same with tumblr.)

Do I have to get into PHP if I want to create a blog myself?
I'm not really interested in wordpress and sites like these, cause I love doing everything from the bottom myself.
(Is there a way to embed/widget easily latest posts from a blog? Because that sounds interesting.)

Thanks in advance! :)

There goes "easiest".


In general you need to read up on how 'content management systems' work.. CMS. Mimic the DB calls and ideologies.

Hmm... It sounds like I will be in for quite a challenge then. Maybe I should just drop the blog idea on homepage.
The website will probably okay without it as well. :)

They are about as hard, or easy, as you want to make them.

You want spiffy features like wordpress/drupal/joomla? That increases complexity.
You want security? That increase complexity.
Back ups, navigable information for spiders, etc.

I'm thinking quite simple. I just want("need") a place to write, so nothing more fancy than header/text/comments/date.
I'm looking into Javascript first, as I'm following w3schools, and they say that one should complete Javascript before starting with PHP.

Ehh you don't need PHP if you just want to write. Learn HTML and CSS. Then you want to write, write it in HTML and style it yourself. There is no need for a severside language, if you want static content or want to control that content manually. Things like WordPress and other CMS just make it easy and far easier to modify, but if you want to go the long way, have at it!

I ended up looking at MySQL yesterday, and I'm continuing later today. I found it to be way harder than HTML/CSS, but also a lot fun. :)
