I've been interested in starting my own personal website...and I have very little experience with html... I'm so lost and do not know where to start ...can anyone help with a layout ?
What about installing a Wordpress blog?
Pretty easy to create templates for them. With stuff like Joomla and Wordpress there is really little need to create a site from scratch anymore.
Or the MeidaWiki one-click install?
[color=#CC0000]Get $50 off[/color] with promo code "LESS"! See here what else you get!
Or if youre more interested in a simple website, that you designed, check out NVU - it's a free WYSIWYG editor, basically similiar to Frontpage or Dreamweaver. Very simply to use. Might work out well for you.
A really great place to get started with learning more html is lissaexplains.com.
If you really want to start out: www.htmlgoodies.com
Else just use some blog site or one click install to do "quick" installs of currently functioning packages.
