Also I am looking to accomplish 2 major objectives...
1) main blog page
2) Photo Gallery
These are to start, not sure what else I may. Does anyone have any decent references on where to start? Looked around on the intarwebs but didn't have exactly what I was looking for. The hosting platform is linux with MySQL databases (so I suppose LAMP).
Thanks for any assistance, also the i am hoping to get my coding skills up to speed by doing this. I like to learn by having some sort of tangible goal.
