I would recommend WordPress.

It is free and has many free variations online.

If you Google WordPress themes, you will find a bunch of possible
ways it can be configured. There are also other sites for WordPress
that enables you to pay $100 or less to get something fancier, for
example with moving photos.  There are many, many free
configurations online.

You can also try googling WordPress themes magazines.

The instructions are online, but I have not really studied them yet,
although I have taken WordPress classes here at Columbia, where, it
seems, most classes have switched to it.
