well there are many ways to do it depending on how complicated you want the site to be. I do my own website design by hand. to do that, I would recommend first, reading a book on html.

Easiset and quickest: Your word processor will probably save a page of text and pics as an html file.

you can also download an existing webpage you like (its "source" file") and if it's not too complex with scripts and such, you can just insert your own pics and text.

I am not very familiar with the programs, but I know that while they are helpful they are also limiting in their pre-existing templates. there are many ways to do this -- fj

There's nothing that special about writing a web page. HTML shouldn't take you more than an hour to pick up with a decent book. Then all you really need is a text editor, such as Notepad.

Once you get into dynamic content, that gets a little more complicated, but I wouldn't even think about it until you've got a pretty good grasp on HTML and CSS. So in a few months when you've got that down, you can come back to see what people have to say about database driven websites and the pros and cons of server and client side scripting, etc.
