If you need a site 'just because', don't know how to do it and don't wanna hire a professional you could:
Google around for some cheap hosting, with a friendly CP allowing for some '1-click CMS (Wordpress, etc.) install'
Without too much effort you should be able to work out how to manage the basic bits of your site, get some theme, plugins, etc.
Voila - with a bit of luck you'll have some sort of site, with some sort functionality, without getting into webdev. Is this what you're after though? Cause results may vary
