Rick,

I would give you a couple of pieces of advice on this. First, keep it simple. At lease from the start. Make a blog that allows for posts and comments. Shouldn't be to crazy, I am pretty sure some good examples can be found.

Second, pick a good tech stack. Maybe use this project to branch out. I would definitely encourage you to implement this using modern web standards (i.e. javascript, css, etc..) and probably would say server side, use FubuMVC or Asp.Net MVC to build out your routes and views. With either one of those frameworks there is samples available to get database connectivity through an ORM.

Good luck in your endeavor!
