I would suggest that you start with the end result in mind FIRST. What are you trying to achieve with your website?
Do you want to showcase your hobby?
Make money with it?
Be a pro in web design?
After that you can then decide to either build an ie html website or use, as suggest above, a system like wordpress.
This first step is crucial, because building a professional looking html website customers and searchengines alike would love requires, in my humble opinion, years to master if you are not a coding wizard with sharp eyes for design aspects.
Or on the other hand, people like me, and I guess most members here, use wordpress to build and customize websites. Our goal is mostly to make money online by providing unique, high value SEO optimized content. This alone usually requires a lot of ressources like time and money since we must also promote these wordpress-based sites using SEO,PPC and so on.
I hope this information is helpful.
