With a lot of help from the World Wide Web Consortium's W3Schools.com and some finesse advice in the archived fora of StackOverflow.com, I've now accomplished what I once thought was too hard for my current skills. I set up a MySQL database on my GoDaddy server space, I figured out the PHP while() loop for the blog's index page (below), and I made a form to both upload my old blog posts to the database and upload new posts and photos to the server. The process is now pretty well streamlined, and while I can still perfect it (show less entries on the first index page, create a strict single-post page, etc.), I am well on my way to some good things here. Stay tuned.
