Start with a simple wiki and use Markdown and Bootstrap to create good-looking, interactive websites, easily.
The wiki advantage: no need to plan ahead or spend time designing: your website or app takes shape in real-time, as you add content or link to content not yet created. It's not a challenge to fix mistakes and add content online, as users peruse your existing content!
Add mods from the growing library, to have interactivity added to your website... blogs, posts, forums, news feeds, twitter etc.
Progress to creating a custom domain model and have your app automatically adapt.
Use markdown to create simple dynamic wikis. Include them in your website, as documentation or help pages etc.
Get your own, cloud hosted, markdown wiki.
