There are few things you get started with:
[li]Have you installed WAMP or XAMP depend on what kind of Operating system you use on your computer/laptop.[/li]
[li]Have your own HTML editor software installed on your computer/laptop.[/li]
[li]Have registered your own domain name that goes with web hosting service you selected the basic web host package[/li]
[li]Be sure web hosting service includes PHP/MySQL installed on their server[/li]
[li]Study on FREE Nairaland tutorial: Designing A Website for Beginners that is found at http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-17942.0.html [/li]
[li]Once you have GREAT CONFIDENCE understanding the HTML, CSS, web design concepts, then you are ready rolling up your long shirt sleeves starting to build your own three-column tier web page to be uploaded to your web hosting server. You already have your own FTP username/password from domain registrar to be accessed it. [/li]
[li]Once your web page is ready for obtaining all your registered RSS API/scripts from chick.com, cnn.com to be inserted for your blank left-column or right-column web contents. [/li]
[li]It take time for you to learn everything about web designing as your PASSIONATE in order to be able to update yoour web page at your own without hiring the web designer to do the job for you. [/li]
It took me learning all of this starting from high school and college plus college career development with 15 years working experiences in 20 years ago in order to get started my own home-based web designing business in 2000. (8 years ago).
If you cannot do it, then THAT IS YOUR LAST RESORT, hiring an experienced web designer to do the job what you want.

@Poster, you did not mention the language you are using for this and when people say SCRIPT, I always wonder if they mean a programming language or something else.
Anyway, should you decide to use .NET, I have the code below I wrote a while back to use for displaying Data from Flickr on a project, I had to dig this out of my archives and did not test it before posting but this is what you usually need to do should you want to get data from another site.
To display the information, you can have different columns on your site linked to update every now and then, from the external site by using something like Ajax. and it will do it automatically based on some timer you have set to control the process. Check the code below for more info
