As Robert said about cooling. Stay away from Lagers until you get some experience and most important heating and cooling for lager fermentation. Lagers require a diacetyl rest where you usually need heating in addition to cooling.
A Blonde Ale was actually my very first brew. I recommend getting an Ale extract kit that has some steeping grains to get your feet wet with some actual grains, and how to use brew bags. Then it's an easy step to all grain Brew In A Bag.
There's a lot of great books on how to get started. John Palmers How to Brew, is one of the best for a good over view for the nivice and reference for the advanced brewer a like.
