Building and editing my site locally

Hi all, hope this is the right sub and not too basic a question. Tried Googling this and can’t find results that match what I’m actually asking. Once I get started, how do I actually update and test my site without pushing it live? I’m looking to self host here and some years back when I set a blog up I couldn’t figure out how to manage my site and change it without pushing those changes live immediately in the live environment. If this is just a simple link to something then happy to figure things out from there. Thanks
