You don't need fancy equipment Hobbyman, a smartphone is quite good enough for posting on the Forum. In fact most cameras now have far more megapixels than people will ever need. The average computer screen only has the resolution of about a 4 megapixel camera, so a 4 megapixel image is all you will get on screen, whether from a smartphone, 8 megapixel compact camera, or a 36 megapixel pro camera. Most digital projectors used in camera clubs to display images on a projection screen for competitions only have a resolution of around 2 megapixels or under, so what's the point of 36 megapixel pro cameras in that case? The only need for high megapixel cameras is if you are making house door sized prints. Most of our present cameras or smartphones have far more megapixels than needed for web use.

All my pictures are taken with a now old 10 megapixel Nikon D200. This originally sold for £1200 body only ($1472) and pristine examples can now be picked up secondhand on EBAY for £110-£130 ($135-$159) less than most secondhand smartphones on EBAY. This image is from it, but you are still seeing only around a 4 megapixel image on your computer screen.
It has never been lack of expensive equipment that determined the quality of photographs ever since the Box Brownie days. It is usually techniques such as how to light the image, even if using daylight, and staging the image rather than just pointing a camera at a subject in situ without thinking about these things and hoping you will get exactly what your eye sees. Now with digital, since they don't have to buy film and pay for developing anymore, people have got into the "motordrive mentality" these days so just point the camera at a subject and blaze away hoping one frame will be OK. I seldom take more than 4-5 single shots of any subject, since if I can't get a reasonable image on one of those I have not been paying attention to staging the subject. In fact since I bought my camera I have never used the motordrive at all and I usually manual focus on the viewfinder screen rather than use autofocus.
Have a go with your smartphone or compact camera, you have nothing to loose. You can produce just as good an image on screen as if you had the latest 36 Megapixel Pro camera. Never blame your photography on the equipment, most of our cameras and smartphones are far better than we are and these days and most of the process is now automated anyway compared to the film and separate light meter days.
