There is no such thing a "crossfit strength routines" there are other programs which follow crossfit or similar methodology, or work well in complement to crossfit style workouts. 70s big is just one of those programs, there is no explanation required for it, if you've seen the program you know it is several strength days with a couple conditioning workouts allowed during the week, you could do a metcon (anything for time) or come up with your own workout.

Would following the websites WOD's be a good way to start getting acqainted?
Yes following or any affiliate website programming would be a good way to get familiar with the style, type of workout, and movements used typically - whether that will help you reach your training goals is totally dependent on where you are now and what you are trying to achieve. CF.Com is certainly not the best program for every person's goals.

Typically as someone new to CF, you wouldn't want to program your own workouts.
