    Default Help. How do I creat a website

    Okay, so I have been just googling how to create my own website. WOW. Information overload. I am going to text a nephew, but while waiting on that response, thougt I would check in here.

    What I want is to have my own website for things about me. Something my family and maybe a couple friends can read, look at etc. to see what is going on here in my life with me and my kids.

    At this time I do not have an interest in a website that a hundreds would look at or that I would need a ton of ads and such.

    Any thoughts, suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

    What about starting a blog? You can add to it on a daily basis and let your friends know the way to view it.

    Do you have a FaceBook page? People can see you there and you can limit who can see your page.

    I have facebook, but do not spend a lot of time there. I just keep up a bit with what is going on with the family. But mostly I get that gossip from my older girls who keep in touch with their cousins or by talking to my sister

    I think I want something similar to what Preeti has about her quilting and such and I want to add in a bit of other life going ons. A blog will probably be perfect.

    Back in the late 90's till the mid 2000's I did websites using the old html codes and I loved doing that. I use to host a server for other peoples sites at the time too. Now everything seems to be blogs and word press. Frankly I found it more difficult. There is definitely a learning curve. I currently have a few sites on a large server and it only costs me about $12.50 a month. The service includes a lot of helpful programs you can download and one of them is for making websites. It includes tutorials (both written and video) so I'd think you could make a simple site using one of those programs. They usually also include a boiler plate format where you can just type in the info you want, save it and upload it to the server. I repeat though....there is a learning curve. :-)

    I'm not really good with making websites, but I made my own blog using Blogspot and found it pretty easy.
    Of course it's not fancy because so far I'm more interested in upload stuff weekly than anything else but hopefully I'll learn about making it prettier as well.
    You should try it

    I have a great website tool that I use. If you decide to go that way instead of a blog, PM me and I can share it with you. It's really intuitive!
