Websites And Where To Go For Advice
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I used to organize a skiing holiday for a large group of friends. On about the third such holiday someone said we should have a name for the group. Since my initials are DAB someone suggested Dabski and so it stuck. A couple of years later someone else suggested that we should have a Dabski web site.

A Website!!

So, when we returned home that year I set about trying to find out how to get and set up a website.. Eventually I found Network Solutions and I was able to buy dabski for some $75 per year. Then of course I had to set it up. Well in those days, 1998 actually that was no easy matter as everything had to be done in code with no easy translation. Although Network Solutions no doubt tried to be "user friendly" that was not the case. But nevertheless I struggled on and eventually the website was launched.

Times are a whole lot different now. Not only are there many more website management companies with all the different web extensions now available they are a lot less expensive. If you can be creative in your choice of name you could probably get one for about $10 per year.

Where to go Today

As well as that, software has become a lot easier to cope with. Recently I started to use WordPress which is extremely easy to use. It is part of Wealthy Affiliate and Kyle and Carson, its co-founders and co-owners have done such a good job that they claim to be able to set up a website for you in 30 seconds. I can tell you this is not an exaggeration.

The best way to approach WordPress is to join Wealthy Affiliate which to start with is free. Having said that if you want to use WordPress to manage your own websites you will have to become a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate and this will cost $47 per month - good value when you realize what you get for it.

However it's not all plain sailing. While WordPress will do all the website set up for you it won't write the content Now if you only want the website to share information then input the information and then you are up and running.

However if you want people to go to your website because you have a strong story to tell then content is the key and WordPress will not do that for you - you yourself has to be creative.

While Wealth Affiliate won't do your creative work for you it will give you much help as to how you can do it.
