Create Your Own Website - Free!

Guess what!  I have just created my own – extremely cool – website in under ten minutes.  Plus (possibly the best thing too) it was all free.  If you would like to create a free website  then take it from me – the process is really straightforward.  I am about as technical as a frog so if I can do it then so can you.

Of course I had some help and that is where came in.  Once you sign up as a member (which again is free and is quick and easy, no checking your email for confirmation links, you just choose a name, a password and away you go) you can choose from hundreds of templates that are already stored on the site or you can adapt them to create your own.

For non technical people like me there is a step by step help system which you can open in a new window and follow until you are more confident.  The system is very straightforward and I found that I had created a home page within ten minutes.  Plus it had the features you might expect or want already set up, such as a guestbook and a contact list.

All in all, this was an enjoyable experience (something which I thought I would never say when it came to building websites, something I usually leave to others).  I didn’t need to know flash or HTML – or anything like that at all.  A few simple steps and there it was!  Why not try it out for yourself?
