My Website At Last! The Essential Guidebook To Basic Web Design Unleashing Your Creativity At No Costs
I want to set up and launch my own website. I want to show the world what I can do. But I'm not an expert in web design. I need a simple guidebook to show me the way: how to obtain web space, how to format a web page with text, pictures and videos in it, how to upload it to the web. That's "My website at last": a one-stop-shop ebook explaining to you all you need to know. More
«I wish to set up my own website, my own way. I'd like to invest no money at all. Where can I start from? And how can I do that?»
This ebook provides an answer to all these questions.
We are not going to use neither Office Word nor WordPress, not even specialised sites such as "1and1": our website shall be precisely as we imagine it, without using "templates" and with no locked graphical solutions. Text blocks and images shall be placed just where we wish them to be, not courtesy of the tool we make use of. Because this is our site and we want to create it the way we like it.
In addition, we wish to introduce changes in our website, when and where we want to. We want to be given a full "hand-on" capability, in total freedom and without asking for permission to anybody.
We want our site to be properly rendered on a PC, on a smartphone, and on any other handheld device like a tablet. And we want to be in full control as to what to render, and how.
Finally, we want to spend no money. In fact our site is just the very beginning of a personal journey across the web: if revealing itself a success, then - and then only - we will invest our money in it.
«Yet I definitely am not a computer nerd! How can I achieve all that?»
Sure you can! We will achieve that together with a step-by-step approach, keeping the tech jargon to a minimum and sticking to the essential, with extensive use of "cut and paste" operations from this guidebook.
So, no programming classes: by cutting and pasting code chunks, everybody will be able to build up their own site, right now and with no need for further insight, by simply learning how to place text blocks and pictures where it is required within the web page.
All the examples and methods presented in this ebook are easily replicated at will: you will be able to customise all the available code chunks to create your own site, with your graphical settings, your preferred images and your edited text: you will just have to change the instance code provided in the ebook, pasting it where you wish, and you will achieve all your goals!
So let's start creating together our own website!
