HOW To create your own Website And share information EASILY And make it a big hit even a MOONLIGHTING revenue source and how to FIND THE TIME to do it.
DOWNLOAD SEA MONKEY for free, it's an HTM software webpage maker. Two tips that are not intuitive. Always hit WINDOW and then pick COMPOSER off the menu there. That's where you do writing. To SAVE an online HTM FILE, be IN YOUR SEAMONKEY on main page. HIT CONTROL U to turn that page into coding, then CONTROL S to save it. Save it as htm or html but default save later, will always be HTML. That's how SEAMONKEY wants to save it. Doesn't matter which you use.
And it's HOW TO MAKE a site WHEN YOU HAVE NO WEBSITE PUBLISHING SOFTWARE -- no time to take a class and U-need to get a business up-and-running fast? JUST USE BILL GATES BUILT IN OFFICE SUITE "WORD." Get the best version of it, 1997, from ABANDONWARE GUY, DAN THE MAN. YEP ! DAN THE MAN! I'm saying it again! FILL YOUR CACHE or C DRIVE with GOOD SOFTWARE. Every five years, I BUY a 'new' USED PC with mega software loaded in by my Calcutta PC guy. You can GET USED 'SHAREWARE' OR 'ABANDONWARE', CHEAP FROM THE FAMOUS IDAHO LIBERTERIAN BUSINESSMAN, DAN THE MAN, the PREMIER VENDOR of USED STUFF IN THE WORLD! If it didn't burn up in an ATOM BOMB TEST out of VEGAS, DAN's got a copy.
GET A WEBHOST, Some places as low as 3$ a month, buy three you get them at less than 2$ a month.WHY GMAIL AS A FREEBIE MAIL BOX WORKS (IN ANY BROWSER). MOZILLA FIREFOX HAS SPEED, REMEMBERS PASSWORDS. GET 'EM BOTH FREE! (I have only found one EMAIL CLIENT I like: the one inside my old NETSCAPE 4.7 browser, NETSCAPE MESSENGER.. It's from way back, 1995. You don't surf the web with it, as it crashes easy when it meets java or other high tech stuff but it has a superb mail client. Collating by date, name, LIST MAKING which as an astrologer I need. I hear EUDORA has that kind of a lean, mean machine mail client ....only it costs 30$ bucks. ) so UNFORT, my ole Netscape does not work on WINDOWS 8. Recently Someone gave me a PC with 8. So I have to use the GMAIL email client which leaves so much to be desired. Can't make lists in any way I could detect, intuitively. I don't do manuals.

TEN TOP MISTAKES WEB DESIGNERS MAKE
HOW TO LAUNCH A COTTAGE INDUSTRY ---Web-related RECOMMENDATIONS:
1.) GET CLIENTS by SURFING THE NET. Read the great writers, bloggers, EMAIL them, make pals. Send them samples of your stuff. Be their student. Great websites are those that belong to great teachers. FOLLOW YOUR PASSION. Google POODLES or TUSCANY. Find what you love.
2.) Subscribe to YAHOO lists that reflect your personal interests. I started with goat care, soap making, frugal housekeeping and political leftist rant. Those four. You make pals quickly. I escalated to ALIENS and MYSTIC LISTS. Participating and hurling URLS (my own among them,) gained me readership at my own websites.
3.) VISIT OTHERS! Start dropping in at blogs, writing to your new pals who quickly realize what you're interested in, write, do, share or sell & become your clients.
4.) FIND YOUR TRADE BEADS, what you can give. For me it was FREE SEMINARS, on every subject, MARRYING WELL,GARDENING, gifting garden seeds and the DAILY POWER HOURS, STARPower Map of the Month, (an E-file that arrives in your mailbox once a week. Sunday nite.) Other ideas: sharing used books.
5.) Stay in touch. For that you need a good EMAIL CLIENT, one that holds your chums' names in alphabetical order, allows you entry to sketch in bio-details on them, (sister is in prison, hubby a plumber) stuff you might otherwise forget.
6.) Build your own send-out LISTS. The GARDENER list the POLITICAL LEFTIES list. I even have a UFO list! Collect articles and send them! THAT's stayin' in touch!
7.) Compose colorful ADS and send those out to your lists occasionally.
8.) POST files that are half articles of wit and wisdom and half an advertisement for your services out in CYBER SPACE at your own WEBSITE. Then, reach out to CRAIGS LIST's immense readership. Post a BAITED HOOK to get them to visit your site, complete with live links. You will attract potential readers/ clients to your WORK.
9) Read up on the nuances of CRAIGS LIST. and USING CRAIGS ADROITLY.
WHY I DID IT all MYSELF: PRESSURE! CLOCK TICKING! The day I found out I was going to be on JUDGE JUDY, (a client sued me for web-publishing her tale of love gone sour -- I never mentioned her real name,) only mentioned her cyber monniker, FLAME! a made up name,)-- and I foresaw myself in front of ten million folks, I knew I needed a website. I was going to be on nat'l TV! I'd name drop my NEW WEBSITE's URL. So my daughter, Paloma, always a big spender, a gal who'd pay 5$ for an ice cream cone bought me a domain name, & I threw together the LUCK IN LOVE website! I just stated what was in my heart as a preamble and put a LINK to an INDEX PAGE I designed index 3. And BA BA BOOM! I was off to the races. Of course my verbal, on camera URL DROPPING was caught by Judge Judy's film editor and the LOVE GURU pitch and hustle was left on the cutting room floor. Paloma inspired me into designing her own site, (she's an NYC kiddie portrait photog) and if SHE COULD design and create a site with no help & no training, I knew I COULD!
