How to (and how NOT to) Start Your Own Website! - Website Promoting for ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS!
(Page 1 of 10 )
Before you read this article: I'm not an expert - this is just a short (and hopefully amusing) account of my own experiences with starting up a website!I WILL however give you some very useful links to the real experts at the end of this article BUT DON'T SKIP TO THE END JUST YET! I still have a lot of funny, insightful and useful information to give you : D
About 8 months ago I got a great idea! I'M GONNA MAKE A WEBSITE WITH FLASH GREETING CARDS THAT PEOPLE CAN SEND TO ALL THEIR FRIENDS!!! No, I did not think that I was the first person to get this idea. I'm not THAT na´ve. However I was na´ve in a lot of other ways about what it takes to build a website - but I will get to that later.
Anywho, I thought this was a great idea for ME; I love making little animations in Flash, I love thinking up little stories, I love working for myself (as opposed to working for a boss - but you can read about that on my website!), and I thought it would be really cool to have a website that people from all over the world would visit and use. WOW! Sort of my 15 minutes of fame, I guess. AND if somewhere down the line I could make just a little money on it; GREAT! And I'm not talking millionaire money, just enough to cover my expenses. Okay okay, and maybe a little bit more than that : ) Being able to afford red wine in bottles instead of cartons would be nice.
I started working on ideas (had lots of those) for ecards and then I started making the very first card (that I intended to send to my parents on their 50th wedding anniversary as a "test" to see if other people would think my cards were as funny as I did).
