I've created about 20 websites so far. I've
learned by trial and error what works and what doesn't and where to get
the best and cheapest things to create my sites. I created this
site for my family and friends but it's the site I wish I had found when
I was starting out. It would have saved me a lot of time and
There is no such thing as a way to get rich quick.
At least if there is I sure haven't found it. If you want to make
money on the internet it takes time and work, but it is possible. It doesn't really
take that much money once you know what you are doing, but it's the
getting to where you know what you're doing that can cost you some. Hopefully this site will save you from a lot of the mistakes I made,
from getting ripped off by buying things you don't need or from bad
places and save you time and money too.
Speaking of buying stuff, I mention some places where
you can get items to build your site and that you may find helpful. When I first put up this site I didn't list any companies but so many
people wrote in to find out who I used and recommended that it was just
easier for me to add them. These are places that I use personally
or have used and that I think are good. It doesn't matter
to me if you use them or not. Although depending on the place I
may benefit in a small way if you do, the purpose of this site isn't to
get you to buy something. It's to give you the information you need
to know to build your own site and to know what to look for and what to
look out for in choosing a company to go with. Hopefully this site
has given you the tools you need to choose the company that's best for
When I started creating a website for the first time I
knew nothing about computers except how to turn one on and how to surf
the web. I don't consider myself a techie even now but I learned
as I went.
In May, 2001 I was in a job I didn't like and was
looking around for a way to earn extra money to pay off my credit card
bills. I was surfing the net and came across an opportunity
selling products that
looked okay so I started building a website to promote it.
In June, 2001 I put the site on the internet. I
worked like a dog and put in a LOT of hours learning everything I could.
By June, 2002 I was making more on the internet than at my job so I
gave my notice and left. I'm still supporting myself entirely from
the internet. :-)
If I did it, you can too!
I wish you the very best and every success with your
new website and life!
