Like you, I had ideas that required websites or blogs. Money was tight, and I was happy to learn how much could be accomplished for free. Most people don't need to hire professional web-designers to create basic websites that accomplish their needs. It's easy to make your own website and/or blog for free. You can have both of them with no monthly hosting fees. This book walks you through it.
My guides are packed with no-cost methods, free software and online tips to help you make sites and blogs, rise on Google rankings and sell products too, if that's of interest.
Everything you need is in this book, How to Make Your Own Free Website: And Your Free Blog Too.
