How To Build Websites
The world has seen a lot of technological changes and so, things have become much more user-friendly in the world of technology. In times past, we had a ‘big box’ which we called a computer; today, we have tiny hand-held gadgets going by the same name – what an accomplishment!
Years ago, no one knew what the ‘internet’ meant, and we were all petrified of all things new…change was scary…and maybe for some, still is. Back then, you needed a software technician or computer programmer to be able to build a website…and that did not come cheap by any means!
Well, I am here to tell you that times continue to change and even YOU and I can build a website! After all, if I can do it, YesUcanDOit! You can build a website in as few as minutes. There are many platforms to choose from, however, my platform of choice is Wealthy Affiliate.

At Wealthy Affiliate, there is a cornucopia of information to get you started: the ability to do so within minutes!
How to create a website in seconds
Before one gets started with creating a website, there are a few things to be considered, once the adrenalin has died down. Here are some basics which will help you to create a wonderful site for people to visit:
- speed and load time -this is usually dictated by the theme you choose and the ‘bells and whistles’ which you choose to add
- professional design and feel to the site
- ease of navigation
- using a CMS (content management system)
- valuable content – this is where you engage your visitors
Creating a website with these basics in mind will only reward you with a successful website. To move on to the next step, I recommend WordPress. I can think of a few good points in using WordPress as platform for your website:
- it is very easy to install and set-up (at your fingertips being a Wealthy Affiliate member)
