How to build a website for beginners
A while back, I did not know how to build a website, so the title of this post could have applied to me back then. 🙂 🙂
Now that I have experienced building websites, like this one, I wanted to let you know that the process these days is now much easier than it used to be. At least if you use the great online resources, available at Wealthy Affiliate.
They have put together a starter package, which gives you the opportunity to follow online training video presentations showing step by step how the presenter builds a website. The presenter in about 30 seconds, can create a website with the ‘bare bones’ operational on the internet and available over the internet.
This website for instance, is developed using the world famous WordPress Content Management System, and there are many different themes available. In WordPress speak, the theme is the look and feel of the website. The content itself is stored in an internal database, which I as a user, do not have to be concerned about. The content, on webpages is the actual information. If a ‘better’ WordPress theme becomes available, I can test it out on a test site and if I like it, I can install and implement that WordPress theme on this website very quickly.
At the time of writing this post, I am using the “Twenty Sixteen” theme with some changes. This theme is great for phones, tablets and desktops. It is a theme that I think looks good, and is a ‘fresh’ clean theme. There are I believe over 30,000 themes available within WordPress, and everyone has their favourites which may change over time.
I have changed my WordPress theme a few times now, and the ‘raw content’ of my posts and pages is still there, it is the look and feel of the website that changes when a WordPress theme is changed. So no major rewrite. Happy days. 🙂
Using WordPress gives me a lot of freedom, I can focus on the ‘raw content’ of my articles, rather than on how it looks on the different devices that my content will be viewed on – desktops, tablets and smart phones. My WordPress theme takes care of presenting that content for me, so that I can focus on the content.
