In the "good old days", websites were left to the computer programmers. There are many free online programs now which are "click and drag"/user friendly such as Weebly. They offer free accounts and a very reasonable Pro account upgrade which allows you to use the more advanced features. What is wonderful is more than one person can be the administrator. This has two advantages:
1. Website committee team members can work independently on a common project, regardless of their location.
2. Those new to website production may work remotely with mentors to learn the site.
Additionally, Weebly offers great video tutorials like the one on this page, to help you learn.
As you prepare for this great adventure, I recommend you:
1. Visit other sites of common interest and make notes of the features/pages you like.
2. Solicit a mentor and allow them to have administrator access to your site to be able to support you and provide you with feedback.
3. Smile! This is a wonderful adventure. The world will soon know how wonderful you are. Enjoy the journey!
What about those photos??????
Photos can accumulate in a hurry. Save a little here and there and all of a sudden, you've got photo gaggle! I recommend you use the free online services of photo sharing sites such as Flickr or GoogleDrive to store your photos. This way, they are always at your fingertips - in the "Cloud" - no matter where you are. Thing ahead and set up folders for your photo files. You might file them by year, by topic. Photos with a minimum of 300dpi work best online. Below that number, they are too grainy.
