A Novice Constructs His "Best Seller Book" Web Page - The Process
Getting Ready for Best Seller Book!
Ignorance is Bliss and I am “happy!”
I feel like I learned how to perform “brain surgery” in one week. My brain surgery was and is my website. I had written a hub article about the process of publishing a “Best Seller Book.”
OK, my optimism showed! I have no shame. I enjoy challenging myself. Notwithstanding the challenge of obtaining the lofty goal of “Best Seller Book” status, it is achieved by many pieces of the puzzle. It is a process.
My background includes completing required coursework for a PhD in Informational Technology. This has provided an overview, but certainly not the technical skills needed to construct a viable Best Seller Website.
Use Outstanding Template – Research What is Best for YOU!
I elected to implement WordPress Theme. It would save time by not having to learn HTML. Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the basic building blocks for websites. It tells the computer what to do. Here is what it looks like: <html> <body><h1>My First Heading</h1><p>My first paragraph.</p></body></html>
Using a website template is a challenge too! The learning curve is steep. Simply putting the cursor one space off – inside, or outside quotes provides opportunities to learn why it did not work and spending hours to locate error.
Achieving working knowledge of the website template is just the beginning. What is your central theme? Colors? Fonts? I would recommend reviewing websites for top web pages to get an idea of what is desirable. An example Is: http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/0,28757,2087815,00.html
Time Magazine has published the 50 top websites by categories. Each niche has different requirements.
Given we are both hard-headed and not given to patience, we managed to produce an acceptable website. It is not perfect. It works. SEO is another challenge. The first four pages of the Google search engine are all results from my activities about my website.
Producing my book cover. There is a website where they will do almost anything you need for five dollars. http://fiverr.com Select one that has lots of 100% satisfied ratings. Stay tuned for my book cover! Remember to have ISBN! Mine is: 978-0-9846850-0- .
