Making A Free Website
Nowadays, it is very simple to create a website using a free service. Many companies offer this service, which makes it easy for anyone to make a website of their own. Simply choose a service like Google or Bravenet and create an account. Once your account has been established, you will be able to make a sub domain (basically a site within a site) from that company's main site. A website can be about whatever you want it to be. You can create a personal page to tell others about yourself, make a family site to keep your relatives up to date on the latest events, or dedicate it to something you enjoy. I have a website through Bravenet that I use to write about classic video games (It can be found at phoenixcreations2003.bravehost.com. It may give a better idea about what can be done with a free website). You could write about whatever topic you desire. If you enjoy sports, you could make a website dedicated to your favorite sports teams, or offer information on the sport itself.
For those who aren't trained in html code (myself included), many of the companies offer web tools that can help construct a site without learning code. The web tools aren't very difficult to use, and offer a variety of options for designing your site. For those who wish to establish "dot com" websites, many of these same companies offer upgraded sites for a monthly or annual fee. These sites have much more space, and offer a personalized url. Happy site building!
