Latest Activity: Aug 5, 2014
Learn how to design a website that will be attractive and effective. Topics include domain names, purpose of your website, website design concepts, hosting options, search engine rankings, and inexpensive (or free) site-building software. We will explore options for creating and maintaining your own website without knowing any programming language. Using the types of template-based programs and reliable but inexpensive hosts we will discuss, the cost of your site can range from $0 to about $10 per month. If you decide to have someone build your site for you, this workshop will prepare you to talk knowledgeably with that person about what you want.
Nonfiction author Loretta Hall maintains four websites that she built using template-based software. One of them, SubsurfaceBuildings.com, has won several awards and is the top search engine result for “underground buildings.” The others are NMSpaceHistory.com, SpacePioneerWords.com, AuthorHall.com. As the author of six nonfiction books, Loretta’s passion is explaining technical concepts to non-technical people.
