hey hey friendsie! Welcome back to my little corner of the Internet!! Today I’m spilling all about having a website, and why you should start one too! YES, YOU!!! Because it’s absolutely possible and you absolutely can!
REASON #1: You have something special to share. 😉
Because there is plenty of ugliness and darkness out there, so WHY NOT SPREAD SOME LIGHT?! The thing is, you have something so beautiful and special to share with the world that NOBODY else has. That’s right. YOU. People should hear what YOU have to share.
REASON #2: It’s SO. MUCH. FUN.
Creating a website takes quite a bit of work, but it is SO. MUCH. FUN. I had a blast browsing templates, designing a ton of different logos until I got the perfect one, and critiquing my home page until I found just the perfect fit for ME.
And I’m still having a blast, folks. I still get to brainstorm posts and design blog images and craft fun snippets and spill my thoughts coherently (well, sometimes anyway) into a blog post format. Do it, y’all.
REASON #3: IT’S FREE
Starting a blog/ portfolio website/ photography display/ biz/ magazine/ whatever you want to share on the Internet CAN be free. You could literally go to Wix or Weebly or WordPress RIGHT NOW, tinker around a little with some templates you like, and PUBLISH YOUR OWN WEBSITE!!! 😱 FOR FREE!!!
Now, if you want to have your OWN domain name or professional help setting up your website, it’s going to cost you a little more. But for the longest time I was using a free domain provided by WordPress or Weebly or Wix or whichever one I felt like using at the time. I had a decent looking, fun place to share my stuff, and it DIDN’T COST ME ANYTHING.
Now, it’s still super inexpensive because I’m using a domain name from GoDaddy. So yeah. Free, fun, and super special. What else could you ask for??
REASON #4: Share your faith, business, or WHATEVER you want to promote.
So, if you have something you’re super excited about that you want to share, THIS is how you can do it!! on the Internet for the WHOLE WORLD to see!
And it’s all yours. You can talk about whatever you want to talk about and design it HOWEVER you want, and you have complete control over what you’re building!!!!
REASON #5: NO COMMITMENT.
You can back out at any time, no questions asked. Well, people may ask questions….. but yeah. You don’t have to spend any money, the only thing you have to spend is time. If you like it, you can spend more time and possibly money on it, but if you don’t, NO HARM DONE!!
Oh, and one more reason. NO CODING SKILLS NEEDED.
I’ll be honest, I’m SOOO not the coder in the family. It is so far from my thing, it’s insane. I created this website with absolutely zero coding skills, because that’s just how cool our technology is these days. Not a tech genius? No worries.
So what are you waiting for?? It’s so much fun, a super cool outlet that you have COMPLETE CONTROL over, and it’s totally FREE!!!
If you’re trying to decide whether you want a website or not, let me be the one to tell you to GO FOR IT!! Do whatever God wants, of course, but if you feel this is where He’s guiding you, jump right in!! I’ll be here if you have any questions or need any help 😉
GO START A WEBSITE, FRIENDSIE!
