Hi there fellow bloggers, crafters, dropshippers, small business owners, and all around entrepreneurs! I wanted to make sure I had something posted on my new website to help you get on your way… Just in case I get any visitors to my site before I am able to get it all loaded up with all the important and helpful content I am working on. I don’t want to leave anyone hanging.
So, I thought the best thing I could do for all my future readers is give you a little nudge in the right direction to get you started. The first thing I wanted to let you know about is how to build your own website for free. My number one recommendation to do this is to go to an awesome website called Wealthy Affiliate. They are an online training and hosting source that allows you to start two websites for free.
I went through Wealthy Affiliate to start my first website. It is one of the best things I have ever done in my life. WA is the only thing I have ever found that actually teaches you something for free that can be completely life changing. Within literally an hour of clicking on the WA link on the right side of this screen (and maybe even faster if you already have some idea of what you want your site to be about) you can have your very own website!
It doesn’t matter if you are trying to start a business, if you just want a website for your existing business, or you just want to blog your heart out, they will walk you through the process of starting and building your site.
And let me say, if you haven’t ever had your own website (and I assume you haven’t because you are here), when you type in your web address for the first time and it takes you to something you created, to something that every piece of reflects you and something you care about and believe in…it is truly one of the most thrilling and gratifying things ever!
In the time since I built my first website I have learned so much. I really want to share it with all of you self-starters out there. I just launched this new website today, so it is still a baby and I have much to write, but as I said above I didn’t want to leave it over night without anything for potential readers to read.
But for now I must retire for the evening. I encourage you to check out Wealthy Affiliate for yourself. They don’t ask for any credit cards or anything, so you have nothing to lose. I would recommend you make sure you at least get through the first part of the training and set up your free website. It will give you a good idea of if it is something you think you can really get into or not.
I guess I should also mention that WA is a huge community (over 800,000 people world wide!) and has been in business for more than 14 years. Totally worth checking it out! I was thrilled that I stumbled upon them. I hope it helps you as much as it helped me.
And do please check back in with me here to read my future posts that will give solutions to little bumps in the road I ran into. Things that had easy solutions, but took me a minute to find the answer.
