In 2011, at Blogger.com, I created two blogs: a personal, non-public personal diary and a public-facing blog for A Better Computer, Inc.
In 2015 I revisited the ABCInc blog, and began writing about my wordpress experiences.
I set up abcinc.pw shortcut to use on the internet, and then I learned how to:
- Establish privacy settings, such as requiring all comments to be moderated
- Use the tools to write articles (looks a lot like Word)
- Use other settings, too, such as changing the favicon
- Select/Change templates
- Add widgets (e.g. contact form and links)
For this new blog, that you're reading now, I learned to configure a sub-domain for jaggers.pw: http://webtools.abcinc.pw
It's a pretty site, and my only cost in the future will be to renew the domain.
I can help you do this for yourself!
Finally, in 2016, I moved a website that I had written in HTML and had uploaded to a hosted site. I used articles to present text, and discovered I could use a widget to add a column of pictures. There's a contact form, so I no longer have to publish my email address on the internet!
[End Note: You're welcome to visit the old html site I had uploaded in 2016 at http://BarbaraLouHolcomb.name to look at the possibilities for your own web presence - and to read about a special person in my life.]
There are lots of free tutorials on youtube! Here's one by Kisha Jaggers (no relation) that I thought was pretty good.
