How to Create Your Own Website at No Cost
where: Cobourg Library Wednesday March 28th 2012  2:30PM  and 5:30PM – 2nd Floor Meeting Room

This free presentation shows how to create a professional-looking website at no out-of-pocket costs other than your time and effort.  This no cost website can advertise your business, tell  people about your community service, present your  gallery of images, or establish your credentials and interests for college/university studies. The advantage of the two systems proposed, Google’s Blogger and WordPress.com is not only are they free but they  make a)website creation and design very easy to do yet highly customizable if you so choose  and b)updating and maintaining the sites manageable by anyone with Word or email skills.

The presentation lasts about 45-50 minutes. For those looking for extra help, 1 hour is reserved in the meeting room  afterwards to answer any questions you have or to create a starter website for free. Important to note: No costs are incurred nor any future costs; however WordPress.com does provide extra cost services which you do not need to use to get advanced capabilities. Blogger has 3rd parties offering such services. But to get an effective website like JavaScriptures has incurred no costs over the past 3 years other than the time and effort to keep it updated with new pages and posts.
Note please reserve your place by sending an email here as space is limited to 6 participants per session.
