I need to be able to make my own website, or at least be able to update it. I bought Expression Web. I've bought several "dummy" books on building a website. I even downloaded CoffeeCup. I keep looking for a class at the Community College, but they all seem to be "flash", or a basic HTML class. I'm at a loss. I'm not sure which way to go.
I have a website I built using a proprietary product at GoDaddy.com. It's a website, that's about all you can say. The program worked like a graphics program and was easy to use, but limited.
I bought Expression Web and tried to build a site on rootsweb.com for my genealogy society. I used a template, thinking it would be easy. I ended up hiring someone to fix it. I couldnt' get it to upload correctly. Part of it didn't show up on the site and it "bounced".
I bought a new domain and just let the same person do my new site. Apparently, I am a pain, because she quit replying to my emails.
I asked someone what it would cost to upload an updated menu page each week and he agreed to do it for $100. a week. That's not what I call affordable.
So, at minimum, I have three sites out there that need updating. They are all very simple. They have no moving parts. However, I will need to add a "store" to my personal website this year.
I put an ad on Craig's list for someone to design a site, and had tons of offers. How do you choose? What kind of questions do you ask?
Can anyone suggest a class, or a product that is easy to use, or a book that isn't written in Greek. I don't mind hiring someone to do the initial programming, just not willing to keep paying every week to post menus.
I really hate being clueless.
Thanks, web hosting miami
