I am building my own website, not to mention that it is the first time I have done this....
Do any of you computer savvy CC'rs have any tips or advise?
i am very happy with freewebs. i am not great with building a website, and this was very easy. there are TONS of templates to choose from, to make it your own, it was quick and FREE! it might be a nice way to start out. you can always buy your own domain and still have freewebs host it for you.
I did mine through yahoo and I used yahoo site builder. I tried dreamweaver and I tried frontpage and it was too difficult for me to understand. Site builder has lots of templates..I chose one but then changed pretty much everything...I also use yahoo webhosting
