|Creating your own website can be useful for a number of purposes. Whether it's to share your expertise on a particular topic, start an online business, foster a community, or just maintain an online journal of your activities, having a website will allow you to make your content accessible from any connected computer. It can also theoretically allow you to have a larger audience for your ideas than you would ever have otherwise. If you have useful ideas or observations to share, you may be able to share them with as many as a few dozen people throughout the day, if you are lucky. With a website, you can share them with hundreds or even thousands.|
Possibly the easiest way to create your own website is to use Google Page Creator. This service, still in beta, provides intuitive interfaces for adding text, images, links, and other bits of content to a webpage hosted by Google. The web address of your page will be yourgoogleusername.googlepages.com.
Google Page Creator is a WYSIWIG web design platform, which means "What You See is What You Get" — what you create in the design interface is what your visitors will see. Google Page Creator automatically saves your website pages as you type them, so nothing of value can be lost. The whole system is so extremely simple that even those without basic computer literacy skills can probably use it.
