Once your first page is done, you may want tp create an entire website full of pages. With a little planning, developing a full site is a snap!
Make a Storyboard
|Get your paper and pencil ready... Map out the main areas of your website and plan how a visitor will access or navigate between them. A good starting point for any website is a home page that informs a visitor of the other areas of interest or pages you have to offer. Include a short list of information you plan to create and add to each of the areas. Design each page with this map in mind, including access to the starting point/homepage so your visitors can easily find their way back to where they once began.|
Create New Pages
|Every new visitor needs a simple map and instant understanding of your collection of webpages as a whole when they first stop by. A friendly welcome will encourage a longer stay and further exploration. You can link one page to another in a variety of ways. Text links are the most obvious, recognizable and informative. Graphic images can also be made clickable, so a clearly labeled button can become a consistent signpost for your visitor to find her way around your site.|
Upload the page to your Internet Service Provider (ISP)
Your web pages will probably feature graphics (some of your camera grabs) and text. Gather/group your images into a directory/folder along with any text you want to accompany it on your page. As you create your web page, the links to these will have a hierarchical sense of order that mimics the map you created in the beginning.
Once you've created and tested your page, transfer it to your Internet account (as you will with all changes to your site.) Test once more to make sure everything works as you planned. Then send email to all your friends.
