I became interested in doing a web page when some of our neighborhood kids were doing
web pages. I didn't like the kids knowing more than myself. So, I started my

I am self taught in working with html with no formal classes. I first started writing my html using GeoCities tools and windows notepad. I also read the very useful tutorials from GeoCities. I soon learned about WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors and downloaded several trial versions. I finally spent my money on Micro Soft Front Page. This is a good medium price WYSIWYG editor. I think you could get by with the WYSIWYG editor that comes with Internet Explorer 5 (Front Page Explorer) or Netscape which also has a WYSIWYG editor.

I think you would enjoy doing a Web Page and it is not that hard. Remember one thing, keep it simple. You will also need a Photo editor. This will help reduce your photo bit size down so your pages will load faster. I think there are several sites on the internet that will analyze your site and reduce your photos down for you. This may help you until you get an editor. I myself do not like these online editors, but you can't beat the price (free).
GeoCities is one of the better free web page posting sites on the Internet. Sign on up and get your feet wet. I think you will have a lot of fun. GeoCities tries to make your first time experience as easy as possible. Once you get on to the Internet, please let me know, I would like to see your site. I used GeoCities free web site until a few months ago when I signed up for GeoPlus and I now have a domain name.
