The Homepage Offer
If I know you in person or follow you on Twitter I will help you set up a personal website for free. Contact me and we can work out the details.
This is what I can do:
- set up a domain name
- help you pick a template suited to your needs
- configure email with your domain
- teach you how to update and modify your site
- explain how site costs work
This is what I cannot do:
- be prompt
- extensive visual customization
- handle frequent updates
I can't promise to support your site forever. If you need that, pay somebody. But I can get you started.
Why am I doing this? It seems like hardly a day goes by where I don't see the negative effects of an Internet that's owned by a small number of companies. I think it'd be great if everyone had their own little slice of the Web, but to be honest the barriers are still too high. I can't reasonably expect my friends to set up a site by themselves; there are too many pitfalls, too many details to learn from scratch.
But I'm used to that, so I'll do what I can to help. Mail me. Ψ
