F.A.Q.'s

 

How did you get started with your site?
Our site started in July 2000  during school holidays, I did some web pages using Microsoft Home Publishing and Mum filled in some boxes to upload it to the internet but it didn’t work, that was the first attempt.

 

The second attempt was on MSN Communities, but you have to build your website online. You can click here for www.msn.co.uk and click on the link for MSN communities and you can make your own website straight away!

My Mum has a friend called Keith (he does a website for grandparents - www.silverhairs.co.uk and so Mum looked at his website on how to do your own website and register the domain name (that’s the website address) the name was free but you need some software to upload any new web pages on to the website so that was the third attempt.

Is there a lot of work involved in updating the website?

Yes, but since this website started nearly eight years ago, the site has grown to around 200 pages.  My mum , who does all the “technical design stuff” for the website has done web design courses and now does all the work and updates on the site.

PUBLICITY
