How to make my own website for free ~ is that possible?

1024px-Internet1The question how to make my own website for free, is the very question that has caused me to be writing this article today. That question put me on a journey, which seems kind of odd when I think about it. Like how do I get from that thought to an actual website? For quite some time I wanted to create my own website about juicing, that it is —–> juicenjoy.com

BUT how did I do it, could I do it for free, or at least a reasonable cost? What about all of the technical mumbo jumbo, etc etc. Lots of good reasons not to do it. So was it free? for real!!?? What follows is the complete story. While it was relatively easy… it did take some work and some learning. I was a complete novice when I started down this road.

First, the background:

I stumbled upon the community called Wealthy Affiliate They mentioned a free website in an article I was reading, about,… wait for it,… free websites. 🙂 At the time that was all I was interested in. I wanted to create a website that allowed me to share my experience about juicing, and hopefully reenergize myself to get going again, and to help others with the same. Free Website Its simple to set up and it really is free! It will stay free as long as you like. This is exactly where I started. I started with allthingsjuicing.siterubix.com. Which I had for about two months before converting to my own domain juicenjoy.com

I just wanted to write about juicing

juicing-300x300At first all I wanted was to write about juicing, and so on, but as I got going I discovered that not only could I write about my passion, I could make money doing it! That was when I converted to my own domain. My own domain name cost $10.98 for a year btw…

That covers the free part, and how I started. I know what, at least a good portion of you are thinking right now!, cuz I thought the same thing!! I cant do this, I don’t know anything about building a website. I don’t write well, what I want to write about isn’t interesting to others… etc etc. I can hear my own voice in those thoughts, those were some of my own thoughts before I started. I have good news.

You don’t have to know how to build a website.

With your free account and website you get the first 10 lessons free, that walks you thru all of the basics, you also have my support and the support of hundreds who have done the same thing. If this is your concern like it was mine lets move on to the next objection because trust me this is not an issue. Yes you have to learn stuff but its easy!!

You don’t write well?

writingNext you are thinking, I don’t write well! Well neither do/did I, however I do enjoy it. I am certain you will find some errors in this post. However; the key is writing about something you love, it is so fun! When I first started it was a little difficult to write much, in fact if you got to my site today, you can see the vast improvement over the last few months. When I first started I wrote a fairly small article on a topic I thought interesting. If there was something I didn’t know about id do some research as well. Btw, when you love what you are writing about, you love doing the research as well, its truly a win-win. In the end, yes you end up proofing your work a few times but it gets easier and easier, plus you will have a community that will help you with ideas and even some proof reading!

One of the last things I want to share with you is the consideration about what to make a website about. Many people I have meet while on this journey had no idea, some like me had a passion. This is very important to consider. You want a website that you are passionate about, it doesn’t matter what the topic is. There is something like 2 billion people who are online, your interest, however odd or uninteresting you might think it is to others, it is shared by millions. Millions of people who will get excited about what you like, what you have learned, and experienced.

If you just have some questions or comments feel free to leave them below, or maybe even some suggestions on grammar, or my writing skills. 😉 Im interested in what you think, or any questions you might have.

  1. Vic,

    I appreciate your honesty! I am horrible at writing, but can talk and think about what I have passion for. I find that writing something you are passionate for is just as easy. I think I might be ready to jump of the bridge and check out Wealthy Affiliates. You make it seem like anyone can do it.

    Thank you,

    Adam

    • Hi Adam, I really think with a little patience any one could do it. I am not just saying that. Some may struggle a bit but there is lots of help to be had. Thanks for stopping by, feel free to ask any questions you have as you check it out.

  2. Hi Vic,

    I think that regardless of whether or not you are good at writing, people will still want to read what you write if they can tell you’re passionate about the topic at hand. Someone could have perfect spelling and grammar, but if their content is dull and uninspiring, they won’t attract readers. Best of luck to you with your site!

  3. Hi!
    My first fear when I joined WA, was the fact that I can’t write, but now I have 2 websites indexed by Google with more than 12.000 words 🙂 .
    So, anyone can overpass this fear, it’s a matter of will.
    Thanks for this post and I wish you happy writing.

    • Wow! very cool. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the group. Congrats on your Google indexing

  4. Hey, Vic!!
    Good seeing you again!!
    I started back up with Wealthy Affiliates early this year in January.
    The community and tons of lessons have got me to where I am now.
    My free website is about educating the guitar shopper or beginner guitarist.
    I couldn’t have done this without WA and the awesome community.
    I did this all at home while studying the lessons and asking questions whenever I got stuck. The support from the community are people from around the world. The UK, Australia, China, France, USA and more.
    The journey is slow going but with Wealthy Affiliates and the greatest community of them all, I feel success is just around the corner for me.

    • I think that’s the perfect attitude, just keep plugging away. I have read many accounts of people getting discouraged at about the 3 month mark, and just 2 months later Google started ranking their content higher, and the people started streaming in! Thanks for sharing your experience.

  5. Nice article, I appreciate your no BS information and honesty. You have a nice way to engage your readers from a personal level. Well done

  6. Hi Vic, great site, i like your style, its funny you say that you are not a good writer as the fact you are honest and speak that way has made you a good writer 😉

    Cheers, Paul

  7. Hello Vic, this a great and inspirational post for aspiring individuals that wants to build a website and start an online business. Great work Vic, keep it up.

    • Thanks for the compliments. I know I was surprised at just how easy it was to build a website, and I would not have imagined that I could be done for free.
