Check out some free web page providers here.

Step #2:
Get yourself one of those HTML editor things so you can do some fancy stuff.
What the heck is HTML?
Gimme one of those HTML editor thingies.

Step #3:
Let folks Email you and sign your guestbook.
Get Free Email
Will anybody give me a free guestbook?

Step #4:
Let everybody know how to find your web page.
You mean I have to register it?
I need some way to get the word out.

OK, #5:
I know I said there were four easy steps; but you're still here, now aren't you? I guess you need some more help.
Isn't there any more software?

Be sure to visit WebWords - Free Web Page Graphics & Design Tips !!!

Some places charge for some things, and others start charging after their free stuff gets too popular. I try to give you only the best links with mostly free stuff. If you get into paying for something because you didn't read the fine print, don't say I didn't warn you. Oh, by the way, be sure you read the fine print on stuff that might not be free after all. Here's a clue: If it asks for a credit card number, it's probably not free. Also, don't ask me for technical support. This site is a WYSIWYG site. I'm no expert anyway, and there are plenty of them out there. As I find places that do offer such advice for free, I'll post them on this page. If you know of any, Drop me a line

These are the easiest web page providers to get up on; but they're very limited in what you can do with them. Not much space, not many graphics, and no more than one or two pages.

Web Page Providers
These web page providers have more to offer. You may have anywhere from 200k to 2 megs of space for free (some may even offer more for free, and lots more for a small fee). You'll probably be able to put several pages on one server. You should be able to upload your own graphics and sounds. Many also provide graphics, counters, and lots of help. Some have their own upload programs. With most, you'll be able to upload via ftp, if you prefer.

What is HTML?
HTML is the way your instructions are written for the computer so the it knows what to do with all your stuff. It's the way you tell the computer what you want on your web page, where you want it, what you want it to look like, and where the computer can find it.
With your HTML editor software, you will be able to design your webpage on your computer before you submit it to the World Wide Web. You can save it on your hard drive, preview it with your web browser, and edit it before it goes out to millions of other people. Cool, huh?
Start with an easy browser. Hot Dog is pretty easy. If you know of a simpler one, drop me a line

Email Forwarding is a great way to avoid having to change your Email address
Have you ever moved, changed ISP, or just decided you hate your Email address?
The solution is simple. Get a new Email address that will forward all you Email wherever you want. If you're going on a trip, and need to keep up with your Email, just have it sent there. If you want to keep your Email private; but be able to use someone else's computer to retrieve it, have it forwarded to one of the web-based Email accounts from the providers listed above. Changing ISP? No problem. Your friends keep Emailing to the forwarding address they always have been, and you just notify the service where to send it now.

Yes, you must register to get hits!
You will need to register your web page with search engines, links pages, etc. so people can find you on the web. This also gives you the opportunity to make your statement known. You can put a little bit of information about your website on most search engines. You can pay someone to do this for you, or do it yourself lots of places for free. To figure out where to register it first, think of where you would look to find a web page like yours.
TIP: Keep a list of places you have registered your web page. Later you may want to register it lots of other places, and you don't need to register it more than once in the same place (people kind of get mad when you do that).

Make your Web Presence Known!
Register with these search engines and other places to advertise your web page.
Nobody will know it's out there if you don't tell them.
