Webdesign for dummies

2010 March 13
Posted by tullepigen

So you are about to make your very first website and don’t know a think or two about webdesign or blogging?

Here’s a few basic steps to get started on your very first blog and joining the rank of webdesigners.

First you will have to signup for an account here at blog.com, it’s pretty easy and 100% free, just goto their main page and signup, fill in your information and viola you are ready to begin on your first blog. Excited? Well you should be because it’s really fun once you gets started on it.

You will start out at the dashboard, this is the place where you get an overview over your blog tools.
Let’s start by picking a new theme look for your blog, click on appearance in the menu to your left and select themes.
Choose the theme you like the best on click ok.

Now on to the actually text,click on posts and select “Add New”, an edit box will popup and here you can fill whatever you want to write about in your blog. You can insert pictures, videos, add links to your favorite sites and much more.
If you know a little bit of HTML you can click on the HTML tab in above and design your own stylings with html.

Finish writting your text and click on the publish button to the left and your blog goes live. Now can now add more posts, or return another day and add a new one. Check the site and if you don’t like something about it go back and redit the page until you are satisfied. Simple and Easy, never before has it been this fast to go online with your messages or whatever you wish to share with the world. Learn a little more about proper techniques at Billig hjemmeside design.

That is what I have choosen to share with you guys today. Maybe next week I will be posting some more tutorials on webdesign and hjemmeside building, if I get the time which I really hope I do. Time is something I don’t have that much of right now due to work and a new house.
I hope you enjoyed this little article about webdesign and hjemmeside layout. Next week we will take a look at various scrips on webpages and how to correctly use safe colors for your design, which types of fonts to use and what to consider should you want to buy a complete website instead of trying to make one yourself. So return at some later point to see our new posts and you might find some useful information here at this dummies blog. I’ll share the various tips and hits with you but most of it is just hard word and practice, fancy photoshop techniques and such are a very small part of it, the rest takes practice and experience which will come the more you use your webdesigner skills. Give it a try it’s fun and more easy than you would expect to at first.

And hereby ends the part 1 on the webdesign for dummies – Blogging tutorial.

    Great newbie webdesign tutorial, using wordpress blogs is a very easy and fast way to get started on building your first webpage.
    After a few of those many want to try move and soon some of you will be creating your own webpages without the use of these freehosted blogging systems. You will start to notice you get a lot more freedom, a larger selecting of themes and layouts if you still continue to use wordpress.

I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free and helping out those who are new to this. It’s the old what goes around comes around routine, thanks for the post.

    Helo there Tulle, well I think that your published content is rather thoughtful, it does highlights a good deal of insightful info on web-design and hjemmeside creation. In Any Event, was thinking whether you would want to interchange contacts with my site that is also about hjemmesider, as I am searching to generate more contacts to further inflate and gain ground for my web portal and other websites. I do not mind you locating my contacts at the sitewide page, just having this links on this particular web page is more than adequate, that’s for sure. By the way, please do leave a message at my web space if you are keen in exchanging links with me,as I would really appreciate that and looking forward to exchanging traffic with you. Thanks a lot and hopefully to get a reply from you very soon my friend.

    Wow, I think what you said earlier is completely true. Solves the problems that I am experiencing. Nicely since I am already here to see what this is all about, wonder if you would be type sufficient to exchange hyperlinks with my webdesign site. I shall be placing your hyperlink within the blogroll section just to make you satisfied, and I hope that our link exchange will help us make both of our blogs better.

    Helo there webdesigner, well I truly see that your argued subject is rather observing as it contains lots of interesting info for a beginner like myself. Anyway, was curious whether you would like to interchange som quality web links with my web space, as I am looking to build contacts to further enlarge and get better web exposure for my site, which is also about webdesign. I do not mind you pointing my web links at the front page, just having this web links on this particular page is good and adequate for me. Moreover, would you please reach me at my site if you are interested in swapping links with me, I would really appreciate that as it would help my web design site grow. I would like to thank you now for a great site and hopefully to get a reply from you soon!

    What I wouldnt give to have a debate with you about this as you are completely right about what you say about design. You just say so many things that that impress me. Your site is special visually, I mean people wont be bored after reading this. But others who can see past the videos and the layout be so impressed with your generic figuring of this topic unlike me.

    This may be off base in this case, but how about changing the layout every now and then and make it more dynamic? Maybe not if it won’t look right though. My own computer has about 1000 wallpapers that randomly rotate every 15 minutes or so. Too much coffee I guess, well anyway. Good post though, thanks.
    Thanks,
