Whether you want to build the foundation of your career, sell a homemade product, share your photography, or simply talk about your life online, a website is a great place to start. I use SquareSpace for my blog and highly recommend it. They have many different layouts to choose from, and they make it easy to create a domain. They have a free two-week trial, but after that SquareSpace costs $12 – $40 a month. My friend recently told me that he created his website using GoDaddy for the domain and Wix for the building and hosting of it. Although I personally have not tried this method, he confirms that it worked out well for him.
We live in a uniquely technological age, where it seems that everyone is either a famous YouTube or viral singer, and it can be easy to constantly compare yourself to others online. Just remember that you have your own gifts and talents–qualities that are unique to you! Technology should be used to cultivate your aspirations, not to put down your own talents by comparing yourself to others. Do what you love, and remember that you’re the only person capable of gifting your unique talents and personality to the world!
