Tech Tuesday - Creating Web Sites

I have found out that Google will allow you to create a website that will be hosted on Google at no charge. Once you have a google account, just go to more, sites and create a website. If you use blogger it's really easy. You can build from scratch or use one of the many templates available. Many of the same widgets and tools are used. Some of the graphic capabilities are limited but you can work around those limitations. I have created pages in a word processor and pasted them into the website. The website can be fully public, invitation only or a combination with certain pages password protected. I think it's a great way to develop a web presence. So far I have created one for the local genealogy group and one for our Girl Scout troop.
