Creating a webpage/homepage

Hi..I think I have finally created my home/webpage! If you click on my name and go to my profile you will see the url for it. It is only a start and not as fancy as I want, but after spending two hours on it (three altogether since I got to iVillage) and getting a stiff neck, and numb arm...I think I have finally figured out how to get photos on my site. Now all I have to do is get my digital camera figured out and you all can see my critters!

If I can do this home/webpage ANYONE can do it!!! So, if you have time why don't you try. I think I went to the ivillage link at the top of this page and there is a link for creating a webpage. I followed the directions and managed to come up with a start on my webpage....so if you want...take a look and let me know how you like it! I also sent out invitations to those of you whose email addy I have to see it.

Hugs, and now I am going outside!!! Sandi

oooooooo, Sandi! I LOVE YOUR NEW HOMEPAGE!! I love the pictures of your Kansas Winter, and of course, those of your beautiful painted horse (and I just forgot her name! UGH!)

And girls, for your into, the addy for her site is listed below......

http://pages.ivillage.com/sweetpea1946/

It'll save you going into her profile (somethng I'm still having trouble with!) in order to get it.

Now you need a page counter and Guestbooks, and I can walk you through this if you'd like! They are really very easy to do, and you'll want your visitors to write their comments, as well as be counted! Do you want me to email you or explain it here? Let me know! HUGGS....

YooHoo! Would you like to see some pictures I have added to my webpage? I still can't upload all I want...and have been sitting here for three hours straight to do what I have on my webpage...so if you would like to see DH, DGD, DS#3 and DDIL take a peek at my family album page.

Thanks, Sandi

Thanks Liz...I would like you to help me with my guest book and counter, but I am pooped and my neck is killing me! After three solid hours trying to upgrade my webpage, I am going to bed with a heating pad!

Maybe later we can get our heads together and you can show me how.

Hugs, Sandi

I just took another look at your website........URL below, for anyone reading this message......

http://pages.ivillage.com/sweetpea1946/

........and I LOVE all your new pictures of family, the cowgirl, the ol' rockin chair, the animals wagging tails, munching hay! As for your DH, I'd know him anywhere, since I saw him (with Sage) in a pic once you sent to me! Your website is looking really greeeeeat! Aren't you just so proud of yourself now? See? It wasn't all that hard, either!

And of course I'll gladly help walk you through doing the Guestbook and counter, which both should go on the bottom of your Home (first) page. These are easier than putting pictures on, cuz you don't have to go through all that "loading" process! It's done by Trellix in a wink!

Let me know if you want me to email you or post it here on the board. Get a good night's rest! I know how tense one gets sitting here for hours working on a website! I'll catch up with ya in the mornin! HUGGS....and congrats again on your website!

Hi again Liz...here I am, bright eyed and bushy tailed! LOL The heating pad and ice pack seemed to have done their work. DH is gone to Des Moines IA to pick up their second truck (the one that had problems) he didn't want anyone to fly to IL to get it in case it had problems on the way back, so he is taking a fellow up and meeting the truck in Des Moines to bring it home. Anyway, I am up and decided to try to download some of my digital camera photos IF I can...try, try again. If you would email me with the way to put in my guestbook and counter, I would appreciate it.

Thanks! Have a great weekend!

Hugs, Sandi

Hi, Sandi! Be selective when you put images on your pages, cuz you can use up the 2 MG of memory space very quickly that iVillage allots for websites! Then you either have to buy extra memory (if iVillage sells it—can't remember, since it's a free site) or you'd have to transfer your site to one that charges a fee per month, but allots you much more MGs of memory than free sites do.

I've done a rough draft of the directions for putting counter and Guestbook on your site, and will type it up and email it to your Hotmail addy, okey? Allow me at least a half hour, cuz me eyes are sore from staring at this small text on screen yesterday!

Hope DH gets home safely with the new truck! HUGGS....

Oops! Here I am thinking I can put as many images as I want on my page! I guess I need to go back and take a few things off! Thanks for the heads up!

I will look for the tips on guest book and counter in my hotmail. Thanks!

Hugs, Sandi

I noticed that as well, Sandi, when I thought I'd visit your pages again. I went and checked my sites and they load okey, so let's hope it is just a glitch, as you say. I'm certain your webpage is still on the iVillage server since it has been published. Hang in there, hon! HUGGS....

Thanks Liz...I hope it wasn't because I was over my memory limit. I was going to go and try to put in the counter and guest book like you suggested. I will try it today and see if it comes up.

Hugs, Sandi
