I consider myself somewhat of an amateur with computers, but like a ravenous dog with a juicy bone, I refuse to give up the fine taste of 'learning more'. In light of that attitude, I have come a very long way concerning bits and bytes and the innards of my PC. In my spare time, which is quite limited, I enjoy constructing and compiling websites for family and friends alike. If you are desirous of seeking my assistance with your site, please contact me. I shall do my best to ease your technical woes.
In the event I cannot attend to your web requests immediately, I shall make a mental note of your postulation and file it away for further/future reconsideration. Thank you in advance for seeking my assistance.
Listed below are links to just a few of the web pages I have been working on / consulted for lately.
In the spirit of continuously perfecting my website, I eagerly welcome your suggestions, comments or questions, pertaining to any area within my web domain. It has been a labour of love over the years, bringing www.laurberg.com into full maturity, and any feedback you think might be productive to my page, please be so kind as to let me know. You may contact me by way of my message form. Thanks for dropping by and please come again!
1. CAN ANYONE HAVE A WEBSITE?
The general perception of most computer users (more often the newbie's and sometimes the not-so-newbie's), is that websites are for businesses or large companies. This is a HUGE misconception. ANYONE can have their own site.
2. DO I HAVE TO PAY TO HAVE MY OWN WEBSITE?
Yes and no. If you are unsure of how to elicit webspace from your provider, it is probably best to obtain webspace from the internet. There are lots of sites that offer free web space, and usually the instructions are simple and step by step. Use a search engine and browse for free website or website design online or free web space/webspace. All of these keywords will provide information for you, and if you follow their advice carefully, you will be on the way to obtaining your website! To assist you in getting motivated I am providing three links, all of which offer free web space. Good luck!
3. ARE THERE RESTRICTIONS REGARDING THE CONTENT OF MY WEBSITE?
Yes there are restrictions. Once you are up and running with your website, you will learn incrementally what content is allowed or not allowed according to the World Wide Web's legislative web space code of conduct. Building a website, regardless of purpose, takes time and patience. The benefits of watching your own personal webspace grow and flourish however, far outweigh the frustrations and roadblocks you encounter along the way.
4. WHAT IS UPLOADING?
Uploading is the heart of your webspace. The material you choose to showcase on your website first needs to be uploaded from your harddrive. Uploading probably sounds complicated and intimidating, but actually it's not. After you try it a few times you'll know what I mean!
5A. HOW OFTEN CAN I CHANGE THE MATERIAL I UPLOAD?
As often as you wish. It's your website and you control the stream of uploads exclusively. Have fun with it!
5B. HOW OFTEN CAN I ADD NEW INFORMATION?
Again, as often as you wish. New materials can be uploaded every day if you choose to do so.
In closing, here is the very best advice I can offer. Never be afraid of your computer, never be afraid of doing something wrong. You cannot break your computer by trying a multitude of new things. Use your computer to the full limits of it's capacity. Apply your own skills in the same manner. That way you learn more and rise higher in the ranks of computer nerd-dom with each passing day. Just remember to have fun.
6. WHERE CAN I FIND HELP IN CASE I HAVE PROBLEMS GETTING STARTED?
First of all you are welcome to ask for my assistance. I have been dabbling in website design for many years and I'll be happy to help alleviate your frustrations if possible. Apart from that, browse the web and search for data using these keywords web domain help, website help, free domain space FAQ'S or something similar. Make sure you do not over compensate or complicate your search by using a lot of long keywords. Keep your search words short and precise according to your inquiry.
7. WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I LEARN HOW TO USE MY WEBSITE?
This is the very best question to ask in my opinion. What happens AFTER you obtain a personal web space? In a word FUN!
In closing, here is the very best advice I can offer. Never be afraid of your computer, never be afraid of doing something wrong. You cannot break your computer by trying a multitude of new things. Use your computer to the full limits of it's capacity. Apply your own skills in the same manner. That way you learn more and rise higher in the ranks of computer nerd-dom with each passing day.
