Steve, I've seen computer code. It makes me want to cry, and it looks nothing like writing. How do you get around that? (Can you?) I read your pages, and yes they sound like regular writing, but I just cringe at the thought of what your writing process must be like!
Grace, you really can relax. There are a few ways to go about this, but they all have one thing in common:
There is no reason you can't write what you want to first
, then add your html (the simplest computer code, and the only kind I use).
Here's how I do it. I compose my pages in a little piece of freeware called NoteTab Light
. I write what I want to write (keeping in mind specific keywords that I want the search engines to find this page for). Then I go back
and add the html.
Folks, html stands for "hyper-text markup language," and it's little more than some letters that tell the browser what should be in bold
and what should be a link
And adding the html is easier than it sounds! I highlight a word that I want bolded, double-click on Bold in NoteTab's menu, and voila!
And if that's too intimidating, the outfit I use offers ways to build a page that require NO html knowledge on your part. It's called Blockbuilder. You type your text in one box, and then anytime you want to make something a link, you just type its url (its web address) in another block.
Grace, here's who I use
. It's like magic. I recommend them to everyone.
