    Default How to start a site?

    How do I start a site that contains writings and photos?

    I don't want it to be a free blog site because when it becomes popular and has impressive number of hits I may want to use it commercially e.g. to host ads etc.

    Thanks.

    I use free CMS like Joomla (though for now I've removed all the writing parts )

    i use joomla too. first go sign up for a domain. then upload the joomla system. then write your articles like you would on a blog site. change your template if you want to. all will be well.

    Joomla is free, you proabably only pay for your hosting, and domain name.

    About US$8.99 for domain name/per yr, maybe $6 or less per mth for good hosting.

    What's this joomla thingy u guys are talking abt?

    My site's gonna expire in January or so. Probably would need to revamp it to give it a cleaner look.
