Create A Wedding Website....Part 1.......

So, I'm just finishing up my tutorial on how to create a wedding website. It's taking a lot longer than I thought it would.
The tutorial assumes no programming or computer knowledge AT ALL. That's really the tricky part. Walking people through getting a web hosting account, how to register a domain name, and how to install Wordpress. That's as far as I've gotten. Today I'm going to create a wedding website from scratch, so I have to decide on a domain name.
I'm also learning more about Photoshop. How to take screenshots and make them fit on my wedding site is tougher than I thought it would be. I should probably leave the Photoshop to the professionals, but I'm just too stubborn!
So far, only a couple of Orange County wedding vendors have contacted me about putting up a free listing, so my site is still pretty bare. But I think that'll start changing once my site starts coming together more. I'm still trying to figure out the finer points of CSS, but I'm getting there.
So, if any of you wedding vendors in Orange County want a free listing, let me know! I'm not charging anyone for anything, but I DO have a couple of affiliate links on there. So maybe in 6 months I'll have made enough to buy a cup of coffee! YAY!!
I haven't ventured into Facebook or Instagram territory yet, but I'm going to start that in a week or so. I'm not ranking anywhere on Google, but my site is showing up pretty high on Yahoo!(I can't believe people still use Yahoo!), so I get 30 or so unique visitors a day. I'm trying to get more Orange County wedding information up there so it can eventually be a valuable, junk-free directory of Orange County wedding vendors.
I'm also working on a tutorial for creating free wedding websites, but I'm not sure which free site I should use. I'll probably play it safe and stick with a free wordpress account.

I hope you all have a great day today!
