Who Knew Building a Custom Website Was So Easy?!

Building A Custom Website

Had you asked me five years ago what a blogger was, I would not have had an answer. And then I answered an ad for a product reviewer with a popular lifestyle blogger. I learned much about the world of blogging in those three years. I realized I had a voice and wanted to share it with more than my immediate family and friends.

I knew how to create the content to share, but didn’t know how to share it. I needed to build a website, but I had no idea how, So, I did what many newbies do. I had someone set up my website for me. I decided if I could now show a new blogger how to do one thing, it would be building a custom website. With the GoDaddy GoCentral Website Builder, even a novice can create theirs in less than an hour! The only news better than this would be you can get a *1 month free trial of GoDaddy’s GoCentral Website Builder, through 4/10/17.

To get started, you need to create your GoDaddy account. This takes a few seconds. Next, you choose which type website you need. You can chose from four that range from a personal website to an online store. Once you figure that out, you get to tell the GoCentral Website Builder what your site is about and the name. You will soon see several mock-ups for the layout of your new website.

I found ours quickly and dove right in! For your header and logo, you can choose from many selections with the GoCentral Website Builder  or upload your own. I chose to upload our own. When you are ready to choose your fonts, colors and type your text, the instructions are very easy to follow. I was excited to see so many different fonts to choose from.

With the layout I chose, I was able to tell a little about the writers, the website itself and what it offers to potential readers. Again, the GoDaddy GoCentral Website Builder, made this quite simple to achieve. Before I knew it, everything was filled in and ready to go. I clicked the publish button and viola! Building a custom website took me less than 40 minutes!

You can also set up your SEO, social media, and emails to go with your site. If you ever need to change anything, you can always go back and edit and update anytime. If you are mobile, you can make changes from your smartphone, which is so convenient. I was impressed at how professional the new Thrifty Jinxy Kids Page looks. I know our readers will enjoy it as well!

  1. I didn’t realize it was this easy to make a website. I’ve use word press for a very long time but I boys had someone else build it for me. I will have to check into this.

  2. Wow, that is such a great, and easy way to get started with blogging! I started with Blogger, but I really like the though of starting up on your own host.

  3. I’m glad I didn’t start from scratch all those years ago, but this makes me want to. If nothing else, just to see what I can create!

  4. I’ve never ventured into creating my own website, but this makes it looks so easy! This would be the perfect place to start with blogging~

  5. I have never created my own website. This sounds like even I could design one for myself. And the free trial is a great deal!

    I have created my own website and I love the process. I am a creative person so it is fun to pick out all the options for your site.

  7. Seems like it was really easy for you to create it! I had someone help me with my site because it seemed so difficult.

  8. What a surprise that is, LOL, but so good to know now. I’ve been redesigning my blog for 4 years and it’s almost done. I wish I’d seen your post back when I started.

  9. I have never built a website, because I always thought it was super difficult. You’ve convinced me that I could actually do it, lol.

  10. Building a website today is so much easier than when I was starting my blog. I wish something like this had been around when I was starting my blog.

  11. It’s been a long time since I built my website but they sure have came along way. I wish this was around when I started my blog.

  12. This is really cool. Not as overwhelming as I thought it would be!

  13. Awesome! It’s so easy to just make websites now-a-days! 🙂

  14. I’ve never tried to create my own website before. It doesn’t sound that hard though. Maybe in the future! 🙂

  15. Building your own website can be intimidating. It’s great that GoDaddy has made it so easy to do.

  16. This would have been great to have used when I was starting out. It is so much easier to use and to understand.
