You Are Here: Home » Website Making

This is kind of a joke – Aunty talking about making a website. However, this much is true: If Aunty can do it, ANYbody can do it, with a little bit of help.

The thing is, there are a lot of people, places, and resources that help, for free, some for a fee. Aunty hopes her free postings here will help you get started in the wonderful world wide web!!!

Scannable, a needed app

There are many times that we need to scan things - in order to save a document, send one, or to help us organize the tons of papers that we really don't need. Aunty does have a small portable scanner by ScanSnap that works great, but is limited to paper no wider than the standard 8 1/2", and the thinness of paper. Amy Lynn Andrews is one of Aunty's gurus (though she doesn't know it) for website creating, bu ...

Make a Website

First of all I must thank Chad Lamothe for totally revamping Aunty's website.  Chad first critiqued the original on and gave it a whipping, deservedly so.  Aunty then hired him for a very reasonable fee to fix it, and he did!  2nd of all, mahalo to you, Aunty's readers!!!  Now Aunty feels like a new butterfly that has emerged out of a cocoon. One day, number 1 son sat me down in ...

Google ranking

Ranking higher on Google searches is very desirable.  Every once in awhile, I would check in to update SEO because an email would arrive and say that it was overdue.  I have no clue why I was doing that, but the message made it sound like something Aunty should do on a regular basis in order to rank higher on search engines.

Monetizing a website

Chad Lamothe of Goodfella Marketing did Aunty a HUGE service when he reviewed Aunty's old website and totally blasted it.  Not only did he revamp it and task me with re-formats that took weeks (Aunty works slow), he also taught me about how to monetize the site. Monetize?  I told him that I don't like sites that have screaming ads or force people to put their contact info in to get a peak at something they ...
