Planning Your Website=pen and paper

If you want to create a good and solid website, you need a good and solid plan.

Put pen to paper.

Put pen to paper.

Describe your site

Purpose for your site

  1. What am I going to do with this?
  2. Who is going to read this?
  3. What kinds of information will I be posting?
  4. Why am I doing this?
  5. Who am I doing this for?
  6. How often am I going to be posting and adding information?

Your idea is

“The website will be dedicated to providing news and information on computers, web pages, and the internet and cover the topics of computer tips, web page design, and internet news.”

Difference between Pages Posts

page postJust something to remember when you are working on the back end of a site what you do is not going to be the same as when you log out and see the site.

i.e. when you add a contact page you will see your name as the details, when you log out the tabs are clear of formatting. People get confused by this:so logout to see how your site really looks.

 

The advantages of a post is it is live. There is nothing to hinder your creativity. You just write add media and on to the next post. It is a stream of unconsciousness sometimes regrettably subconsciousness but mostly consciousness.

Yes some people have it set up to publish into the future,that’s ok takes the pressure off. Others have contributors.

If you keep a blog make it  regular, consuming, exciting, informative, unique  and not like the rest. don’t be afraid to be different be yourself.  Same but different. Be regular pleeese.

The advantages of a page is it is there. Constant, available, telling,static. No changes necessary unless you need to update it.

.com Versus .wordpress.com

What is a domain? How is it related to my site?

A domain name is a name used to identify a particular website on the internet. Your site’s domain name is like your mailing address: it lets people know where to find you. 

An example of a domain name is yourgroovydomain.com. When you register a domain (whether through WordPress.com or anywhere else)  you pay for the right to use that specific domain for a specific period of time. There is only ever one yourgroovydomain.com on the internet. It would be pretty confusing if entering yourgroovydomain.com could take you to a variety of different places! Like your address.

Doesn’t make sense.

 

Your domain exists independently of your site, however. You can use your domain with another site, or you can cancel it, or you can let it expire, and through all of that, your site with all of its content remains unchanged.

Best of all you can register your domain with WordPress itself for a small recurring fee per year.

At WordPress.com, every site has a default web address that ends in wordpress.com (like yourgroovydomain.wordpress.com).If you register a custom domain for your site, both the original address ending in wordpress.com (yourgroovydomain.wordpress.com) and the new domain (yourgroovydomain.com) will take visitors to your site (although once they are at your site, they will only see the new domain (yourgroovydomain.com) in their browser address bar).

If your domain expires, your site with all your content will still be there at the original site address (ie, yourgroovydomain.wordpress.com).

What is a registrar? Is WordPress.com my registrar?

A registrar is an organization that sells and/or manages domain name registrations. For the most part, whoever you pay for your domain is your registrar. If you paid WordPress.com, we are effectively your registrar.

RSS Pings Trackbacks

What is RSS?

RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.

Why RSS? Benefits and Reasons for using RSS

RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site’s email newsletter. The number of sites offering RSS feeds is growing rapidly and includes big names like Yahoo News.

And Pings

A ping is what happens when one software program notifies another one of an update. It’s basically an electronic way two software applications or computers say “hello, here’s what’s new.” In computer networks (and the internet) one computer can ping another to see if it is online and active. It sends out a signal, or, “ping” over the network to see if it reaches anything. Think of sonar pings from an old war movie, or something, and you get the idea.

and Trackbacks

When you come across a blog post that inspires you to write your own blog post, or which you want to cite, you can manually create a kind of link to it known as a trackback. It’s called a trackback because the link “tracks” back to the other blog. When you create a trackback, the blog that you’re tracking back to will be notified. How is it notified? It’s pinged, naturally! When you are writing a post in WordPress 2.5.1, you see the trackback area (pictured below) beneath the writing window.
