whats up with something educational?

August 18th, 2006 at 01:50 pm

Well after quite a bit of waffeling and debating, and hopefull attempts at not doing it alone, I have decided that a website would be cheaper and easier for me to maintain...

I just need to register the name and get some bandwidth/space. My wonderful and patient husband is searching out the cheapest option on that...but I really am not sure I want to make a long commitment..while I do still get some interest from my work (and boy does that make my day!) I do not know if I could recoup my costs...if it is just me and my dozen fans, I will never make the money, even if it is only 3$ a month (plus tax) on the other hand if I never try it I will never find out..and right now when I am CC free would be the time to find out....

In the meantime I am starting to write some of the ideas on word documents to cut and paste into whatever online method we get ..but I am afraid I won't be able to cut and paste, so I waffle on that too.

I am also debating, I wanted something you can sit with your kid and do..I was thinking of a 'game of the day, or game of the week' that would be emailed out in pdf format...then leave the printing up to parents..course if my dozen fans are like me the pdfs will fill up the inbox and nothing will get printed! though I would read teh idea part of the email, and IMO the more you read the more the information seeps in and starts to become part of your life....which is the whole reason I wanted to start this thing anyway...

    I use to host my websites and Frontpage for the creation of them. The good part is that after you learn how to do websites you can sell your skills and make websites for other people and businesses and recoup some of your expenses!

    I'm not saying $3 a month isn't unreasonable nor will it break the piggy bank, but $3 a month sounds a bit high.

    There are still web host providers that will offer it for free, provided that you can put up with the mandatory banner ads, and not having the exact domain name that you want.

    Doteasy, a web provider that I use, offers it essentially for free, but the do charge for holding the domain name for you. Still, they only charge $25 a year, or $2.08 per month. If you sign up for 5 years, it would cost $90, but that's $18 per year, or 1.50 per month. And that's with the domain name you want and no banners.
