Maybe you already have your own Web site and you’re not quite satisfied with it. Or perhaps you’re still in the planning stages and want to know what you can do to make your site as good as it can be.
You’ve been to Web sites that have all the bells and whistles, and you wouldn’t be human if you weren’t just a wee bit envious. Well, now you can have it all too. In Building a Web Site for Dummies, 4th Edition, I show you some of the best stuff around, and I tell you just how to go about putting it on your site.
About This Book
This isn’t just another Web design book. It’s special. Really. I set out to write the one book I’d want by my side if I were looking to set up a really fancy Web site and not break the bank doing it. I tracked down and tested zillions of Web-site enhancements and selected the top of the line to share with you. And I’m honestly proud of the results.
I’ve authored or coauthored more than 20 books on computers and the Internet, and this one is my hands-down favorite. It’s full of things you’re sure to love. It’s packed with fun stuff, but it’s got plenty of serious stuff, too, like how to get past the hype and really make money through your Web site. You’ll wonder how in the world you ever got along without having these features on your Web site.
How to Use This Book
Keep this book next to your computer and never lend it to anybody. It’s far too precious for that. Make your friends buy their own copies. If you need to make space on your bookshelf, throw away anything else you own to make room for it.
When you travel, take it with you. Hold it in your arms at night and tell it how much you love it. Each chapter is a stand-alone entity. (Don’t you just love that word?) You don’t have to read the whole thing, and it’s a rare person who will read the book from cover to cover right off the bat.
Go ahead hit the table of contents or the index and jump to the parts you’re most interested in. But don’t forget to explore the
rest of the book after you’re done with the parts that excite you most. You won’t
regret spending the time — you’ll find wonders in every chapter.
