In the year 1998, I created my first website using HTML.
It took quite a bit of time and tweaking to design the page the way I want it. Basically, I had to adjust the coding and hit Refresh on the browser until what I see is what I want. It was fun but lots of work. That was my foray into website creation in the early days.
These days, you don’t have to go through all that HTML/coding jungle to create a website for your blogs. There are lots of platforms (Free and Paid) that allow you to do that in a blink of an eye.
I use Site Builder.
It is a WordPress platform (within Wealthy Affiliate) that enables you to build your website in 4 simple steps and it won’t take you more than 5 mins as many of the processes are automated. HOWEVER, you still have the full capability to customize basically any part of it to your heart’s content.
If you do exceed 5 mins to setup your website using Site Builder, it is most likely that you were so mesmerized by the overwhelming database of themes (over 2000 themes!) to choose from that you lost track of time. Well, that is another problem and I have an article for that called Choosing your Theme for Blogging Success.

It allows you to focus on the most important thing – creating awesome content for your audience without being bogged down by the tech.
