where to start you of at.??? lets try this..

So you have gotten your eBay account and have started to sell the junk laying around your house.. fun isn’t it?
You can also go to thrift stores in your area and look for bargains. I have friends that make livings going around to yard sales buying other people’s junk and selling it on eBay.
If you are not into collectables eBay can be a bit of a challenge, but look at things like designer clothing when you go thrift store shopping.. sometimes you can find new clothes on the racks, then eBay it.. glass wear and the like are also popular eBay items. All you need is a little time and a little effort. Trial and error is how I came to find that I loved selling books on eBay. With a little effort you will find your niche;’ trust me.

But this post is not about ebay.. if you do not already have that taken care of, go click on the link to the right and do it.

This post is about having a web site.
You can have a website and you can have it for free. I have used angelfire for a number of popular sites.

Angelfire will help you get set up with a free account, your payment back to them is that they will run banner ads or pop up ads on your site… a small price to pay for first getting out there.
Tips on getting a free website.. when you go to choose the name pick something that you will be writing about, and use it in the name of the site.

Example: mi2/hottubs is their user name, the site is about hot tubs. When you submit your website to the search engines you will want a URL that has to do with the subject matter of the site. (don’t worry I will talk about search engines at length a little later)
Fo now step one, is think of something you like, or have enough knowledge about that you could write a website, nothing too huge is necessary just a few pages.. got your subject?

Okay now go to angelfire, and ask for your website.. note your user name will have something like “mi2” in front, if you can find one of these prefixes that pertains to your site good, if not just pick anything, then put you number one keyword or keywords in the place of the rest of your user name like “hottubs” in our example above.

Now start writing, and adding photos, rule number one is have fun.. we’ll talk about how to promote your site and how to get it listening in the search engines soon.. but for now enjoy your eBay money and your new website.

You can do the same thing here at blogger if you would like to start a blog.. I think you should do both, but one step at a time.. when you get a blogger account you will want to use the same rule about keywords in the name of the blog. Note this blogs URL.. it is keyword rich.
