    Browsing almost continuously for years now I have developed the urge for a 'HomePage' of my own. Not provided by ISP or others.

    Maybe very, very stupid question but. How do I do it?

    My selection of background,RSS feeds,article sources etc, etc.

    Just tired of having to modify whats out there to nearly approach my rather stayed tastes ;-)

    Be kind & thank you

    There are a number of free blog sites you can set up
    Or a free WordPress site

    You can go the easy route and sign up for a Wordpress, Blogger, or Google homepage, or use RapidWeaver or another webpage design program to make your own. The latter option requires buying a domain name and hosting space.

    Wordpress is great, the blog in my signature is Wordpress running on a Synology NAS in my home. I've run websites created with SandVox on it but Wordpress is so much easier to blog with.

    A NAS (LAMP) can host a website, some support dynamic DNS too.

    A LAMP can host a website? We must have different understandings of the capabilities of a lamp...


    (what does it stand for?)

    Wordpress?

    I have a 'wordpress' account with my own name, I think.
    Not bright on this stuff.
    Will have a look at what is there now and see if I can make it work (like I say not bright)

    There is so much 'stuff' I find it very confusing :)

    Thank you all so far. I will get back to this question after a look at 'wordpress'.

    Its not inexpensive but www.squarespace.com is a nice option for a site builder and hosting. I plan on moving 1-2 of our sites there in the near future.

    Of course, this being a Mac site, you might also see reference to MAMP which is LAMP with Linux -> Mac.

    Oh, that's what it is. I have MAMP on my computer, I just didn't know about LAMP. There is also XAMP if you wanted to use an old Windows computer.
