You should create a blog. That would be a cool idea. Then the whole world will know your darkest and deepest secrets.

Check out this site for hosting your blog:

http://www.blogger.com/

Or if your really brave and want to delve into the technical aspects of creating a website from the ground up, then you should create a webserver on your computer, buy a domain for about 10 bucks a years, and write all the html/css/php stuff by hand.

Government work, Uh

You should really look into designing the page with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). It allows you to get layout just perfect. You could also use a PHP, CGI, or Perl to create dynamic content. You could have site that change themes with the specific day. You could also create your own forum. Lots of neat stuff that can be done on the web

www.angelfire.com

gives you a free site with about 10 megs of space. Of course the how to is up to you;) Just do a google on html, and you'll find a billion sites on making a webpage- it's dummy proof these days.

www.741.com has a pretty sweet deal going on.

Not quite sure what your wanting out of your site, but this place offers a fairly decent free package, and I think the 1GB package is only 12 bucks a month.

I just went to Angelfire.com awhile ago and registered for their free member account. It has very limited features and space, but great for simple or beginner web sites. I've already started a webpage there. I have just the beginning of the first page, but overall the page builder is pretty cool and easy to use. You can see the page if ya want, but dont laugh, its my first one.

Gale: a good link if you wanna know more about HTML, CSS, PHP and all the other stuff ddurado mentioned:

Some of the web-hosting sites offer a site-builder service but what I tried was not too impressive. I think you should do it yourself from scratch.....

yeah, i used to have a cool site at someplace... it was cool... but none of these are exactly awesome... I'm thinking i may need to do one from scratch in order to do myself justice. Afterall, it must be Gale-worthy...

or maybe i should step down as the Gale fan club pres and give the position to someone else who can do webpages...
