From the Publisher

I wish I’d had this book four years ago when I began to plan my web site. At first, progress appeared simple and straightforward. But somehow, somewhere along the journey some tasks and concepts fused to form a jumble. I searched topic specific web sites and participated in online forums for answers. It didn’t help that while looking for solutions too often one information source contradicted the other.

What I have concluded is that while tools available to build a web site have improved tremendously the fundamental concepts, planning and development tasks haven’t much changed. If understood the fundamental concepts can be the difference between success and failure.

For his work on behalf of charities such as World Relief that takes him around the globe, the technology is a godsend. “Since I’m out in the field so often, I don’t have a ton of time to work on my website,” says Edwards, who is based in Bend, Ore. “I can be in Bolivia, shoot a photo and, if I have cell service, it can

How to Build Your Personal Website in Less Than 10 Seconds

Back in August 2012, Strikingly co-founder David Chen had one goal: launch the simplest, fastest web builder around. His team succeeded in its first iteration, creating a service that used customers' Facebook profiles to auto-fill a basic website in one click. But competitors such as Sitefly work that way as well. So to distinguish Strikingly from the Facebook pack and enable it to build more robust websites in one step, Chen in January switched his platform so that it pulls from LinkedIn instead. "Facebook doesn't have enough information for us to use and create a functional website, while Li
