Links To
Web Design Goodies!!

G'day!! If you're a newbie (or even if you're not), you'll find this page helpful. I've listed links that I've found handy since I started messing around on the internet about 4 years ago and making web pages for a hobby. If you know of any sites that are excellent for newbies or web designers or anybody else, please email me the URL and I'll check it out. I'm always looking for free sites that offer anything from free banner makers to simple HTML instructions.

If you're about to endeavour to make your first home page, good luck! There are many sites and lots of tools out there to make it fun and relatively easy (yes, it may look hard at first, but after a few tries, you'll get the hang of the basics very quickly especially with all the page builders/editors out there - mind you, I now write all my HTML on my notepad and recommend that as you learn, you try to understand each command so that you can write it yourself and not rely on other sources).

All links will open in a new browser.

Cool site - heaps of fonts to choose from...easy to navigate and download zips.

Angelfire - Free Home Pages
50 megabytes of web space...Angelfire has improved immensely over the past couple of years...especially since Lycos took over.

FortuneCity - Free Home Pages
Now only 25 megabytes of space....FortuneCity used to offer 100mb...and still don't seem as good as some of the others to warrant the backwards stance they've taken for personal web pages. Not recommended.

Geocities - Free Home Pages
50 megabytes of space but generally the servers are always running slow along with ftp....they're too big for they're servers...Not recommended.

Tripod - Free Home Pages
50 megabytes of space with fast servers and ftp. I prefer Tripod over all other free space providers. (And I've tried them all and have web pages with them all). Highly recommended for the newbie with guts to get in and learn.
