The Candle Cauldron's Guide To
Making your own website!
Ok, so you've mastered the art of making candles
and now you want a website to sell them....
I've put together the following list of links to help you make your own site for little or no cost.  It takes some time and a creative flair, but it is possible to make your own instead of paying tons for a service to do it for you.  I am a self taught web designer, and I started out using Angelfire's online page maker, then read and studied HTML, tried a couple of page making programs, started playing with graphics, and the rest is history!  Many people ask me if I can make a site for them.  I used to offer my services for hire, but I have gotten too busy between maintaining my personal site (The Candle Cauldron) and my business site (Bitter Creek) and I no longer have any time available to do side jobs designing sites for others (sorry guys!).
But I can at least help point you in the right direction :)  Good luck, you can do it!
