Website with Grandad's military history

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I am thinking of putting my grandfather's WWII history, photos, docs, recipes and so on (he was a RASC Master Baker, and some of the recipes are just bizarre) on a website, in order to make it available to a wider audience, but don't have the first clue how to start.

    It's not fire and brimstone stuff, but some people may be interested.

    Does anyone have any experience of doing a project like this? What software would work well, any idea of costs etc?

    I'm Mac-based, if that makes a difference.
     
  2. The simplest way is to create a blog. Most permit the creation of keywords for web-searches and most search-engines include blogs.
     
  3. try iWeb - gives you templates and things are fairly easy to drag and drop - you can then publish using MobileMe

    Blogging is simple, to create a website usually means paying for hosting and a domain name. This can be done for about 30 notes a year or less with websites in a box kits.
     
  5. Cheers all, I think I'll give iWeb a try first.
