In fact not only can you do it for free but you can be up and running in under 3 minutes. The following video shows you exactly how in very easy steps and will literally get you started in the blink of an eye.
The video shows you how to make a site using wordpress.com.
Disclaimer #1: There are many options when it comes to free websites, so this is far from the only way. I’ve used a few of them too – this site (i.e. Life’s Too Good) was created in Google Sites (which is also completely free) before I moved it to WordPress (I explain why in this post about comments). Then there’s also hubspot, squidoo, weebly, wix and any number of others – there are lots of free website platforms.

It’s also a little for me too because it’s the first video I’ve ever made which is…”
Yes, believe it or not, unknown to me the computer chopped all that off at the start of the audio. As I went through a good number of takes before I could record this without crashing my computer and each time having to create a new google mail ID, a new wordpress ID and a new name for the blog, I thought I’d stick with this one… enjoy…
Despite being rough around the edges, I’m actually quite proud of this. It does live up to its promise and show you how to create a new site in under 3 minutes and also how to get started. Please let me know what you think in the comments below…
