Top Reasons to Create a Personal Website

By creating your own website you will have a wide variety of people, as well as future employers, viewing what you have to say and how you want to say it.  You can definitely be your own boss when creating your own website!

Things to Include On Your Personal Website

First and foremost, you want to create a website that is user friendly for all.  By having consistent ways of browsing your site, you can easily guide visitors through your site without questions.  If you are on Twitter or Facebook, you may also want to include ways on your personal website to contact you on these media outlets.

You may also want to add a copyright notice to your personal website.  Find a JavaScript that will do this for you.  They are easy to find and will allow you copyright privileges.

Lastly, a way to contact you is always useful.  People need to know how to get a hold of you if needed.  You can have a phone number, or if your not comfortable with that, have an e-mail address where a potential employer can contact you.

Creating a memorable personal website is important.  It is the first impression people visiting your site will have of you and all you have to offer them.
