3 Free Tools for Creating Web Sites and eBooks
Free Webmaster Tools for NewbiesThere is no getting out of it, sooner or later you'll have to learn to do some of the tech stuff yourself. If you don't, you'll end up depending on those who do have the skills to do what needs to be done.
So learn to hand code html. If you do, you will be able to create ebooks and websites. These new skills will become a part of you. Eventually over time, your skills will evolve and your creations will become better and better.
Learning new skills is not difficult. It just takes a bit of willingness to give it a go. It does not matter if you want to learn just for fun or if you want to get serious about making money on the Internet, you will feel great satisfaction knowing that you can do this stuff.
Zip UtilityYou just gotta have a zip utility if you intend to spend time on the Internet. I use Winzip for all my zipping and unzipping needs. It is fast and easy to use. If you would like to check out other zip utilities, go to download.com and do a search.
HTML EditorTo build web pages and eBooks, you'll need some kind of HTML editor. I use 1st Page 2000 for all my HTML editing. It is 100% Free for ever with all features working. This page and web site is being built with this editor.
After the editor is installed, you'll need some web pages to study. Search Google with the key words "free web page template". Don't worry, I just did it. Here is the search results.
Quick Lesson:All I did to begin learning was to simply open up these templates and study the code from within the editor and try to relate it to what I could see on the actual web page. For example, here is a shot of code from within the HTML editor:

This is a screenshot of some code from this web page. Study the code and relate it to what you see on this page.
When you are ready to learn some more commands, go to The HTML Help Guide for a good range of Free tutorials.
To transfer your web site to the Internet, you'll need an FTP program. Go to download.com to find several Free FTP programs available for download. I like WS_FTP because it is fast to learn and easy to use. Another popular program is CuteFTP.
