All About iWeb has been around for over 2 and a half years now and in that time I must have seen thousands of iWeb sites. Some good and some not so good. Not through any fault of the iWeb user, they are only doing what Apple designed iWeb for, picking their favorite theme, adding a splash of content and then publishing to MobileMe.
That is why I have written 21 Days to a Better iWeb Site. The program has been designed after long and careful planning and aimed solely at iWeb users who want to get a little bit more from their iWeb site; whether it is a completly new iWeb site or just redesigning an old one.
Starting on 1 June and running for 21 Days (obviously) I will be publishing a lesson on nice and wide, ad free pages that takes you from the initial stages of picking the right theme for your iWeb site right through to Day 21 where I will explain lots of tips and useful advice to get your iWeb seen on mobile devices. In between we’ll be discussing how to design a good Home page, About Me page, how to get SexyBookmarks on your iWeb site, using video, images and sound, alternative RSS methods, picking a good host and promoting your iWeb site to the world. Everything I can think of to make a gorgeous and successful iWeb site is covered.
The whole three week program is not designed to replace any of the tutorials that are already available on the internet, either on Apple, All About iWeb or any other iWeb tutorial site, rather they are there to add to them. Each day’s lesson will include links to many of the already published tutorials to save you looking, along with helpful sites and examples.
And when you have completed all 21 days you will then be able to download the whole package as an eBook in either PDF or eBook format; that way you can refer to it time and again whenever you are building an iWeb site.
Here’s the complete list of lessons (althought the titles may change, you get the idea).
