20 Reasons to create a Web Site non business related

Running a website is an easy way to bring something you love to the public eye and interact with others from all over the world who appreciate your interests or talents. It’s also rewarding – sometimes financially, but always personally. The best part? You don’t need to rank at the top of the search results if you don’t run a business. Other than knowing a few basics about website safety, you just need to be you.

Even if you think you have nothing unique to say, chances are that you do. Here are 20 quick ideas to help you get started:

1. Mommy Blog
Write a blog about your experiences as a mother. Write posts about things you learn and experience, and keep track of your baby’s growth with photos. Your family will love this detailed baby album, and strangers can benefit from reading and learning about your experiences.

2. Your Wedding
Memorialize your special day and all the details of it with a wedding blog. You can tell stories about how you met, the proposal day, and wedding planning progress. Of course, when the big day happens, post photos of everything – from the big kiss to the table settings. People love seeing the ideas of other couples and sharing in the joy of marriage.

3. Show off your car collection
Whether your cars belong in a garage like Jay Leno’s, or you keep your micro-machine collection in shoe boxes, starting a website to show off your collection is a brilliant idea. If you’re a collector, starting a blog is a fun way to keep track of what you’ve previously collected, and organize any future purchases.

4. Your resume (in detail)
Posting your detailed resume on a website is a modern way to let potential employers learn a bit more about you at their convenience. This will also help you stand out from the crowd of other applicants. Sure, you can also use LinkedIn as an online resume. But showing more of your personality, writing style, and especially that you have the skills to build your own website gives you an edge.

5. Sweet 16
You (or your kids) only turn 16 once! A blog that highlights the party and the events will be fun to share with family and friends. Plus other teens may look to your party for ideas in planning their own big day.

6. Reserve your names (legal name and professional)
Starting a “YourNameHere.com” website is always smart for professionals looking to boost their visibility and credibility. Just remember to keep the website professional.

7. Outfit of the day
Do you have a killer eye for fashion? Start a blog that keeps track of your daily outfits. People love looking at what others are wearing and how they’re wearing it. The bonus is that you’ll get to bring your fashionable outfits to more than just the people you pass on the street.

8. Local reviews (restaurants, events, etc.)
Consider writing reviews about the local venues and attractions your visit. If you go to a lot of restaurants, events, or anything else worth writing about. Think of it as your own personal Yelp!

9. Photography, even if amateur

Do you enjoy photography? Even if you just take a few photos every day (and yes, even if they’re only on your iPhone), put the photos online for others to view. Just remember to copyright them if you’re concerned about others using them. Check out Creative Commons for free licensing where you can control who can use your images and how.
