    What was your inspiration

    Hello everyone, call me Viper. I am in the process of creating my own series of sites. I have one outlined but its not really my ideal website and i worry that i would not be able to keep it up and eventually loose interest. I want to make a site but i just cant figure out what to really do it as.


    so...what was your inspiration for your own sites? Also when you got the idea how long did it take till you had it all set up?

    thank you,

    Viper

    We all find our inspiration in different places. I myself find inspiration for different sites in different ways. From concept to layout I find myself looking at numerous sources to complete the initial idea.

    Hello, call me Cobra.

    Sites take a lot of work and maintence to keep alive.
    First of all why do you want to design websites, what is the purpose of them?

    If you want a design portfolio then build websites with design themes that interest you(snakes or whatever).

    If you want to make money out of then, then you have a few options, ecommerce, affiliate/contract advertising, social networking. If you have no money to invest then you would be best off building some basic sites with some adsense ads.

    Then once you have chosen your revenue strategy you have to think about what interests you, but more importantly, what kind of site you feel will be succesful, which is where you think about market strategy.

    If you build some sites without thinking about any of this then they will probably not work. First define the purpose of your site and then how you will achieve it through the site. Follow the process for each website and you will have it.

    I use CSS remix (currently under maintenance) for a lot of inspiration. I also use FWA (Im personally again full flash websites, but there is a lot of inspirational designs to be gawped at on there ). I also use Web Creme and Sitepoint.com. I find a lot of member's sites to be inspirational at times . There are far too many good inspirational resources to list.

    He've said it all I think!

    As you are a newbie in the industry, feel free to search and search... use keywords that you think best describes your dream site. Then draw your layout and plan from there. Once you have a general plan, go back here and post. Most likely, we designers & developers can help you from there.

    Your inspiration needs to be your mind. Follow your dreams like all founders did: Google, Yahoo, Facebook ...
