My daughter who is in college and is a very polished writer. She will be writing new content for my site. It will include a page for each city. What I don't know how to do is put my website header together with the newly written content onto my website. Does any one of you guys want the job? Or is it easy for me to do myself?

With the right software it's pretty easy. But you'll need something that can write HTML and then you'll need an FTP manager.

I have two programs I use for HTML, Easy Web Editor and Eversoft First Page. I guess Dream Weaver is another program that's out there, sure there are hundreds.

And my FTP manager is WiseFTP 6.1. They're probably up to ver 7 or 8 now.

You'll need to know the specific account name/address and the password for access.

Dude! If you remember I said I wasn't happy the Bengals lost but I was glad the chargers won. If that's not showing love to the a Bengals I don't know what is. Now I don't expect you to do it for free so what's your price?

I will do it for him, if he wants though.

Goto add new user, add me as editor. I can log in and pop it down for you. Or your person of choice . lol.

You can do it on your computer and share the screen with him via Skype. They try to get you to upgrade to premium but you can do it with a basic account.

Remote login works too but it can be laggy and I'm not sure Mike want's you logging into his pc.

Maybe I will take you up on that. My daughter is going to write the pages in the next couple days. Can I ask one more question. How much content (words) does it take to make a webage? Or is that's stupid question?

Www.Mlwconstruction.com.

I've already had the home page content rewritten, and the about us page. She hasn't put it on the site yet. I paid for that. I was just trying to save some money and add some more content myself.
