is my amateur radio call. I first became licensed in 1958. I became
interested in Google Sites when I created a site for our new amateur
radio digital repeater system. The call of the repeater is W8SHI. The
site is at w8shi.net. I have other sites here and here.
have been involved with creating and maintaining websites for a long
time. I don't consider myself an expert but I keep learning. I had never
purchased my own domain name but after creating a Google Site I decided
to try it. As I often do I looked to see if there was a help forum for
sites and when I found it I started reading the posts. I found all of
the information I needed by reading the answers from contributors like
Steegle. After getting the domain up and running I kept visiting the
forum and noticed people were asking the same questions over and over,
like "Why is my new website not in Google Search?". So I started
answering questions and then got recommended to be a "Top Contributor".
Mostly I just repeat what I have learned from Steegle, BCJ19, Philridout
and others, and I often get in over my head and have to ask one of them
for help. But it is fun!

I am starting to compile a list of words that people use in forums...words that don't exist or that are used incorrectly. I think it is sad that if such words are used enough they become a part of the language.
alot A lot in merchandising is a certain quantity of items offered for sale. People seem to use "alot" to mean a large quantity of something but it is not a word.
alls "alls I have to do today is..." I guess people mean "all that I have to do...".
your I know "your" is a good word, but it does not mean "you are".
