Not it is time for you to build a very basic website to showcase your personal information, such as your name, photo, interests, and hobbies. Create a website with several pages, including a homepage, a page for your interests, a page for your hobbies, and a page for your background. You can also add a page for your contact information. Here are some steps that you can follow to build your website:
