Creating a good web page design is an everyday task for a web designer but for the rest of the web community this task is a head-ache and a huge problem, unless of-course you decide to use one of the many templates available on-line which in turn help you design a web page that is not so good and the least creative.
On line there are many tutorials that assist you to design a good web page from scratch but the choice is very hard, as a matter of fact you probably don't even need one of those, instead all you need is a good sense of design and an easy to use HTML editor in the likes of Dream Weaver and someone to guide you through the basics.
Simplicity is the key to a good web design for your web page because a web page that is simple is clean, easy to navigate through, and convenient for the human eye. Also for the background it is best to use a light colour and on it a dark text, preferably black text on a white background.
Usage of images should be minimized to just as many as you really need, as too many images in the wrong places will cause the page to load slowly and make it harder for your visitor to find your content.
Make your paragraphs short and your sentences straight to the point. Remove anything that you already said before, and make sure that what you are writing is your own and is also true.
