How To Create The Perfect '90s Website

Do you still remember your Angelfire password?

1. Choose your host.

We don't need to pay for space! That's why we have GeoCities, Angelfire, Tripod, and AOL Hometown. The more ads, the better. And think of a really good username that everyone will remember, like "XoXoSoccerGurl97XoXo."

2. Pick your website's topic.

Even better if it's a fan page for a movie, band, or TV show. Or just make it all about yourself and the 101 things no one else cares about, like your fear of clowns and love of Jenny McCarthy.

4. Pick your favorite font and color.

Make sure it's really difficult to read against the tiled background. Preferably, it should be Comic Sans MS with aLtErNaTiNg CaPs, plenty of exclamation marks, and random underlining and italicization.

7. Make sure your text moves.

Whether it scrolls or appears across the screen like a typerwriter, it makes your website 100% more awesome.

9. Let's add some music!

MIDIs were so much better than MP3s when it came to musical accompaniment.

12. Add a website counter and guest book.

Refresh your site every few minutes to make visitors think your website is soooooo popular (just in case the dollz , flaming GIFs, and web awards didn't convince them already). No one signs your guest book because it's always broken.

13. Make sure everyone knows you're still under construction.

Your website is just as important as a big hole in the road! If your page of poems still isn't up, let your readers know with a construction cone image. Now they can sleep at night.

14. Update your website for a few weeks, then forget about it for the next 15 years.

Be reminded about said website when your date says he Googled you and found your Backstreet Boys fan page from 1998.
