#1 Create a New Writer Document & Write Article Text on your Home Computer
Because Microsoft Word adds a huge amount of hidden and harmful coding to Word documents, it is best to create your web pages using a free word processor called Libre Office. This free program is available for the Microsoft Windows operating system, the Apple Mac operating system and the Linux operating system. Libre Writer is also useful for compressing the file sizes of images. Ideally, this should be done on a Linux computer – which comes with Libre Office. But you can get a free copy of Libre Office for any computer at the following link: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/
