A website for people living in, migrating to, or on holiday in the state of Victoria in Australia. It offers carefully
selected links covering everything from what's on, attractions, where to shop
and sports clubs to wifi hotspots, job and property search. It has a special section related to migrating to Australia and
settling in Victoria. Victoria StartPage publishes a newsletter and is updated regularly with new links.
Victoria StartPage aims to provide a central location for links to all of your regularly used
websites. It also aims to make it easier for you to find websites that provide the information you need, or websites that will help you enhance your
quality of life.
The information available on the web is vast, sometimes difficult and time consuming to find, and
often overwhelming. Victoria StartPage does the work for you - websites are located and reviewed, and only if they are useful and of a sufficient
quality are they provided to you.
The website links provided by Victoria StartPage are organised into logical groups and presented on individual categorised pages. Arranging the information in
this way makes the search process quicker and easier, and keeps scrolling up and down to a minimum.
There are start pages for Australia-wide and
there are start pages for most of the large Australian cities - why then can I not find one for Victoria?
If there is a start page for Victoria, I would however, not be happy personally with the content, if it compares with
the average start page. Not that the average start page is bad, it is just not what I am looking for. I would want to see
only a very selective collection of links.
From this thought came the idea of creating my own collection of links,
my own Victoria Start Page. And why keep it to myself?
The first version of Victoria StartPage
was created using a free start page supplied by Startsuper.nl. This provided a simple
solution that was quick to implement and easy to maintain. As the number of links increased and the start page grew
in size, I realised that it was becoming difficult for people to locate what they were searching for. In addition to
that, I wanted to provide other functionality - I wanted something more.
It was time to learn how to create my own website.
I hope that you enjoy using Victoria StartPage as much as I have enjoyed creating it!
