Step 1: An Idea
Now I am not saying go and steal someone else's page. What I am saying is Research, Research and Research! If you do find a page that you really like ( let's keep it real here, it happens) and decide to use someone else's hard work then make sure you change it enough to not be a mirror web site! Hold on, hold on! I know what you are thinking ...I do not condone any type of piracy! DON'T DO IT! I do however, accept that a large percentage of the internet content is "RECYCLED" in large part with thanks to Google. If you see something you like, learn to do it yourself instead of copying code ( hopefully, that is why you are here) from another page and publishing it.
