I'm looking for a new service to set up my own website and blog. The one I currently use offers a limited amount of options such as a way to collect email addresses. Is anyone using a service that they really like and would recommend? It doesn't have to be free.

Very nice Karen! I ended up going with a WordPress site. It took a bit of time to get everything set up, but it has a lot of features.

Looks terrific! I didn't realize WordPress had the options you've utilized. I use WordPress for a site I've created for Curves club owners that I do some graphic design work for and have found it works well for that. I need to look at it a little further, though, as your site showed me a variety of options I haven't implemented.

Lori, your site looks great! Well done!

Your site does look great, Lori. Didn't you have a video website makeover from my son, Scott Fox, a while back? I see a lot of his principles in evidence -- in particular a smiling photo of you on the home page (I mean, a lot of the "sell" is the personal nature of our work) and the email collector on the right hand side. Necessary because you never know when people will want to hear from you. Nice job.

Yes I did! It was very helpful.

I went around and around with hosting plans before I found GoogleSites. Free hosting for individuals... it took me two days from scratch to live website. Some options are limited, but forced me to keep the site clean and uncluttered. Check out my site at to see what a rank novice can do with GoogleSites.
