Hi - I've had a couple of websites constructed for me in the past and found it a pain to have to get someone else to change images etc... and as a photographer I'm wanting changes quite frequently.


With my recent website I decided to do the old "have a go myself" - which always has pros & cons... I was going to use Squarespace, but it seemed they also do the hosting - which I didn't want - so I ended up using Mobirise -


It's totally free, so you're reliant on updates as they see fit, but it wasn't bad to work with and altho' there are all sorts of paid themes, they don't seem to offer too much more than the free basic package.


There are a couple of funky things that seem to happen with mobile viewing, but pretty minor format anomalies really... and may be my own fault... the site at the link below is what I've put together...

Wordpress is powerful - but also requires quite a bit of support (I use WP).


It's not simple.


I recently tried and was pretty impressed.


You can sign up (free account) and create websites (up to 10 in fact ) with various free templates.


You can copy a site you made up and change templates to see what you like the look of.


All work is done via an online/browser page interface that is easy to use (no software to download).


You can publish your free site(s) (the name will be (where mysite is the name you give a site)) and have a look at it on different devices etc.


You can unpublish it to take it down etc.


If you were happy with a site called then you could just stay with the free version - but it has a weebly ad at the bottom.


If you want to hook a site up to a domain name you upgrade that site (~$110USD per year).


If you have some graphics (photos logos etc then you could just load them up to weebly and re-use them).


Weebly reckon they have around 45 million customers - so it is quite good.


I think is probably quite similar.
