My wife announced this morning that she wanted to self publish a gardening column on a web site, and asked me what it would cost and how to do it. That’s what I get now that she’s just retired. I haven’t set up a new web page in years, and I’m not as familiar as I should be about new options. Going with what I know, I was looking at getting her domain at godaddy, then a DH account, and maybe setting up Wordpress or one of the other CMSs for her. I’m more of a roll-yer-own guy, so I’ve only played around with the one-click CMSs on subdomains of my DH account. I don’t wanted to get sucked into lots of support time on her site when I’m in my office getting paid to do real work. (Like I’m doing now) (Maybe I could call it training). But then I saw the DreamPress accounts. $20/mo, domain name included, 24/7 support (could save me a lot of calls for help). Seems pretty intriguing.
But what about some of those other “build yer own website” outfits? How do they stack up? I know nothing about them, except I’m bombarded with adds on the web and TV from them. So bombarded I’ve tunes them all out. I can’t even name one now.
