    You can make a petty good blogger website, using many third party templates available on the Internet.

    Are they compatible enough? I will check out some and see. Thanks for mentioning them.

    WordPress? It is free!

    It is but if you wish to add your own custom domain, you have to pay an annual fee. Otherwise it is good.

    I have Paid accounts with both Webs and Wix: Unlike Webs I find that when I try to change a Page Background on Wix it changes all of my backgrounds except the Home Page. Anyone else experiencing this oddity.

  6. You get what you pay for (even though you really can’t beat WordPress.) All free hosting services are so restricted that you will eventually get annoyed and go for a very cheap “hosted” account (or even host your own with WAMP/LAMP) where you can install your own WordPress, Joomla (which is actually hard for beginners) or HTML templates. Not only that, you have access to your own, and usually unlimited email accounts.

    If you have your own business (including working from home, and I know your article says personal, but it needs to be said) or you are a company, nothing says unprofessional and cheap like a WIX or free hosted site. Blogger is so dated now that it’s laughed at along with Live Journal and MySpace. I for one will avoid any business with a free site or a business with an email address ending in @gmail, @yahoo and the likes. If you’re not willing to spend a really small amount or have something looking professional and not like it was made by a “know it all” family member, then what effort will you put into a business?

    So it’s actually worth $2.50 a year, get a domain name and get a hosted account with cPanel/Plesk or like I mentioned, use a WAMP Server on your own machine, which is free.

    With these options, you have full control and you’re not reliant on having to upgrade or suffer with restricting tools.

    If though, you are just wanting a simple personal site, I’d still go for a cheap, paid hosted account because there will come a time when you need to do more and have more control over your content.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Yes, they look pretty much professional. You have to tweak a bit using HTML and CSS to cater your needs. There are various sites who offer really good tempts, free of cost.
