Which Online website builder should I use for me?
I was looking at SquareSpace but I am not sure if its right for me.
Actually, I am a little lost on what I am looking for.
I am a professional athlete looking to finally create a website. I have a FaceBook, twitter, etc. with a big following but my sponsors/supporters have been recommending I build a website.
I'd like to do it on my own because it seems like an interesting project for me. I read that Squarespace has a pretty simple and easy user face which is why it caught my attention.
I agree, if you don't plan a static site, (and regular updates do help retain a following), you would want to use a blog platform, which allows selecting design themes, customizing functionality and add content with no coding.
Odds are a free host like Google's blogger.com or Wordpress.com would do as long as you have a custom domain name, which will allow you to transfer your address to a different host at some later date with minimal disruption. Your total had cost could be just $12 a year.
Blogger.com has no paid upgrades, like other free sites, including wordpress.com.
try a google seach for site:blogspot.com intitle:"professional athlete"
to get a feel for what the blogs can look like. (These will all be ones using the free subdomain name)
For my projects that involve personal websites like yours I usually www.webzai.com
It gives a really great level of design freedom but you still don't need any professional knowledge to build a good looking website with it.
