Looking for somewhere to call your virtual home? I know there’s a blogger in you you somewhere…or perhaps you just want to rant about the current political escapades, or even write reviews for the current badass technology that will blow the socks off your readers. How can you do this? Well I’m glad you asked. Time to build your own website! So many to choose from these days, some complicated, some not. However, I may just have the solution for you. This free website builder, Wix, is your shining light from above. In just mere minutes, you can sign up for your free website, tweak your page to look just how you like it, then publish it online in a snap!
I’ll sketch over a few of the interesting things that Wix offers, just to give you an idea of what you’ll be getting into when you head on over there. First of all, building your website here is completely free. That’s right, you don’t have to sink a single greenback into it. That’s not to say there are several options in which there are images, functions and services that you can purchase while building your website, but for the purposes of this post, you can choose a multitude of free options within your building process, and still come out with a styling and functional page that you would be proud to publish.
After getting your account, you are immediately dropped into a Wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) interface, where you can choose your overall template to work with, once you choose that, you have a multitude of options to add, remove, tweak the template to your liking, such as changing images, background, text boxes and much more. Write up a title for your first blog post/review/rant, add some text and you can publish it right away. Once you get to the point of saving and publishing, the interface will ask you to name your website “http://www.wix.com/”yournamehere””, where you can host your website on Wix servers, or you can even name your own domain if you choose. That’s it for the quick and dirty version. You now have a place to call your own to do with what you please.
With over 58 million current users, Wix isn’t a bad place to call home. I’ve viewed quite a few of the sites that people have created using this service, and I am quite impressed. As with any Wysiwyg service, the more work you put into it, the more you will get out of it. Just to give you an idea how the whole thing works, jog on over to a web search engine of your choice, and you can find a step by step video showing the whole process.
If you like to watch the SuperBowl, you may recall the popular Wix ads with the #itsthateasy hashtag. These ads were ingenious in my opinion, and what were drew me to want to review the website in the first place. If you haven’t seen them, hang out here for a while and check them out. You won’t be disappointed.
So overall, I would recommend this website builder if you’re looking for a free and easy to use interface to create a classy website of your own. Not too shabby if you ask me. Go have some fun!
