I had lunch with Janie Hermann today and she told me about Weebly. Weebly claims to be the easiest way to create an publish a website – and I have to say it’s one of the easiest out there – if you don’t know any better 😉 What do I mean? Well, I know my HTML and my CSS, so I like to have control, but for those who have no (or minimal) web skills – this tool is for them!!
Weebly lets you drag and drop widgets/page pieces onto the screen, change the layout, change the template and publish you page – bing-bang-boom – you’re done!
On possible use for Weebly (that Janie mentioned – gotta give her the credit) is if you just need a website for a little while – for something small like a family reunion or a presentation – why not create a quick Weebly page (and it is quick) and use that?
The best part is that Weebly will host your site ad-free for free! Also, if you already have a domain name – or have your own domain name – Weebly will host it for free (you just buy the domain).
Sounds like a pretty handy tool and something to keep and eye on.
