Examples

I've lately been building most of these sites on Blogger, since:

(a) They allow multiple user IDs for the website, which means the owner can have one or more login IDs, and I can have my own login ID to assist them with editing.  When they no longer need my assistance, they reduce my privileges or remove my privileges entirely.

(b) They allow you to easily BACK UP the website to a ".xml" file.

(c) The blogs have the financial backing of Google -- i.e. more stability hopefully.

(d) They don't limit the number of websites you can build.  Weeble limits you to two, and Yola limits you to five.

Weebly

You can see other examples built by other people in the "changing box" at the bottom center of the Weebly.com home page.

Comments:

This is my preferred site at the moment for appearance.  It's limited, but simple to use.
  • It seems to have less control of the text than Yola.
  • I can't find any way to change the font type.

Yola

This website,  'BilltownWeb.com', is an example built by me, using Yola.  You can see examples built by other people on the 'Yola Featured Sites' page.

Microsoft Office Small Business

These pages work nice -- EXCEPT after adding Google Analytics code, the pages seem to have a tendency to "hang" when loaded with Internet Explorer.  Some example these are linked on the "Example Page on MS Office web page", but be WARNED, this page may "hang" if you're using Internet Explorer (use FireFox).

Using the blogs as a web page is not quite as simple as Weebly and Yola, but they should be considered for a group's web page for the following reasons:
  • You can give multiple people access to the blog - each with their own login ID and password.  You can later remove their privileges, if they no longer need access to update it.
  • You can set it up so a particular person has privileges to edit only one or two pages, so they cannot accidentally disturb anything on the rest of the website.
  • Information can be copied or moved from one page to another.  The whole blog can be easily backed up to to an "xml file", and parts or all of it can be copied to another blog site.
