I’m a big believer in simple websites that users can maintain–I wrote about how to set one up in less than two hours. Snarky comments from Ralph aside, it’s a great way to get onto the web and add that much more credibility to any business you’re doing.
Blogger and WordPress.com are the two big options for easy, free web sites. Blogger gives you more freedom in most ways, but until recently, came with a big downside–you couldn’t create standalone pages (for contact info, ‘about us’, etc)–everything had to be a post. That’s changed: blogger now lets you create up to 10 stand alone pages.
