I have a static website--a free one, but my domain name is attached. I also have a free blogger blog. Blogger has the option to have pages, which are static like a website, so essentially all my content is doubled. My blog also feeds to FB and my Amazon author page.

Blogger has an active community of writers in my genre, so I find it very practical for promo and for keeping up with writer friends(which is also a kind of promo because other readers read your comments and click through). It links me to many of my writer sites and I use it as my homepage.

My blogger is also fed to a triberr tribe(twitter). I get a couple thousand hits a month on the blog, but less than 500 monthly on the website. I don't think I even need the website.
