I'm not really a tech geek when it comes to web design or web development so I just created my website using the hPage website builder. It's been easy to use for me so far and I have no complaints. I sometimes use the slideshow gallery for photos and I also host my photos there. Blogging is pretty much streamlined. I like it there because the interface makes me laser focused somehow whenever I write a blog post. If anyone is interested to create a website or create a blog with the hPage Website Builder, here is their link:
