Where did you get the site design template at? I'm interested in starting a basic blog about my riding adventures and like the simplicity of yours and it looks easy to update. I'm a web developer but I'd rather start with something and add on.
The one I recommended Kev and Simon while in my house in Nicargua and that they are using:
- Blogging Software, Business Blogs & Blog Services at TypePad.com
We are currently using the medium (?) version which cost around U$8.99/month. they have an advance version for $15/month that gives you a lot more flexibility.
- If you are a web developer and have your own server then the other famous one in WordPress.com » Get a Free Blog Here
which is "free" but at the end of the day it cost as much as typepad. word press has ton more functions and templates - but u need to be webdeveloper to be able to use all the extra features.. I have blogs with both of them and for my skills and money i prefer typepad.com
- for those that don't want to spend money blogspot/blogger are free versions but very limited capabilities
- what i like with typepad and wordpress is that you can do Domain Mapping so it shows your domain name and not blogspot. so you are creating publicity just for yourself
- to buy the domains i have found that GoDaddy.com is the cheapest one and make it pretty easy to do the domain mapping.
- to create the banners that Kev and Simon have and that i used to have i recomend DaFont.com. lot's of cool fonts. you need to download the font, added it to your fonts in control pannel and you are set to go.
- i recomend statcounter.com for keeping tracks of your visitiors....
as web developer you probably know more than i do - i just learned last year with trial and error.
as you build your site don't forget to put a link back to me SalCar Nicaragua: Healthcare, Motorcycles, Adventure
i got recommended typepad by WorldRider
check his site which is a lot better than ours!
feel free to contact me if you have other questions...
