    Building a web site 4th Mar 18 at 6:28 PM
    Hi all.
    I have just come from Hospital where I have undergone a total knee replacement and now have time on my hands.
    I have been keen to have my own website for a while now and thought this would be the perfect time to go ahead and create one. I have seen many TV adverts for these so called free to make sites but are they any good?
    I phoned someone weeks before I went in hospital and he replied just after my admission and wanted almost £500 for making one. A bit steep I thought.
    So, which one would suit and which are the easiest to make and understand. I'm not a computer wizard but I understand the basics.
    All I want is to record my travels and place a few pics on it. I'm also a real and craft beer buff and write blogs about the places we've been.

    Kind regards Jeff.

    I've used Wix and Weebly. They're free and very easy to use. Try them to see what you can do.

    Don't harass a hippie. You'll get bad karma.

    Hi Jeff? Why not just create a wordpress site? These are free. Think if you prefer you can also add your own domain.
