so i'm just wondering which really good, FREE, personal websites are out there today....i've seen plenty of great sites from fellow CA artists and i'm wondering if i can make one that's just as professional looking as all of the others.....
i know wikipedia is a free site and i know the structure quite well...but are there any other good sites?
if you know a good one, then it would be really appreciated to promote it...
The ideal choice is to make it yourself. You have total control over what it will be like. I managed to make it my project for a course unrelated to art. So win win situation for me.
you could always make a blog type portfolio for free. Check out Blogger or Wordpress, you can sign up for one for free and they will host it. They look decent enough and allow for a bit of customisation. Plus you can host images there, recieve comments from viewers if you wish, and upload content from a simple, easy-to-use control panel.
This would be a lot better than say, getting a website built by a free 'pagebuilder' and hosting it on a free site where they stick ads all over the place.
Hope this helps.
thanks everyone, you are all awesome!
Yeah... I think if you're determined to go the free route it's better just to make a blog. Certainly nobody is going to take you seriously with some crappy Geocities (do they even still exist?) or Yahoo page with ads everywhere.
I pay 130 bucks a year for hosting.....not free, but not expensive either.
If you are just intimidated by setting up your own thing I can tell you I am as dumb as they come with technical things and if I can set it up anyone can.
It's all about finding a host (which I am sure many people here can suggest whatever they are using) and then registering your domain name (which often is provided for free by the host depending on where you go).
I used to do the "home.comcast.net/blahblahblah" bullcrap because it was "free" and having my own domain and having it hosted by someone not connected to my ISP has been a godsend.
Please....put your pennies together and just do it up right if you care about your art at all.
(but if you just do not have the means, I also recommend something simple like Blogger)
Blogs are great, but as Dusty mentioned, web hosting is pretty cheap. The hard part is making a good website.
thanks again everyone, i just joined up on blogger....
hopefully other CA members find this thread useful....
thanks jimmy, i'm currently making a wordpress blog. and in my opinion it is better than Blogger. i like the control panel better and it's easier to use. i'll have to post the link when i have it up and running fully.
i dont mean to sound like a party pooper but i think you are speaking with a spambot
