type and save" process, which gives
me more time for my writing and marketing
focus. Plus, they're offering Domain name,
WebMail, visitor traffic reporting and
I personally really enjoy this easy new
way to build my own new site. It just might
be a great alternative for you, too. Definitely
worth a peek anyway.
