discuss website building tools. what did you find? here’s my research:
cargo – $99 per year or $13/month. looks like domains are extra. no obvious blog capabilities. looks like most people here are linking to tumblr for blogging.
squarespace – $144 per year or $16/month. combined portfolio and blog options. custom domains.
virb – $10/month. combined portfolio and blog options. custom domains.
wix – $132 per year. free domain for one year. a few combined portfolio and blog options. may be possible to add blog pages but not sure.
and others. it is imperative to know the pros and cons of each of the many tools out there for web publishing, which we will discuss in class.
