I get approached frequently with questions about how to start a blog or how to make a blog more personalized, more professional and more aesthetically pleasing overall. While I’ve been able to kind of get people aimed in the right direction, I usually have to direct them to my personal IT support person and web designer….aka, my husband. I’m pitifully dependent on his brilliance since his desk is approximately 2.74 feet from mine, but I realize that most new bloggers or soon-to-be bloggers don’t have that luxury.
That’s where page.ly comes in.
Page.ly is a brilliant service that provides the fastest, easiest way to set up a very professional-looking site with a personalized domain. It takes care of the hosting, setup and steps that confuse those of us that aren’t as gifted in the ways of the web. Page.ly gives you the ease and convenience of wordpress.com with the freedom and options that come along with wordpress.org. They offer a large selection of premium WordPress themes for you to choose from so that you get just the looking you’re wanting. With a page.ly account, you can achieve professional quality and functionality on your site without spending a big chunk of change on hiring a pro.
Page.ly takes care of you. Period. And it’s cheap! Starting at around $15 a month, you get your domain (or use one you already have), hosting and setup. Right there, you’re saving money and not wasting your valuable time digging through confusing files, figuring out FTP, etc. They do all the work for you…in seriously a matter of minutes. Seriously. Take a minute of your life to watch this video.
See how easy and fast? You can literally set up an account, build your site and make you first blog post before you even finish your morning coffee.
To that, I say: Word.
So, for those of you who have been considering starting a blog but are too intimidated…..here’s your ticket to ride. Page.ly, baby. Page.ly. And for those of you that have a blog, but don’t love it…Page.ly.
