I'm working on my website now (doing a DIY) I've decided to go with wix...seems easy enough. Wanted to see if anyone in CCland would mind posting a link to their site...I'm having such a tough time and need some inspiration. Since I come here for cake inspiration I figured you guys could give me website inspiration as well. When mine is done I will post for comments. TFS

I also made my business's web site myself (from scratch with HTML)...I would advise against using wix, as Flash-based web sites tend to be frustrating from a usability perspective and difficult to navigate. Instead, I would put together a mockup on paper and hire a local college student studying web design to implement it for you.

I used the yahoo templates, and it was really easy. I like it because I can change it as much as I want in my own without having to call someone to do it for me on their schedule.

I don't know if wix is a flash site, but flash isn't supported on a lot of mobile devices, and google doesn't read it well either. It might affect your page rankings if you have a flash site, and some people won't be able to see it depending on what device they're using to go online.

I purchased a bludomain template and had a web designer cousin do the rest in exchange for free birthday cakes. My site is a flash website, but it doesn't seem to be too big of an issue. I did the do it yourself thing (Intuit) and couldn't get it to work.
