No matter what profession you’re in, or even if you have no profession and are just interested in having something cool and user friendly out there on the web, Wix is a great place to start.

Most are FREE, but a couple are “pay-after-trail” if you find them worthy.

I had originally intended to blog about each of these sites and tools individually, but lost the argument with myself.  Father time just won’t permit it.  So I decided that having them all in a single location would be easier for me to find later, and probably more appreciated and useful to friends and viewers.  Thanks and Enjoy!
