I'd like to post some of my writing samples, all in one place, on a permanent site of its own. Someone else's site that I have used in the past has shut down. I'm trying to get some opinions and thoughts on what others think might be the best.
I can see advantages to using a blog, and also some for having my own website.
It is great to get the feedback on projects here, but I would like to have a place that companies can go to and see the samples, including a short form, and fully fleshed out.
Any thoughts?

(I would like to see this site more active again, too, and will try to be more involved in helping that along. How's everyone doing?)

A "blog" site can be much more. Free sites like Blogger allow you to not only do the blog entries but they also allow for permanent "pages". As well, you can get your own domain and apply it to your free space.

So unless you need tons of bandwidth and something specific in a website I'd recommend going with Blogger or Wordpress.

I think the best thing about something like blogger is you can set up a kind of community of regular visitors/readers and post on other peoples blogs etc to get noticed without actively plugging your page, which irritates everyone. Most people show their own followers on their blogs, so by following others you also get hits.

I have a website as well as my blog, which I use basically as a one-stop place to easily access my blog (because it regrettably has an awkward url), my shop and some specific portfolio work, contact details, and a bit of info about me. It's the link I'd give to clients. http://josephfells.co.uk But that's more because my blog is about my own self development, discoveries... It's a digital sketchbook that others can join in with. It's not a showcase.

You can get a blogger but have your own url, eg. wokcreative.com or whatever. No idea how much it costs, but from reg123 you can get a .co.uk space for £6 for two years, which is what I did.

Sounds good, too. Thanks to all for the input.

(Couldn't get onto this board to get back to anyone for a few days.)
