I need to go ahead and make a website while I'm not working to house various creative projects. I'm not opposed to paying for a host, but would prefer a pretty easy WYSIWYG editor to be included. Y'all are a generally really creative, resourceful group of people. What host would you recommend?

But it's just a blogsite, right? I need to be able to upload files and make pages within a site.

I'm not sure that I know about your webpage? I must have assumed you have one, but I'm kinda thoughtless in a tunnel vision sort of way. If you send me the URL, I'll put you on my blogroll.

For free stuff, I've seen a lot of people using Weebly (I think that Sage uses it for Sweet Candy Distro's site now, but I'm not 100% sure.) I've never used it, so I don't have an expert opinion on its functionality, but for a free hosting service they don't seem all that bad (I think they also have templates that you can edit/build on.)

I've only worked with two hosting companies before -- Laughing Squid, a small-time hosting service that catered towards sites owned by individuals (though they were kind of pricey compared to "big name" hosting companies) and bluehost. I had fine experiences with both. I don't remember whether or not they came with an editor, but I downloaded a free editing program called Taco HTML that I still use today (it's really nice because it lets you preview sites as you edit your html.)

Hopefully this was at least a little helpful!

That was REALLY helpful. Thanks. I'll check all the services/programs you suggested out.

I've used Yahoo for over 5 years, and I have never had a problem with it. They have a good page designer, if you need it. It's not free, though. I pay $11 per month.

A site to stay away from: GoDaddy. I had to use it once when designing for a client, and I wanted to go to GoDaddy's office and punch their manager in the face. WORST website ever.
