Check out my newly redesigned GoDaddy Website
If you are considering starting your own website, I high recommend using GoDaddy. Their new Version 7 website builder is very easy to use. As a writer, I need a comprehensive platform for my clients and readers to go to.
For me, my house is in NE Illinois, but my home is on the World Wide Web.
