Greta Powell introduces some useful services and tools to build your online presence


Iseem to have received lots of questions recently regarding creating websites, websites for free, web services for writers and so forth, so now seems a good time to take a brief look at a few useful services out there. In essence most of these work in much the same way, you simply drag and drop or upload content into a pre-designed template.


BoldGrid is not as well known or publicised as other web template services but it is both easy to use and quick to learn. Those who already use Wordpress will be familiar with it from the start as it has the same look and feel as WP; the services are linked. BoldGrid is actually a set of plugins, created and developed by a company called InMotion Hosting, that sit above Wordpress making the whole process of creating the site easier. They use a category-based interface with a drag and drop controls which is ideal for anyone looking to get the benefits of this type of site without a steep learning curve.
