Valerie Jones and Website Option

I was going to post a link to Foliotwist and Empty Easel. I have pointed to Empty Easel before as a helpful site for artists business, how to articles and other advice. Foliotwist is their new site for creating your website. It includes a blog and newsletter.

Some of the pluses seems to be that you can customize the site to fit your style, they put instant Buy Now buttons for PayPal that you don't have to mess with. Cost wise, not too bad. If you sign up for 6 months you get one free month and for a year you get 3 free months. For a year about $22.50 a month.

While looking at artists that have a website there I was reminded that Valerie Jones, one of my Fine Art Friends, has her website there. Take a look at her site and beautiful colored pencil artwork. Valerie's other blog on Blogger is here at http://www.valeriejonesart.com/

Hope this helps some of you that have been wondering how to do a website with little cost to you and a lot of assistance in getting it done. :)

Scroll down for earlier post today.

Teresa, you are most welcome. fineartamerica.com has free websites, too. You just don't have choices in how it looks, but you can put up as many images as you care to put up.

Hi Jo,

Thanks for linking to my website. Foliotwist is great and very easy to set up. I've had lots of compliments on the website.
