Personal Use Websites
For a personal website for something like an upcoming event or a special occassion, Wix has you covered. Their features and add-on apps should be more than sufficent for anything you want to do.
And since a presonal website doesn’t typically need a lot of extra features, it would usually fall into the lower price end.
Without a doubt, Wix has become better for blogging since they have improved their builder’s SEO capabilities dramatically. This is very important since every blogger wants their content to rank well in the search engines.
For the novice, Wix is a better option than WordPress. It allows you to drag-and-drop build and offers many blogging features and templates. They also ranks high in help and support whereas WordPress only offers help forums.
However, Weebly is one platform, in particular, worth comparing to Wix. Comparatively, they bring a lot to the table for blogging and their pricing is in line with Wix plans.
