Writers' websites: easy platforms and good examples?

I'm looking for platforms for professional writers to build their own websites--like 4ormat, just not as image-focused--and working examples of such. [more inside]

Box spring or wood slats?

We just got a nice new mattress. It came with a box spring. We were using our old mattress on an IKEA bed (the Redalen, which I guess they don't sell anymore) with their cheap wooden slats, the Sultan Lade, as support. All things being equal, we'd stick with the IKEA bed and slats. But are all things equal? Are there advantages to using the box spring instead of the slats?

Namefilter, gift economy edition.

I´m currently designing (on paper, while I look for a person with the tech skills to build it) a web platform for an alternate, moneyless economy. I have a working name for it, but some people have read into it something different from what I intended, so I´m looking for a new name. More details after the jump. [more inside]

There can only be one, frame that is..

So, two bad backs need a solution. Has anyone tried two twin long mattresses in a king platform bed frame? One of the details is that the mattresses will be of different heights from each other. Would it simply be better to have two separate twin bed frames and push them together? How have you solved the two bad backs, two mattress type problem? [more inside]

Looking for Platforms/Positions, Campaign Summaries, Judicial Ratings & Tiny-Position Info to Help Me Cast my Cook County Ballot

I’m a resident of Chicago (Cook County, Illinois). I’m very much not a fan of politics, but that lack of enthusiasm doesn’t extend to not voting – I’d still like to make an educated choice when casting my ballot, but without re-engaging in the political blogosphere, etc.. So, could you help me do my due diligence by helping me find websites that would contain the three particular kinds of information you'll see me describe inside/after the break? [more inside]
