build simple web page

Any services out there like Google Page Creator?

So Google Page Creator is not going to let the masses in for a while. It sounded like such a slick, simple tool for creating a fussing with formating, hosting, etc.etc. I've used Blogger before to just throw together a basic page of info (block party invite, community event, etc.) but would love something just as easy without the blog format.

You could try Writeboard

If you are willing to spend a little money, ($8.95 mo) Yahoo Small Business has Sitebuilder, which is similar in style, but has many more features. I've used it for my wife's art gallery for over 3 years with no problems so far.

Infogami just launched. It is free.

Don't assume that google page creator is closed for long. I read about it last week, tried a couple of times for a day or two, and it was closed. Then I got up Saturday, said what the hell, and gave it a try. No problem. I used several gmail accounts to register for several pages.

BTW, it's so easy to use that it's ridiculous.

Yahoo Geocities is free and still running, though I have no idea how good it is.

Incidentally, Google pages is essentially trying to compete with Geocities, which was the biggest free-homepage site last time I checked (though that may have been many years ago).

Geocities is a bit clunky, but it gets the job done. The interface hasn't been updated in years though, and I'm hoping that some competition from Google will change that.

Thanks for the tip, MetaMonkey! But Geocities is so lame comapred to what I've read about Google Pages. I guess I'll just have to keep on my toes like bim suggested. Geocities' page applet doesn't work for any OS other than Windows :(
