Here is a little more on web publishing for the non-technical person. Since I began playing with Weebly, I've also been looking at several non-technical web publishing sites including Doodlekit which will allow more advanced features like shopping carts, search capabilities, and other advanced features, but as expected those come with a price (or advertising). If you need the extra features it might be a good fit. TechCrunch had an interesting article mentioning several applications out there; I've quickly tested Squarespace and Sampa, but still recommend Weebly as the easiest to use of this type of novice web publishing. If you need a more custom web site you can always consider hiring a pro.
Yes, I'm going to start cheating and taking the easy way out. I want to explore to see how much I can push the capabilities of Weebly, OR just be lazy by taking the the quick update path, the UI (User Interface) appears SO easy to use, I'm recommending it to many of my friends and non-techie colleagues who wish to create their own sites. No experience is needed. It's free, has no advertising, and it should only take a couple of minutes. During the set-up the site may ask you to register your domain name for about 24./year (a reasonable price). You don't have to register a domain if you choose not to, just click continue, you can always register it later. I would recommend getting your own domain name, it would appear to be more professional and easier to remember. http://www.weebly.com/
Although I am a kid at heart, I have been in the graphics and media industry for over 25 years and the web since late in 1993. I have worked as a UI designer, web designer, creative director, art director, professor, illustrator, and graphic designer. In recent years, I have been concentrating on UX (User eXperience) and UI (User Interface) design.
