Pixpa Review 2018 (A Hidden Gem)

I’d like to start by welcoming all of your creative types to this Pixpa review.

I stumbled across them for the first time recently when researching one of their competitors.

I made a note of the name and told myself I’d come back to review them when I had a little time and I can tell you, I’m very glad I did!

I can say with confidence, that if you’re a photographer, designer, artist, or fashionista, then you’re in for quite a treat.

SmugMug Review 2018 (A Rollercoaster of a Ride!)

I’m so glad you could join me today…

You see, I’ve been reviewing general website builders for quite some time now but SmugMug is my first specialist photography platform and I’m kinda excited!

I’ve heard many good things about them along the way and after hearing the recent news of them acquiring photo storage site Flickr, I couldn’t put it off any longer.

An example website I created using SmugMug. The site is called "Photography In The Rain" and consists of people, landmarks, and nature shots all taken in the rain

An uneven set of weighing scalesFor it’s first head-to-head, WebStarts will be going up against Wix which I’ve come to think of as the industry standard in do-it-yourself website builders.

Today, I’ll dig deep to present you with the similarities between these two platforms and more importantly, the main differences with the sole aim of helping you make an informed decision.

Best 2 Website Builders For Bands & Musicians (Yep, Just The 2!)

As a lover of both classic and modern rock, there’s nothing I like more than going to watch a band in my local area on a Friday evening.

I actually find it a little frustrating…

I want to be able to browse their site, learn about their history, influences, about the musicians themselves and maybe even purchase their albums.

These are just a few advantages of having your own website. It’s a place to build your brand and somewhere to call (digital) home.

With that in mind, I rolled up my sleeves and spent hours testing various website builders and came up with what I believe to be the best platforms to help you achieve it as quickly, and as easily as possible.
