6 Reasons Why I Love Easysite
7 if you count the fact that I LOVE the creator
PIN FOR LATEROkay, you’ve been thinking about starting a blog or website. It’s been in the back of your mind for some time now and you’re wondering if you can really do it. The answer is YES. Absolutely YES! You may have grand plans for connecting with interested onlookers across the globe or maybe your ideas are more humble than that. Perhaps you’re just looking for your own little space of the Internet where you can share your thoughts with the people in your life. Either way, Easysite.com is a great platform to create your blog or website. In this post I’m going to share with you my personal six reasons why I love Easysite. There’s plenty of competition out there in the build-your-own website world, but I’d like to convince you that Easysite is the way to go.
Before I get to that, I have a confession to make. I am personal friends with the creator of Easysite. Oh, “personal friends” might not be quite right. Actually, Steve Sivulka, the creator of Easysite is my husband. It’s true! And NO, he didn’t ask me to write this post. For many years I (along with thousands of others) have benefited from this incredible website builder, but I have never taken the time to tell the story behind Easysite and the great features that make it so incredible.

So now let’s get to the story of Easysite. And by the way, if you’re not interested in the story, you can quickly scroll down to the Six Reasons Why I Love Easysite below…
It was 1998. We were young (in our twenties), married with careers and no kids. I was teaching literature and history to 6th graders and Steve was working for a software development company in San Diego. We loved traveling and every time I had a school break we took off on an adventure. Some of those travels included destinations that had particular interest to me and my 6th graders. Our history curriculum included ancient cultures and so when we were off to places like Rome or Athens, I wanted to be able to share my experiences with my students. I wished I could have taken those students right along with me to see the amazing sites we were learning about.
