    Hi Jeremy, I am currently using WordPress and find that trying to set up a website for a non-techy like me is seriously frustrating!! I will be opening up a small B&B in our town soon and would like to have something that is user friendly. WordPress uses so much lingo/jargon that I just don't understand. Layouts of text and photos are offЙjust doesn't work for me nor do I have the time to research and figure it out. I need something that allows me to drop in photos with ease, puts us out in the social media world, tailored to a B&BЙwould you recommend WiX for this?

    Base on what I've seen here the top candidate for me is Weebly, but I don't want to tied to one host for ever, would not use their web hosting, if it's possible. I'm old fasion, I like the idea of buying software, getting a CD, installing it on my PC, and having control of the files that are created. If the builder is online, like godaddy, then I don't want it, because it ties me to that web host, which I don't like. Is Weebly like that? This is one good thing about WebEasy, although I hear there are support issues with WebEasy.
