But with your Typepad blog you can get into the HTML (or your web designer can) and make it look any way you want to, offering the advantages of manipulating to your heart's content while being able tp change and publish quickly. There are loads of examples of pages which are blogs but don't look like it. Le Monde is one example, but many more are listed in Loic Lemeur's posts (

Thanks Ewan,

More food for thought!

Getting your own domain name and setting up a website is not expensive. I set one up recently for a small local business (Mirakel) that sells wedding shoes. It's hosted by Titan Hosts and costs around 50 pounds per year. Here's Titan's URL and the URL of Mirakel's site:
