What kind of websites were you planning to build?
I needed to build a professional website to support my Talent Development consulting practice. The design had to meet preferences from a multitude of industries and countries, allowing my clients direct access to many resources that I used to email to them (e.g., PDF documents of training program descriptions, product samples, brochures, references, models, checklists, demonstrations with videos, etc.).

Now that you have Sandvox, what do you like about it?
Sandvox was very easy to learn and fun to use (so much so, than I make improvements weekly, just because I can!). I enjoyed following Karelia's Sandvox Training Course DVD, and was able to create a professional looking business website, with RSS feeds, Amazon links, List of Links, Site Map, Contact Form, etc., in a matter of hours. Editing raw HTML was easily done as needed. I am now using Sandvox to build two other websites, not yet published on other domains.

On my Ideas page, I share my favorite RSS feeds with my clients. I use pagelets in a variety of ways, with/without headers,...”
