Blogging at Infinite.ly

I am no longer new when it comes to writing blog contents. I am maintaining two blog sites now and so far, so good.

I am working with wordpress.com for this blog and wordpress.org for my beauty blog. I notice their difference and find .com more easy to use, as .org requires more knowledge in web developing.

I was then introduce to infinite.ly website builder and of course as an aspiring blogger I gave it a try.

So I started by signing up and I was given three choices – Free, Small Biz, and Professional.

For the Free category you will have the following:

  • 5 MB Storage
  • Access to core widgets
  • No Facebook Page Tab
  • Personalized Sub Domain

For the Professional Category at P140/month:

  • 50 MB Storage
  • Access to all widgets
  • Custom Facebook Page Tab
  • Use your own custom domain name

For the Small Biz Category at P1,600/year

  • 50 MB Storage
  • Access to all widgets
  • Custom Facebook Page Tab
  • Free Custom domain name

Above is the screenshot of the Web Page Builder. I chose the blogger template but there are other templates available to choose from. If you want to build a portfolio website, a restaurant, a school, and others. Or you can have a free layout and you can do whatever design you like.

After choosing the template you will be redirected to the site editing page. You will see on the left the different elements you can add to your page. You can add the following:

  • Text
  • Logo
  • Rectangle
  • Circle
  • Blog Section
  • video
  • Stream
  • Contact Form
  • Sign Up Form
  • PayPal Donation
  • Links
  • Share
  • Facebook Comments
  • Map
  • Custom HTML

You can edit the background and add pages as you go along. You can also upload your favicon, Google analytics account, and meta date keywords.

From the site builder page also, you can view your messages, visitors, and customers (if applicable)

From a point of view of a novice blogger, the design and layout of the site is easily navigated. I can just drag and change the layout and you can see the change immediately.

You can publish it right away in the world wide web as well as in mobile devices.

My Parallel Plesk builder has the same specifications and features with infinite.ly and I have the same problem.

It is the Blog Section. It is easier if you post content remotely, where you do not have to open the site builder to update a post. You don’t manually post excerpt at the homepage too.

I think it will be better if site builder has content management feature as well. Sometimes it is a headache to be the only one technical person in maintaining a website and you will get crazy seeing all the text frames in the edit page.

Overall, this infinite.ly is great and can make noise in the hosting industry. I just wish they will offer higher disk space as most of us upload a lot of photos.

I shall continue navigating my newly built blog and update you guys soon.

  1. Hey there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a
    template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

  3. Having read this I believed it was rather informative.
    I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending way
    too much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still
    worthwhile!
