There’s nothing like setting aside a weekend to build a personal, big-photo-background website from the ground up.
Then remembering everyone will look at your site on their phones.
Striking.ly makes building gorgeous mobile-optimized sites a snap without a line of code. Design what they call “one-pagers” by adding new sections to your page and click on anything you see to change fonts, backgrounds, words, and more.
Two one-pagers and basic templates are free, but it also has premium templates as well as Starter and Pro accounts to accommodate custom domain names, extra one-pagers, and other goodies like code embedding.
The more you use it, the more hidden gems you’ll find. Some of our favorites include seamless vertical scrolling with arrow keys and effortless Search Engine Optimization.
And of course, mobile-phone optimization is standard.
