'Not to plug anything here, but I just discovered that Deviant Art is doing something that you guys might find cool and useful for a change.
I know, I hate Deviant Art, but apparently now they have a tool that lets you build a simple portfolio website. http://news.deviantart.com/article/86515/
I made a quick one, http://katnicoleb.daportfolio.com/ but I think I'll probably continue working on the one I've been building in Dreamweaver these past few weeks because I don't want DA's logo on the bottom of my page, and I want to do some awesome, custom things.
Anyway, I thought you guys might be interested in this if you don't want to purchase a domain name or hosting service and you don't feel like ripping your hair out over uncooperative CSS
