How to use Flavors.me for Creating a Site

It is becoming more and more important to have your own personal blog or a website as it helps you in expanding your professional as well as social circle.

Employers these days prefer to look for personal blogs to get to know their applicants better, and maintaining a personal website definitely gives you some sort of an advantage over many others.

The type of content and vibe that you want your page to reflect totally depends on you; it can either be a professional representation, showing your qualifications, skills and intellectual abilities or a place where people can connect with you and find out more about you.

If you are not familiar with website designing tools, HTML, or do not want to waste time with hosted solutions like WordPress or Blogger, there is a very easy and free solution in the form of Flavors.me. It allows you to create personal websites with a very basic layout and sleek interface in an effective and efficient manner, just like Tumblr or WordPress.
