Edit.com isn't correct for all websites

Last week, we looked at a hand-held gaming unit - a final tribute to the fun days of summer.

Last week, we looked at a hand-held gaming unit - a final tribute to the fun days of summer.

For the rest of this month, we leave summer behind and turn to productivity tools.

September, after all, is the month for getting serious again - whether in school or business. And we'll start our productivity push with a look at Edit.com.

Started this past February and aimed at small and mid-sized businesses, this website allows you to make changes, fixes, and updates to a website.

The company has developers available if you need help. Fees range from $25 per use to $180 a year.

This might appeal to smaller firms or independent practitioners who don't want to learn HTML or those who feel technologically challenged, but still want to keep their sites current.

It can't work with all sites. I asked for its free evaluation of a site I created years ago for divorced dads using Microsoft's Front Page, but was told Edit.com wouldn't work for my site because I had used a "do-it-yourself website creation tool." So much for being Mr. Independent.
