One of many things I regularly tell new writers is that it's vital to have a professional site set up where you can host a real portfolio (pointing people to "fake" portfolios like Associated Content pages or member profiles on freelancing sites is just flat out unprofessional, and what far too many do).
There's a Web template supplier that I've considered buying from in the past: Template Kingdom. If you're familiar with Template Monster, they're similar. The big differences are that prices are often cheaper at Template Kingdom, and they give you exclusive rights to the templates you buy (whereas Template Monster sells the same template to multiple buyers).
It looks like their prices are significantly lower than I remember them being the last time I'd checked them out, so I just wanted to share the resource for anyone interested in creating their own professional writer's website, but without having to design it themselves or dish out a lot of money for a first site's design.
