When Seth Godin says good things about Strikingly, you know you got to check this website builder out. This blog post is all about Embedding Comments on Strikingly.

While WordPress is certainly the main choice for many, the truth is that Strikingly is known to be highly responsive although the customization options are limited. Strikingly relies on a scrolling single-page design with sections to which viewers can navigate. This website builder focuses on building modern, scrollable single page sites with parallax effects.

The speed and ease of creating a site on Strikingly will appeal to bloggers and entrepreneurs looking to get a stylish new site off the ground with a minimum of fuss. There is also a one-click option for creating a site from your Facebook or LinkedIn account, ideal if you are self-employed or even if you just want a personal website.
