I found something kinda cool this week. It's called pageflakes, and you can create your page pretty much however you like, with all kinds of widgets - and NO need for html coding knowledge, at all. I made one here to showcase Mother's Day goodies at my store. I suppose you can use them for all sorts of things, but the coolest thing is, it took seconds to build that, instead of hours of meticulous coding. I really like that.
The widgets they have are useful things like weather, news, sports, etc., plus you can list your blog rss feeds, bookmarks and more. I haven't fully explored it yet, but was fun playing around with it so far.
