Is bricks lifetime for a single site still available and is bricks the right choice

I just registered a new site yesterday and bought hosting. From many of the forum post, many mentioned that bricks would be the way to go. I have very little experience with coding as I don’t consider copy and paste from sites coding. Most site thing I’ve done in the past was create a site using word, export to html and some frames to pull up static pages and that was 20 years ago. So I’m trying to learn bricks but getting a bit frustrated. I haven’t found any templates that fit my vision for the site.

Home , News, Education, Reviews, Travel, Food , Videos

News would just be blogs with images and YouTube links and ads

Education would be like k5learning.com with extra subjects, adding prep, speech therapy, different learning methods

Reviews would be item blogs, with youtube embedded videos, pictures, Amazon affiliate links and ads
Travel is like reviews, with sub categories like cruises, theme parks, tourist spots

Food would be blogs with recipes , embedded videos, ads and Amazon links

Videos would be embedded youtube playlist.

The education would have pdf learning materials for free and paid, along with membership options. Trying to make it easy for my wife to add new materials for each subject and dynamically create.

Maybe I’m biting more than I can chew and should go with wix or hire a developer.

Registry is through cloud flare and hosting is through hustly

  1. I don’t recall there ever being a single site lifetime, but perhaps I’m wrong. If you go on their site, you can see what is available; you could also reach out to them directly about the 1 site lifetime, but I really don’t think that’s something they offer.

    Bricks is great, but if you’re only interested in building a single site, perhaps a theme might be a better option for you; there are some that have one time fees, but offer renewable support options. Or you may want to look at a different page builder with a cheaper lifetime fee than what bricks is offering, and has more pre-built templates than what they have. I’m not downplaying bricks at all, just suggesting that there may be cheaper and easier to learn alternatives to reach your goal with the site build.

  2. You can learn Bricks. It is geared more towards developers but I do believe it’s easy enough for savvy DIYers.

    Every time I show a new client their backend they’re super stoked and find it easy to use, bearing in mind I’ve already done the heavy lifting.

    You might benefit from installing some pre-made templates and reverse engineering to your liking.

    Here’s a lists of Bricks resources you might find [helpful](https://start.me/p/MbxMGe/bricks-links).

  3. Bricks is a fantastic tool, but like any new skill, it can take some time to get the hang of it. Don’t be discouraged if you haven’t found the perfect template yet – customization is key! With your vision in mind, you might need to tweak existing templates to fit your site’s unique needs.

    Considering the complexity of what you’re aiming for – from news blogs to educational resources and more – it might be worth exploring other options like Wix or hiring a developer. Wix offers intuitive drag-and-drop features that could simplify the process for you, while hiring a developer could ensure that your site is exactly as you envision it.

    It’s important to weigh the pros and cons of each option based on your time, budget, and desired level of control over the website. Regardless of which path you choose, remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day – take it one step at a time, and don’t hesitate to reach out for help or advice along the way.

    Best of luck with your website venture, and feel free to ask if you have any more questions!
