IWSG: My issue with Web Building

IWSG: a place where writers and friends share woes or hugs.
Welcome to mine!

I've been falling in and out of writerly habits, it's been crazy. One thing that keeps jumping back at me is my website. I created one back in 2011 using Weebly. I've listed the books I was working on, the books I've published, events, biography, writing tips ... but I'm just not happy with the layout. I'm not fond of my hosting site anymore--I've always found the drag-and-drop for my pages cumbersome.

My writing is all over the place: I write historical, contemporary, realistic, YA, fantasy, children's, paranormal. What theme should I use for my website's appearance? Something neutral?

Honestly, I've been mulling over how to share my qualms with you for the past year already! Talk about insecure, right?

I'd love to know your thoughts on what an author website should have. What should it not have? What do you think about keeping it simple? I've seen where authors have everything under the sun.

Also, which web builder do you prefer? Why? How did you find yourself where you are with your website if you have one? Thank you for your insight!
