Tindie is interesting from a storefront standpoint, but doesn’t answer the website aspect.
Imagine a turnkey solution for blog/website, plus storefront. Probably not terribly practical, at least not as a paid service, but it’d be cool to have, to allow module devs to focus on developing and supporting their hardware and drivers, instead of being webmasters.

For the Mountaineer Web sites, we are using Jimdo (http://www.jimdo.com). Jimdo provides website, blog, and in the JimdoBusiness version also storefront. There are some rough edges, but all in all it is fun to use and they provide a reasonable set of basic features across all functions.
but considering how pretty much every major player has decreased their interest in Gadgeteer vs the other way around, I decided not to waste my time. If Microsoft’s new focus revives the interest then I’ll likely start it up again. I believe for Gadgeteer to ever really take off it really needs a vendor independent hub.
