    So I've created my own site for no other reason than to see if I could. :laugh:

    There's nothing commercial about it, its just me having a bit of fun.

    Anyhow the address is below and I'd appreciate any feedback / abuse that you feel is necessary and even some the you feel isn't. :D

    Mick Wareing Photographer

    Thanks in advance.

    It's very good!! Perhaps I would have chosen different fonts but you could skin that particular cat all day long:p

    It loads fast and the interface works well. How did you go about it/which company or software. I'm certainly impressed!

    Pete:thumbsup:

    Really like the site and very nicely built.:smashin:.. the only thing I would take out is from the title on the page is Mick Wareing Photographer.. you don't need the word "Photographer"...

    I also agree about the font.. not too sure but it is a very personal thing... I am also interested in how you setup the site and how you manage it.. would be interested in doing that too..

    Thanks for comments guys.

    I'd spent about 2 weeks designing a site in dreamweaver and I showed it to a dev at work.

    He laughed at me and pointed me in the direction of the wix website and I instantly thought ***....

    I'd pretty much designed in dreamweaver the layout I've got now but nowhere near as professorial looking.

    Its so easy to do anybody with an ounce of common sense can do it. The site and domain has cost me about £30 for a year and I'd recommend anybody wanting to give it a go to have a look at wix first to see if it fits your needs.

    The look will very much change in the next couple of days as I'm going to publish my own layout etc, but this thread was more about the content, speed and general feeling.

    Very interesting...thanks for that. You have done well and I hope you get bags of satisfaction from it:smashin:

    I reckon I'll stay with Flickr for now as it's just convenient and well, it works for me. But, maybe in the future....:cool:

    .....it's about time Flickr got a refresh/overhaul... it's becoming dated and needs more user interface options. Perhaps like Zenfolio etc..

    Pete.

    One of the options on the wix is to stream from your flickr account.
