Your website

I see so many websites for restorers and retouchers, but so few for our members. This got me wondering: do you have a website?

I have webspace, and I did some work on a site, but I never actually got anywhere even close to finishing it.. I've kind of forgotten about it in the last couple weeks, this just reminded me about it.

Yes and it's listed here but mostly it's become a reference for business generated from the local Yellow Pages more than a source of online business.

I clicked on answer 4 in the poll which does not exactly fit my situation.

I authored and maintain a website dedicated to locating individuals who served in the Army unit to which I was attached during the Korean war. I do not have a personal or business website.

If I ever hone my skills to the point where I figure someone might pay for them, I'll reconsider. That may be a long time in coming.

JB:

I meant any website, so it doesn't really matter if it's business-related or not. My best friend runs HeavyBombers, which you might find of interest (locating USAAF members from WWII).

Not so much a website as a parking area for odd snaps. Used as a link prior to the gallery facility.

I voted "Yes, but it's a secret" - which isn't exactly my situation. Like Chris, my website is pretty much a parking lot for old photos right now. Since I refused to pay yahoo for the "privilege" of POPping my e-mail, I quickly found a webhost for my e-mail using a domain name which I registered six months ago, but I haven't yet had time to put up a website for my business. I've got a lot of ideas - just haven't had time to put them all together yet.

I voted "it's a secret" also, but I used to have a website on AOL that I put up years ago and never finished. It contains some personal photography of Arizona landscape and wildlife. Still have the pages, but haven't set up my new space with my new cable provider. I've helped do some work on the website for our wildlife rehabilitation group, but now it's handled by someone else.

I believe that a good website focuses on someone's passionate interests, and I'm not yet well enough focused to create a good website.

Yes, I have a website and it is posted.

I started it, and continue to maintain it, for the following reasons:

1) A place where our scattered relatives across the country can view pictures of their grandson. I got really tired of making reprints for 4 sets of grandparents.

2) A place for me to post pictures and my graphic art projects that I enjoy doing as a hobby.

3) It serves as a place to post pictures for forums that do not allow for uploading of pics.

4) To claim my fair share of cyberspace


I really need to tweek some of it and remove portions of it that I just have not maintained or started and never really completed.

I have a lot of respect for moderators of websites such as this, because there is definitely a time factor involved in keeping things running smoothly.

If you care to indulge here is the link.
