    Smile Web Site

    Hello everyone...
    I just registered as a Nikonite. So this is my first time here.
    I am "retired" and have done a lot of digital photography the last few years. I upgraded a few years back from film to a Nikon D70s (when they were new). I have enough good quality photos that I would like to have my own web site to "show off" my talent and to let people see what I have. Maybe even sell a few if any of them are something someone is looking for. My question is...where do I go for a good web site? I have gone online and looked a some of the "freebies" and those that charge a fee. I also know a few people that do web sites at a more costly fee. Who or what would you recommend? Can a web site be built without going through anybody? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

    Why not start off with a blog to gain interest? Wordpress makes a number of great blog themes to get you started. It's all free and this will get you acclimated to producing images that show well on the web. You can always transition to a paid website with your own domain name at a later time.

    Do it for the love and the money will follow. Do it for the money and you'll never love it.

    Hey DJW - what you posted in the blog is more of a forum post (like above). For now I've removed your blog post. The blog should be more article type posts. For example, you can use the blog to display your work and describe what went into taking the pictures. You could effectively use this as your website if you wish.
