website design

Re: website design

Welcome to the forum, Dave. I use Dreamweaver for websites, but I also do commercial sites.

What do you want from a website? What kind of elements are you looking for?

Is it just for pictures? Discussions? Presenting information?

Do you have a domain name?

Do you have a hosting service yet? Most hosting services have simple website design templates for those that don't want to learn the details. Makes it much easier.

I've used for hosting before, but they aren't exactly for the faint of heart.

More input ....

Actually, most people will not follow through with a travel website. It is not all that easy to keep up with. I see a lot that only last for a couple of seasons. (Kirk and Pam are an exception!)

To make it interesting, you have to post (and picture) what you are doing all the time. You have to be committed (!) to doing it.

And you can't be overly sensitive when your own family "can't find the time" to participate in your travelog. Most won't.

Which reminds me that there is a website designed for travel postings called: MyTripJournal

Re: website design

We also use and love We also recommend as well. allows you to post more photos free of charge. We have posted the past 2 years of vacation and find both very easy to use! We really enjoy reading travel blogs. Especially the ones from here in the USA.
Re: website design

When I first got started with my website I did it myself and it really was a chore. I now have my young nephew do it for me......Young?? I guess he is in his late 20's now...
It is awful to get Old..... Anyway, not to wonder, I use for the hosting service......I have had great luck with them and they only cost $1.00 per month ($12.00 per Year).....You can't beat that with a stick...

Good Luck

Re: website design

We have had our website on our own domain (1Tree, as in Wood with no s) since we began. I have always used MS Frontpage to compose the pages but we just used mostly custom html to operate the page. Recently we reformatted our complete site and are now running the server software from Joomla.
Re: website design

Having your own Domain is the only way to go....That way you don't have all those "pup-up" advertisers trying to get your viewers attention.
Thank you very much. Very helpful information. And I think the opposite. High-quality and beautiful design is the basis of the web site itself, its marketing look. Now in the epoch of sales and marketing it is very important to create a beautiful website that will help, and not slow down. I can advise the service Very high quality and responsible approach to work.
