    I recently started a thread on here to get feedback on my website and ask whether an off the peg site was worth doing, or whether i should build one myself. I got a lot of useful comments and it certainly was made clear that the "free" off the peg solutions were not worth doing. I was also guided very strongly towards setting up a Wordpress website. I have set these up before but found getting it to do just what I wanted was fiddly and updating was just too much trouble in the end. Still I wanted to ask for advice and then act on it, so that's just what i did.

    My original site in the previous thread was here. After I had played around with setting up a wrodpress one it has changed to this one. The main things that are different are that I have been able to remove the "free website with XXX" adverts. I have also been able to give more prominence to the photos. I have organised then in topic based portfolios. I have left out any extraneous writing ( perhaps too much ? ) I now plan to add a section on my AV presentations and perhaps even the music that I have produced. I haven't done that yet because I wanted to get feedback on the photography side before expanding it. I might be better setting up a separate website for the Av and the music. Any thoughts ?

    Thanks to everyone for their constructive criticism. I would certainly welcome more of the same with regard to the changes I have made.

    It's an improvement, although I'm not keen on all the different overlaying backgrounds. Perhaps you have left out too much writing (about you and your photography).
    I can't agree free off peg the solutions are not worth doing especially for a complete beginner to website building like myself. I'm in the process of building a website with Weebly - http://www.scenicuk.com - and don't find their 'free website' advert too obtrusive. The free option gives me all I need at the moment and when and if I feel the need I will upgrade to their pro option (then I can remove the advert).
