    Just cruised on over there, had a look and created an account. Put it on my list of sites to check daily. Starting to wonder if Word Press might have been a better option.

    Wordpress sucks... I have it on my todo list to find a different solution, i'd also like to get an email attached to the domainname... I'm trying out Lightroom and Adobe CC at the moment, it seems like i'll be able to get a website through that with a domain of my choosing as part of the monthly subscription...

    That would probably be your best bet since yours is photography related. What I really like about Blogger is you can do a lot of customizing to the layout of your page.

    I know its pricey but squarespace lets you do way more customisation than wordpress or blogger, gives you your own domain as well...

    Yeah, I gotta stick to free for now. I'm on a budget until I head to Alaska in the spring. When I had my International Evanescence Fan Forum I used Host Gator. Just designed the main page on my PC and uploaded it by FTP and setting up a phpBB forum was a piece of cake. My co-admin was an expert in php so he was a lifesaver many times. Their hosting was $54/month and that was back around 2009 when I let it lapse.

    Yikes, thats expensive... I’m dropping my mobile internet hotspot in order to fund Lightroom, i haven’t used it in about a year now so i might as well use that money on something i’ll actually use...

    That's what I'd do.

    Host Gator a full featured web hosting service. SSL, domain name, unlimited bandwidth, email, php, tons of storage. I split the cost with my co-admin so it wasn't all on my shoulders. Once the Evanescence hype died down it got to the point where it was just admins and staff on the board so we made the decision to cut it. Broke my heart to do it, though. I ran a few other sites off the same account too.

    I just popped over there and the Hatchling Plan which is what we used is only $2.78/mo. now. Wonder if they're offsetting the user costs with ads or something. How did it go to $54/mo. to $2.78??? I'm going to have to look into getting an account again if it's that cheap now. There's gotta be a catch.

    EDIT: What was I thinking. That was $54 every six months. I swear I'm losing my mind. o_O

    Picked this up at Harbor Fraught this morning. It's one of those things I never knew I needed and it'll save my digital calipers some wear and tear when I don't need super precise measurements.
