After a month of swirling in html, php, and a lot of other things about web design I never knew, I am finally finished getting my website ready for other people to use! The site is a blogging community about all things related to love...the good news is I left "love" to be open to interpretation so it is just not typical romantic mushy wishy-washy stuff and will hopefully appeal to a larger audience. I've made it so members can create their own free blog, submit articles, participate in discussions, etc. I am letting users keep all rights to their content (so they can use it in any other way they like) and I also am allowing people to post their affiliate/referral links...for example in theory someone could write how they love mylot & post their referral link...or if someone wrote a good article on helium or squidoo etc. they could create a story with that link for more information, etc. I am going to start having contests every month to liven it up & keep things fun once I get 50 members. I'm pretty excited that I did this all by myself with no prior website design skills or knowledge. I look at my site and don't even believe I put it there! Anyways, if you want to check out my creation, visit the link on my profile page...i definately welcome feedback and comments. There is not too much content yet, but that is because so far i'm the only member! (You guys are the first people I'm telling it about!) What about you? Have you ever designed your own website? How did you feel after it was all finished? Were you nervous about what other people would think when they saw it?

I used Design disease for my blog template too! http://www.josweb.co.uk I really like their designs, I've played around with mine quite a bit altering graphics and the css code. I design sites for others now and have a company called Spiral Pixel - http://www.spiralpixel.com This all came about when I made my first site to promote my pyrographic art. It is amazing what you can learn by studying code or simply looking at how other sites are made up. I never knew that this would become my job! Love your blog by the way!
