    Oh no! :( I'm sorry! Have you tried photoreflect? It's a pretty easy set-up.

    What did you think was going to happen? If you take your work seriously you have to come up with a strong website and marketing plan. Keep in mind that there are a a million photographers out there. It is your job to stand out from the rest and get clients.

    Ya. No sh*t.

    Its free, I deal with it. One day, I'll move up with the big dogs. Until then, I'll deal with this sh*t. Its not financially feasible for me right now, I wish it was because it'd be a priority.

    I'm happy to HAVE a website to show to people, even if the tech stuff sucks and is irritating. On the positive side, I didn't sit back and make excuses as to why I don't have one (money). I have one, it just sucks (for me). But I do think I keep it up well and it is getting to where I want it to be.

    I think it's pretty obvious from the original post that she understands all of this. Your comments are irrelevant.

    Kelly, this is an honest answer and is not meant as an insult.

    But as long as you are on freewebs, you will never have the means to afford anything else. Freewebs are for kids, it is not an acceptible way to show your work or get clients. It shows little to no investment in your own company or image. (no one should be advertising on your site but you)

    When I go to a site to purchase something I need to know that there is stablity in the site I am ordering from. I would never click a buy now button on a freeweb site (It is not secure) as well it is a free web, how do I know you will not take my money and run.

    Hosting plans are not expensive anymore. Usually less than $10.00 a month. You can go to a library and take out some books on web design, there are plenty of free programs to assist you in creating your site. It is a process just like photography, start basic and build on it.

    You do not need to spend thousands of dollars on you site, just build it over time as you read and learn.

    photography comes like... 5th on my list of priorities for right now.. its a hobby for me. i can't afford even 10 a month, i know of other sites out there but literally can't afford it. heres the DL
    1st I'm a single mom
    2nd I'm a full time college student
    3rd I work 2 part time jobs to keep a roof over our heads
    and then, lastly, I do photography on the side.

    I hope to put photography up in a higher rank of priorities in the future. But right now, its literally NOT financially feasible. I couldn't afford 10 a month, and thats the truth.
