    Check out my first ever Webpage

    If it's one thing i know then that it is that HUKD members are generally an honest lot (some too honest and others...well, better not go there)

    I have designed my first ever Webpage on Squidoo- a free webhosting site/community. Was really easy and quite a fun thing to do at 2am this morning- can't all be partying in the VIP.

    I've bought a Vibration Plate for the wife and I to supplement our new healthy..ahem, healthier lifestyle and intend to write a blog on our progress (or lack of it). Also hope, as i get fitter, to have a go at some physical challenges to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. But that is a bit away- i could even start a suggestion thread here. But hey, getting carried away!

    First of all i would ask if some of you could check out my webpage (not a pay per click site) and let me know what you think.

    If it's ok or if it stinks.

    And i will provide a link to Squidoo if anyone is interested in doing their own

    Mine:
    [url]http://www.squidoo.com/vibrationplates[url]
    Squidoo:
    [url] http://www.squidoo.com/[url] oops- how do i insert links?

    Thanks Sean, Hope my web attempt is better than my thread

    it liked it, didnt bother readin it tho :lo: nice simple layout, easy to navigate, nice colour scheme goin on

    good job :thumbsup:

    It's not bad for a first go, obviously the squidoo placed adverts detract from the page, but that is expected for a free host.
    The other issue is that is really needs proof reading - copy paste your info into word, and you'll see what I mean "desined" etc.

    Yeah. Or more so in a broad Glasgow dialect. Anyone got any ideas for my page?

    Sorry, very parochial of me to assume that everyone understands glasgow slang.

    wordpress theming is good mate.

    When i told my wife i was buying her a vibration machine that weighed 63 kilo and had a 300 watt motor that enabled it to pulse at 50 Hz she fainted.

    Imagine her disappointment when i told her it was an exercise machine ;-)

    Theres plenty of other free web-hosts that don't fill your page with adverts and broken links, personally I've used Google sites recently and its very quick and easy to make an okay looking site if your just after something simple...

    Thank you for taking the time to look at it. I quite liked the idea that it could possibly generate money (probably only pennies-or cents) through advertisements and direct Charity donations. One of the reasons i am doing it is raise money and was told this was one of the best. I am a total novice so any advice is welcomed and i would consider any suitable sites. Especially as Squidoo doesn't allow you to insert UK charities- i was going to just use the money any ad revenue generated.
