do any of you guys know about builkding a website. I have tried a couple of different places and it never works right. Where is the easiest? I see a lot of you use free webs...how hard is it to use that one. They all look so confusing to me. But getting one started is sooo expensive!
thanks in advance

freewebs is pretty easy, I have a slow computer and it still works pretty good. If you want you can look at mine, it's not quite done but it's decent.

I use freewebs and I have always used it. It is very easy(and I can be quite blonde at times) to use. I can never get their picture uploader thingy to work for me but you can use Photobucket pictures which makes it even nicer. Here's mine: http://www.freewebs.com/sandylanefarm I have to do some more updating on it but it's mostly finished and here's my brothers: http://www.freewebs.com/delhotalboerfarm I designed that for him and he hasn't updated it in a long time so I'm just going to do it for him one of these days.
If you have any questions or troubles with FreeWebs feel free to ask me :) I've pretty much figured everything out on it.

Pretty much what goathappy said. I've gotten the photo uploader to work but only rarely, but I can never be sure if it's my computer or not.

I don't know what it is. I thought it used to be an internet connection but then when we got satellite it still didn't work for me. :roll: This computer is so slow anyway.

Your welcome :)
Hehe, she's my pride and joy. :D Unfortunately, according to her breeder she hates shows. She said that every time she took her to a show she would have to udder her up for 3 days because she wouldn't make any milk and that she really doesn't like strangers. I am going to try and take her to one show, but I'll have to see.

you never know until you try right? I had one doe that i got as a yearling. She was wild as a march hare. she had to drag a rope around so i could carch her. I took her to one show and she was my new best friend. Now she quite enjoys the shows.
I was just taking a look at some of the extended pedigrees on your animals. I have a friend here who breeds lamanchas. She hactually has a buck that is a great grand sire to a couple of your bucks. Lucky Stars 3D Natural. Boy is a pretty boy. Big He has several milking daughters in her herd now and they are all doing well in the ring.
Jusy Hoy is an awsome breeder. We were stalled next to her at the 05 nationals. She was a great help. I see her occasionally at shows.

On you page that you want to add pictures and text, click on the button on the bottom that says "Add a new paragraph" Then it will take you to the site editor and you can add all your text there. To add pictures, in your website editor, there is a little button with a picture of a tree on it. Click that picture and a window will pop up and there will be a thing on there so that you can add a PB image. I don't use their uploader because it doesn't work for me.
Oh, and also, my sight is a free site, but I took two sites and combined them to have enough pages. FreeWebs only allows 20 pages on a free site, so I got two account to make mine bigger.
As far as Raven goes, the breeder said she did really good at shows up until 2 years of age, then she just didn't want to go anymore.
Natural is a really nice buck his daughters are even nicer I think. :)

I'm an idiot when it comes to computers...so I would have to say that when I tried the freewebs site deal...it was super easy! I was amazed at how quick I was able to do mine...and doing photobucket before that made it really simple to add piccies to my site....just having the time to sit and design it was the problem! :lol:

that is mine and it is a freewebs site.

Easy to use - their image uploader is not with a thing but if you have a photobucket account (also free) then you can add pictures using that.

Click on the tree and then insert the direct link URL where indicated. You will have to resize the picture by draging the sides to make it fit.

It is easier too since I already have them in photobucket anyway.

is mine. This was my first website and freewebs made it REALLY easy!! I wouldn't even know how to begin building one from scratch. I also use photobucket for my pictures and it works really well.

goathappy- How were you able to combine two websites on there to make one? I have been thinking about purchasing one of the plans so that I get my own domain and more pages, but if I could combine two sites or something then that might work.
