Default Website.. personal or kennel

Where do you make yours? Any advice?

I don't have much time, I have even less energy, and minimal desire BUT I would like a website for the dogs. Largely just for fun and to keep the dogs accomplishments, photos, videos, and plans in one place.

I don't want to pay for a site either though, any tips?

Lots and lots of people are basically just using blogger templates now for that sort of thing. You can tag each entry so that you can easily search for/find what you want.

Lots of people use blogger.. I like tumblr personally but that's only because I'm more used to it lol

at the end of the day.. I'd much rather just make facebook FAN pages for their dogs. It's SO MUCH EASIER!! and I like the timeline format for groups.. it works well for dog pages.

hehe and corvus has one! http://www.facebook.com/CorvusTheSuperMutt

Wordpress is a good choice if you want partial website, partial blog. My entire website is Wordpress-run (you can check it if you click on my bannerthing) but if you know the very basics of web design you can make one REALLY easily through their website:

www.wordpress.org

Blogger's great if it's your thing, I personally like the extended versatility of Wordpress. But if you want something that's usable right out of the box, Blogger is perfect.

Would something like that be easy to set up a gallery on or should you know coding? I'm on my phone right now and can't check it out yet.

Wordpress? You can get several gallery plugins (I use NextGEN gallery) that are varied in complexity. I didn't need to use any code for NextGEN, but setting it up how I liked took a bit of effort.

I use Webs.com for building mine. If I want to go paid with it I can but for now, it is free. Easy to use templates and easy to edit to your satisfaction!

Here is mine which is in serious need of updating! www.vonkromehaus.webs.com
