Hi all,

I know I'm quite new to here and was looking for a bit of guidance. My son has taken quite an interest in photography and he wants a way to share his photos. He's pretty good for his age (only an early teen). I advised him for a variety of reason to refrain from social media sites, like Facebook and the like, as a medium to share his photos.

So, the point of this post is, we want to start either a blog or site for him. I think it would be a great learning experience for the both of us as neither of us have any experience with websites. In doing research a variety of hosts/website design companies have come up. 1and1 seems promising(and was recommended by a good friend) but I really want to make sure I get it right. We want something easy to use for now but also has the potential to grow if my son develops his talent and interest more. I know there are sooooo many other places that do this, so getting any feedback would be great.

Thanks to all for your help!

I'd start with a blog something like blogspot, it's easy to do and free. Some website look simple but can be very restricted in what it can do, you'l also probably find the price jumps up the second year, and your pretty much forced to pay or loose your site.
If you do go for a web site I'd suggest you buy the domain name from somewhere else so if the company gets clever the second yesr you can leave and keep your name.

Good idea. I hadn't actually thought to get a domain name from elsewhere. But now that I think about it, it makes so much sense. We'll have to do a bit more research before we make our decision, but I really appreciate the input.

Many thanks!
