      Do you or have you ever owned a website?

      I myself don't currently own a website just this forum however I did in the past whilst I was still at school and starting college create my own website which was a Gareth Gates fan website :) I spent hours of my spare time working on the website and keeping it updated. I remember using Geocities for it which I believe is no longer around anymore.

      I've got a couple that I keep fairly updated, a personal site and my toplist

      These are both free sites, I've actually got a dozen or so half-started sites out there as well. When I come across a new free hosting site I quite often sign up and have a bit of a play.

      It's been years since i owned a proper website. Just got tired of having to manually update each page when i needed to change the link system.

      Now i only use Wordpress and blogger.com blogs and have forums. I've thought about using a content management system for articles like Joomla but haven't gotten around to it.

      Might do that later.

      As for using a real website, not ever going to happen unless it's a 4 page shake and bake site with basic info. Just too hard to get those things to rank well in search engines.

      I own a few websites.

      They're mostly information based, so people can find information that they're searching for on Google.

      Golly, I've made so many. I've got like 2 Wordpress blogs, several freewebs, Awardspace sites, Freehostia sites, Quia site, and numerous forums. Most of the blogs and websites I made are either small and frivolous or lost or dead activity. As for forums, I've made tons. Most, once again, were frivolous or inactive, many deleted, except for a few that were actually quite successful. The one I currently take care of is my Flying Fortress forum, which some of you are already members on.
