Hey, do any of you guys have a blog ?
I thought I would give it a go, as I still have not got my website together,
Its quite easy to set up and use,

Yeah, a couple of other members (sonny comes to mind) have had blogs.
I've thought about it but decided that I don't have enough to say to keep it interesting or updated !
I'd probably just repeat whatever I said here ...

Which is why I can't be bothered with a DA account or posting on other forums .... though if Brian were to shut this forum down I'd have to find somewhere else to go ... probably hold my nose and go with Art Papa ... :jocolor:

(ouch! ... sorry AP lurkers !)

*edit* - I just had a sudden realization ... maybe it's because I'm using this forum as my own personal blog !! Now I feel like an idiot !! :oops: :oops:

I like the look of your blog, Phil. Nice colour choice. Though I'm wondering if you could centre your blog title better. Having your name across two lines isn't happening !

Since we're on the subject .. I find the set up of your website really distracting .. too much animation to get through and too much crap going on ! Makes me not want to spend time there ..
No offense, I want to visit .. just an honest criticism. :)

What do you mean by this? You don't have your website up, or you don't have it designed yet? I design websites, if you would like some help or anything, let me know ;-)

No its free ! Blogger.com is now run by google, and all their stuff is usually free these days, its quite easy to set up too, give it a go.
You may not get many replies, but I think it is great for your own satisfaction, as it gives you something to look back on, where you were at a certain time etc.

Thanks Deadwood, I do have some experience with websites, have had one in the past.
I have got the domain name already: http://www.philipdeangray.com, and I do have a few of the design elements done, the image header for the front page, buttons etc, plus I have got the forum in place, I just need to knuckle down and spend a few days getting it set up properly etc.
thanks for the help anyway, its good to know I can call on someone if I need a bit of help !

Ya-hoooooo!
It would be great if everyone on here get their own blog and websites going,
I see a lot of the "newbies" have taken the plunge into getting their own websites already, but not so much of the more experienced artists.
I know its a bit "pot-kettle-black" as mine is still in the pipeline.

Thats weird Brendan,
It shows up as all on one line on my comp, in both IE and Firefox.
What browser are you using ?
Are you using a mac, although I have one it is not hooked up to the 'net.
just wondering if it was a weird mac type thing ?

Ha ha, I think DA is a good place to set up, you do meet some really good people on there, I have been corresponding with a photographer for instance, and he has kindly allowed me to draw some of his photos, and has even sent me some hi -rez versions to draw from, nothing better than getting permission from the guy who took the photos , plus the model has also agreed.
Thats just one example, there are also pencil artists "clubs" etc
you never know what might come of linking up and collaborating with other like minded artists and photographers.
