I have no idea where to start as Ive never done any web stuff before. What did you use to make it brett? Was looking into wordpress and that joomla thingy myself
How many hours did it take?
There's two kinds of wordpress blogs you can have, a self-hosted blog or one hosted by wordpress.com. Mine was originally self-hosted but I realized that all that wasn't necessary for what I was trying to do so I chose wordpress hosted by wordpress.com. Self hosted blogs require you to your own domain and hosting, obviously, and allow you to do much more in terms of customization and site design. Non-self hosted blogs are very limited in what you can do with them but it all depends on what you're trying to do. Mine probably took a good month (though if I did it again I could do it much quicker), that includes getting pictures, music, and video to post. I'm not familiar with joomla, but you can make a wordpress blog for free just to see how you like it.

The major downside is the lack of support wordpress offers. They hardly check their forums and only answer questions from paying customers. I'm very disappointed with their help system.

Yours looks nice, simple and clean with everything you need. Well done.

Thanks! My goal was to get all major information and media on one page for easier access. The less pages a visitor has to click through, the better.

yeah i picked up web design just because I got tired of being ripped off by web developers or being "left at the mercy" of them. It is definitely a lot of tedious work. Still like doing it myself a lot better then being at the mercy of someone else thats charging you a thousand bucks to edit a template

To anyone here who makes websites, you have my sympathies.
If only the upper management understood this, they'd stop giving me grief! Some companies have a design team, I'm just one me.

Your sympathies are greatly appreciated sir!

Thanks for the reply bret..
Joomla is open source and it seems to have a strong community but I've heard a few flakey things about the software.
