Well its a start !
« on: August 30, 2013, 06:55:51 pm »
Well its a start but only a start. Its our first ever  attempt at constructing and running a website. There's nothing on it at the moment but please do keep popping in to see how things are developing. Constructive criticism and advice will be much appreciated. I've got loads of ideas and not a clue how to implement them. :excited:

Its going to take some time and head scratching to get it as we like, so bear with us. I love the fact that the package comes with a built in blog..

It's got a lovely fresh feel to the pages   :thumbsup:

Might I suggest perhaps also placing the events on the front page  until you get going. My first impression was of an empty site and took all the clicks to the last one ( events ) before getting anything up.
If the first page has something on it encourages a further investigation  :eyelashes:

It looks like a promising site, good luck with it  :horse:

I like the look of it, but you've gotta get something on the front page - even just to say welcome and keep looking as we put more content on...


Ps, love Morfa Nefyn!

Looking good!  I think instead of the photo with the flowers on as a banner you could crop the picture of you two next to the van.


Keep up the good work.


ps - do you know of anywhere near you guys where I could run a holiday camp for disabled kids over the summer holidays next year?  I'd need space for a few big tents and a couple of cars. I've used the campsite up by the golf course before, but it gets really busy and the other kids just stare at my clients...

There's a very similar camp for able bodied kids that's held every summer just off the main road between Nefyn and Morfa Nefyn. I'm not sure which organization runs it but the site could fit the bill. I'll see if I can get you some contact details. It might be worth you asking.

There's not a TAS link  :gloomy:  How did the Cider weekend go?

Maybe more photos and descriptions of your apples in both teh cider and apple juice pages.  Is this done with WEBS?  I do all of my websites on it.

Don't worry about the lack of photos, there'll be loads of those and plenty of information too. The website hasn't been activated for a week yet. ;D

You asked for comments.  I gave you the websites I've done - some of them, to give you an idea what I did.  I did these on webs.  What are you using?

TAS link?  Local Smallholder association link?  Videos - apple picking; fruit press in action?

Blogs are good, but you need to keep them up - I've got myself in a snarl with mine as I just don't have time.

Excellent, I've loved seeing your photos around the cider making on here (barrels etc) so great to see a website. We'll be going into production in a couple of years, so will be watching with interest and coming to pick your brains.  :) :thumbsup:

I'll look forward to it Dan.
The apple picking and pressing season is about to begin, so this time around I'll make sure that the camera gets some use. :fc:

That would be great, yes please!
