Over the last 7 years or so I have been tinkering with web design and graphics. During this time I have launched and continue to run an extremely large and active forum based photography community. Additionally, Iâ€™ve successfully been blogging and started to run a cheap deals site in addition to Randomn3ss. Over the years of running the forum and the blogs, Iâ€™ve learned how to create content, drive traffic and monetize each one to make back my hosting costs and more. I no longer build websites, however I am available to hire for various social networking and community aspects of the internet, and doing the back-end installations and coding for them. Iâ€™ve installed blogging software, customized and done back end maintenance for several sites, including:
Each blog owner had specific requirements that were met as well as customization of the blogging template and custom plug-ins to make the blog both more functional and visually appealing the viewer.
