Possible Changes to EdinPhoto web site

Question

Two days ago, I asked here if I should add a discussion forum to the EdinPhoto web site and perhaps add links to links to Twitter and Facebook.

Replies

Thank you for all your replies.  There has been an overwhelming view (95%) that the site is fine as it is.  Thank you, all, for going to the trouble to send me your replies, and for your appreciative and encouraging comments.

Conclusion

So, for the time being, at least, I'll not make any changes to the design of the EdinPhoto site.  Please click here to read the full question and the replies that I've received.

I plan to add a little info about the EdinPhoto web site to tweets from my Twitter site, but the EdinPhoto site will continue to hold all the photos, recollections, etc.
