EdinPhoto Guestbook

Changes at December 2013

Guestbook Messages

Greetings messages have occasionally been posted in te EdinPhoto guestbook, especially around Christmas time.

Now that the guestbook has been closed to new postings, I've created this page to hold any greetings messages that people send to me by email to be added to the EdinPhoto the web site."

Web Site Messages

Thank you also to several people who left greetings messages and appreciative comments as part of the message they sent in response to my two recent questions:

Should I re-design the web site? and

Should the guestbook be closed to new messages?"
