My new site "Moths of Great Western" is up and running.

I wanted to create a site where I could place identified species into their respective Family albums and as I am severely IT disadvantaged, building my own web page is out of the question at this stage! :-)

Ning was the best free host I could find. They also allow a large amount of bandwidth.

10 Family albums appear on the left-hand side of the main page under "Photos". Clicking on the album will open thumbnail photos. Clicking on a photo will enlarge it and show the subfamily and species at the top of the photo. Other albums may be accessed by either clicking "show all" at the bottom of the album section or clicking on "All Albums" or "My Albums".

There is a forum on the site, but you will have to join to talk to me or leave a comment on any of the photos. Communication there will be much easier than it is with blogger. No waiting for comment approval and depending who is around at the right time, real time discussions are a strong possibility.

I will still keep this blog going, but entries may not be as frequent as they have been. On the other hand, my new site is being updated regularly, whilst the moths are co-operating!!

Hope to 'see' you there!

Great work with the new website.
I have added your new site to my Insects and Spiders Reference Sites.
You're in good company there, with Donald Hobern, Duncan and Mosura, as well as Don Herbison-Evans's sites and the Chew Family of Brisbane.

Thanks for your kind words, Denis.

As you know, I am still on training wheels :-) and there is still so much to learn.

I will get around to working out how to include a links page on the new site (at this stage I have to add a widget or something!)

Without Donald, Mosura, Don Herbison-Evans et al, this mothing caper would be almost impossible for an amateur like me.
