Decided to have a go at a website on promote myplace.
Marmaduke-cottage @promotemyplace
Well I managed to delete all my photos ,text etc off the other one and now my laptop decides to delete everything from its memory so will have to get the camera out in a hurry.
Am I making a mess of it or work in progress.
I know the furniture in the sitting is not liked but unable to change at the moment.
It was done in a bit of a rush this morning when I found out my other site had been removed too early.

I do not know what the actual question is. Confused
But to help you find your way through this maybe using the wayback machine could help.

The other thing to look for is does your hosting company do back ups? If so get them to reload the website.

Sorry my question was going to be am I heading in the right direction already with my webdesign and wording but unsure if anyone can see it until my domain is transferred.which would be the same as before.
Just noticed promote my place offer to write your website .
Trying to do it myself along with 10 other jobs.
Hopefully you can shout at me shortly
Wink no idea what happen to my computer started working again ,backed everything up but my website and photos.
I am going to make this cottage work ,that flipping sitting room will be right one day . Laughing
Marmaduke-cottage.CO .UK eventually should find me on promote my place.

Bessie PM me if you want a code for a discount off your first year with Promote My Place. If you can write a letter in word, you can manage a PMP site.
Until your own domain is switched, you can use the PMP one which will be www.marmaduke-cottage.promotemyplace.com

One thing, although that is a beautiful picture of your cottage, as you've got it on the top of every page, it is detracting from the content, and you do want people to read your words. You can put smaller photos down the side of the page, and use the main header one only on the home page? You could also make the photo gallery a film strip to make it more interesting.

Could you soften the pattern with a couple of plain throws?

...or replace the cushion covers with some PLAIN coloured ones that maybe pick out one of the colours in the chairs.

Another cost-free suggestion. Get rid of some of the clutter in the kitchen and remove the strange looking bits of carpet on the floor (for the photos at least). Oh, I see you have done that in the kitchen photo on your "details" page. Ditch the other one.

There are a few typo and grammar errors on the first page.

Dinning instead of dining, dont instead of don't and airey instead of airy are a few that stand out. Also full stops should be at the end of the sentence and not preceded by a space, that should come after the full stop.
Get someone to proof-read for you if possible, or just put the text through a spellchecker.

Ideally one that checks British (and not American) English grammar and spelling - unlike LMH Wink

Is there one on the forum's software? Usually it is in the browser you use. However, to help Bessie out there are a lot of online websites which check your spelling and grammar. Type or paste your English text here and click on the "Check Text" button.
