I'd thought I'd pass along this idea, in case anyone else finds it useful over the holiday season.
Every now and then there are some big events in people's lives .... weddings, graduations, new babies, anniversaries, reunions, whatever. And in this digital age, lots of different people take photos or videos of that same event and post the videos on YouTube, and upload the photos to Flickr galleries, Shutterfly galleries, Kodak galleries, and dozens of other places.
To "Give Them A Portal" all you need to do is create of web page of links to all the various photo galleries and videos that various friends and family members have created.
Making the web page of links can be easily done with a basic TypePad blog, or a free Wordpress.com blog.... you don't need to know any coding to use one of the predesigned templates. And for a few dollars you can register a domain name and map it to the portal blog.
Bob's second oldest son, Danny, got married recently. Here's what I started for Danny -- it was built in TypePad using custom (not advanced) templates:
(I still need to finish rounding up everyone's galleries. That's the hardest part <s>).
If you look at the site, please keep in mind, these are photos of ordinary people, not celebs. Nobody in the shots (me included) looks like a celeb. Except of course, Norma, who is a radiant bride.
