    Have you seen this? It's our own Motorhome News Magazine hosted right here at motorhomefun.co.uk. The link has been there for a day or two but I don't think too many have seen it yet. :Smile:

    Why?
    We are often pointing to other sites for reference when it comes to news or basic information, this is not good for our search engine placement; much better if we and others are pointing here :Smile: So I aim to build it into a useful resource. When its finished all stories and articles will link back here for discussion.

    It is still very much a work in progress and I'm only able to do it in my spare time, I also hope to get some volunteer reporters to assist with the odd article and campsite or product review etc. Magazine

    I welcome any comments you may have, remember this isn't my job, I'm just an enthusiastic amateur:Smile:

    Well you are certainly enthusiastic, and you are a gifted amateur, shout if I can help but I fear with my limited grasp of anything technical, I'd be of limited use........Now lets see what chrisgreen and Yosser have as an answer to that! :Angry:

    Jim,
    You ought to get paid for all the work you do on the site, you certainly deserve it with all the work you put in! I know I will not be alone in expressing my thanks for all your hard work.

    I have just had a look at the magazine and think this format would make for an excellent home page, it looks a lot like the BBC home page where lots of subjects are presented on the first page and you then link to where you want go.

    This may not be possible for many reasons but it is my thought, but I am happy for you to what you think is best.

    Please keep up the good work.

    Norman

    Been, looked and I am back

    Had a look Jim, only one story made me click on it.. the Sea France.. seems a bit old news now.. out of interest DFDS has pulled out of trying to buy Sea France... so there is no active buyer now.. so there is a good chance it will go in February unless the French are allowed to put more state money in.

    Read the whole page, good, liked it.. would have like to see a little bit of news of RV's but then I know most of MHF is euroboxes. May be we need something like it on RVOC?

    Well done for doing it... man of many talents.. Bacon Rolls and a magazine, whatever next:Blush:

    There will be RV related stuff. One of the upcoming articles will be called "Why I bought an RV" you will recall I have been doing some research on the RVOC site. I hope to develop it as just a regular in house magazine so all motorhome related topics will be covered. Hopefully the news magazine will be be good enough for other sites to link to it, this gives us more of that all important Google love.:Smile:
