Welcome to 1Macman's Place
I started this website, as a place, where my family and friends can stay in touch and share things with each other. I wanted to make something that felt more our own, away from the larger social media sites.
Family and friends can share things like, their favorite photos or the latest news, a special event such as a birthday or an anniversary, or even a home movie. For more information on sharing your content see sharing information.
I am continually working to improve the website, hopefully making your visit, more enjoyable. If you have a suggestion for the website, please feel free to contact me anytime. Also make sure to tell other family members and friends about the site, so they can participate and enjoy it too.
