Welcome to 1Macman's Place
I started this website for my family and friends. I wanted to provide a place, where we could stay in touch and share things with each other. I wanted to make something that was more our own, somewhere 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.
On the Website
Keep up with the latest news from family and friends as well as other news that you might find interesting.
Share and view photos and photo albums, from our family and friends, in the Photo Gallery.
Check the bulletin board for a post, look for something new in the message center and read the website email.
Go on in to the Movie Theater and take a seat, then sit back, relax and enjoy some of our home movies.
